I just purchased my first ever boat(2001 malibu wakesetter lsv) in California from a private party & need to get it shipped to me in Minnesota. Does anyone know of a good shipping company to do this for me? Thanks for the advice.

So I too am going to be in need very soon of a company that can ship a boat across the country from West coast to East coast, preferably in a container or inside and not towing it.

I'm wondering if Dan ever found such a company for his need and if there are any others out there that will see this post and reply. There has to be more people that have needed a service like this on Wakeworld.

Road tripping it is not an option for me unfortunately, because I would love to have that option but the 2500 miles one-way is a serious deterrent and I'd have to take off a week of work just to pick it up and bring it back.

Does anyone have a ballpark figure of what this costs?

Secondary question of mine: After checking a couple of transport companies it seems that shipping the boat in an enclosed trailer or flatbed costs a LOT more than just towing it. Has anyone ever had a boat shipped by having he company tow it? I'm real leery about this because it's a 2,500 mile trip.
