Island 44

Has anyone transported a 44 Flush Deck by truck? We are looking at purchasing one but need to truck it 800 miles. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Cheers.

Last year I bought 36' IG Classic LRT and we were not able to bring it anywhere by truck. The only way was to saw off the upper bridge and then reattached. We had to do the half of Great Loop to get it home.
Good Luck.

Is this an Island Gypsy Flush Deck 44? If so it is too high to ship without removing the flybridge which can be a real PITA.

Vadim has the right idea. Boats belong in the water, pilot it home and enjoy the awesome experience.
I have delivered my last three boats to CT from Michigan (5 weeks on the water), Ogdensburg, NY (3 weeks on the water) and Maryland (2 weeks on the water) and wish I had the time to do it again.
