I understand RORO and LOLO (lift on lift off, and requiring building a cradle) are two completely different things. Just tossed my number out for comparison purposes.

I would assume you're not using a yacht shipper. Much different boat and assume you're just putting it on a regular freight carrier. Also, insurance is not really something you should consider optional as a lot of boats do get damaged. So, add that to the price.
