Last year I read a Practical Sailor article on a 40' monohull designed
to be containerized. At the time, I believe it cost roughly $11,000
to ship the boat via container, and $16,000 to ship it on a large
I don't know how this would compare for a multihull with a 20'+ beam.
I imagine the multi would cost more on a boat-transport, unless you
could collapse the beam down to 12' to 14'.
Because the costs are somewhat close, I'm not sure that cost would the
the final justification. The container would be more secure, though,
and could be sent to places the boat transfer folks don't visit. That

container ? I recently read a post in another D.L. that claimed
shipping cost have gone way up (two or three fold) do to high oil
prices. If this is true it may not be as economical as in past and
may not be realistic option.

> One thing I neglected to mention in my "containerization" idea, is
that if I go that route, I would want to be able to re-containerize
the boat. Apart from sailing fantasies, I have long wanted to live for
a year in many countries around the globe. Part of that was the idea
that I might be able to ship my boat to Europe for a couple years,
then Australia, then NZ, etc, etc.
