I saw that yesterday on Jdaniels Yatch Transport webpage .They hauled a big
Hans Christian 44 pilot house sailboat thru our little town here a few years back . It was quite a sight to see. They parked it overnight just down the street from the lumber yard .

That's quite a picture! I love to know where the haul was from and went to.

Just to throw a data point into the mix, one of the parties interested in Stout shared that the shipping quote they received (Ensenada MX to Port Everglades FL) was $27k.

Maybe shipping from coast to coast in Mexico might be the way to go, has anyone done that ? Or is the liability a no no, sure would shorten the haul.

Ensenada Mexico, where the yacht transport companies load, is less than 30 hours' running from where she (Stout) lies. Insurance is part of the shipping fee, so I'm not sure where there would be any exposure.

A large chunk of the large yacht charter fleet is shipped this way back and forth between the Mediterranean and the Caribbean every season, though the majority that have the fuel range make the trips on their own bottoms.

Another way to go would be to hire a delivery captain to bring her around, joining the boat for the segments that are appealing and/or fit into one's schedule.

The latter would also allow experiencing cruising amazing cruising grounds that you mightn't get another chance to do, like the Sea of Cortez.

Just sayin'....

Saw a KK42 here in Texas Wednesday. A bit rough. Blistering along the sides from the rub-rail down, broken windows, . . . Just didn't appear to be loved at all. Also got a chance to see a DeFever 44. Not the most perfect or cleanest, but the engine room gave the appearance of an owner that cared. Lots of good outdoor space, and a walk-around queen bed.

Jacks, I think you are in a bit of a dilemma. You like the KK 42 for plenty of good reasons. However, you are shy about spending a lot of money on an older boat, again for plenty of good reasons. The problem is that a KK42 in great shape, with decent upgrades and maintenance, will still be an expensive (in my world anyway) boat. An affordable KK42 will have lots of issues or work to do.

From the little that I have seen, true passagemakers demand a premium. Partly because of the build quality and design features, but also likely because there aren't that many of them out there.

There are some nice KK42s on the market up here in the PNW, but that is a long trip round to your waters which depending on your wallet and calendar, could be a good or a bad thing.

Kadey-Krogen Yachts just listed another KK 42 at Fort Pierce on Yachtworld.

1985 Kadey Krogen 42 Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

Nice thing about this one is it already had the fuel tanks replaced and had a bottom job and the engine was overhauled last year. The deck teak was replaced without using screws. It also has Naiad stabilizers and a water maker.

I like the boat. The price, not so much.

It all boils down to the age old dilemma of money vs time. "Save money" buying the beater or save time buying the pampered princess. Make your choices and pay your piper.

New tanks, engine overhaul, and bottom job is worth about $25 to $30k. Not a bad deal, really!
