The estimated cost to prep a boat for trucking out is as follows:

Full service mast unstep - $13.50/ft.
Pack mast for shipping - 2-3 hrs. $95.00/hr.

Pack boat for shipping - $95.00/hr. (if needed)
Load boat onto truck - $8.00/ft. ($10.00/ft. peak time)
When applicable: Load mast onto truck $2.00/ft.; load out cradle $50.00
Sailboats or extra tall powerboats: There will be additional charges if the keel and/or deck hardware needs to be removed and wrapped or packed.

Crowley's needs a minimum of 7-10 days notice to have boat ready for trucking out. The trucking company must contact Crowley's 48 to 72 hours before arrival. We cannot determine the exact amount of time needed to pack the boat and mast without looking at the boat. Crowley's will contact you with an update on charges in addition to the estimate. The work needs to be paid in full before the boat leaves the yard.
Crowley’s Yacht Yard cannot guarantee bridge clearance if the boat is extra high. All boat trailers should check into the office before entering the yard. 72 hour notice is required to load or offload a boat. You must arrive at our gates before 2:00 pm to be loaded or offloaded or overtime rates will apply.
