Getting your Boat to Vancouver

We recommend shipping your boat to Vancouver as follows:

  • Use of a 40′ high-cube open top container
  • Via Panama Canal (approx. 42 days) or via Montreal and rail/road
  • Mast can be sleeved or transported separately. Please contact us for further information.
  • Costs: Approximately US $10,000 – $15,000, (both ways) from Europe

2015 World Champion Llanoria is a wooden boat, not fiber glassed, and has been shipped five times in a high-cube open top container without any damage.

Detailed information on boat logistics can be found in this .pdf document.
