GBR - South - 2 options

David Rickard's Lorry. I can arrange 2 possible transport options to Palma and back for less than £500 per boat, if we can get enough interest.

1.A transport company will take 10 boats (or however, many we can get in - stacked) in a lorry there and back. They have experience transporting boats to and from Palma. The cost is per lorry, so the more boats the lower the cost.

2. a trailer that can take about 6 boats but we will need an experienced driver and car.

Sailboats Deliveries to Palma for the UK fleet (just 2 spaces remain; They have 12 confirmed and will take 14 max (no more) Price is £700 once 13 are confirmed.

At Sailboat Deliveries Ltd we offer fantastic delivery services for European events, and are scheduled to be delivering to the Musto Skiffs event in Palma 2017.

Delivery prices for the Musto Skiffs event in Palma will be charged at £750 per boat (subject to confirmation on a ferry discount) with a minimum of 8 boats per trailer. We would take a deposit of £250 per boat on booking, with the final balance due one month before the event.

All our delivery drivers are CPC trained, which is a legal requirement as of 10th September 2014 for drivers of any vehicle combinations over 3.5 tonnes. As well as being CPC trained:
·         Our vehicles are TACHO fitted 
·         Our HGV operator’s licence enables us to transport loads anywhere in Europe
·         We are members of the Road Haulage Association, and work to their conditions of carriage and storage to get things right first time, every time
·         We have goods in transit insurance so your goods are covered in the unlikely event of any damage. We also have public liability insurance for your extra peace of mind
·         We have an extensive knowledge of competitive sailing and are able to provide a full professional service

If this delivery interests you please email to request a booking form, and we look forward to receiving any questions that you may have.

Sailors are more than welcome to leave their boats with us for some time before the delivery commences. We're also happy to store the boats until the sailors can find time to collect their boats after the event. We're happy and able to be flexible about how long it takes anyone to reach us. We also offer boat storage for a price so anyone struggling to make it within a reasonable amount of time can contact us for a storage quote for a longer term solution.

If we only have a small number of boats on the third trailer then we should be able to squeeze these onto the first two trailers, but obviously we can only do this for so many boats so we do need to be careful.

GBR - North (Now fully booked)

Tony Ainsworth is running a 7 boat trailer from the North of the U.K. 
For more information or to book a space with Tony, please contact him directly on 07860 221923
