Expensive is a dangerous word because we all interpret it differently. I know many who have shipped similar boats and found the shipping to be "quite reasonable", another set of dangerous words as they are different to different people. Now, land shipment is quite a bit less than water, where possible.
I'd suggest the OP ask about a specific route or length of route and some here can then share their experiences and costs and let the OP decide if that's expensive or not. Many have found it still worthwhile to buy boats on the opposite coasts even. Also, if looking at a specific boat and route, call some of the top shippers and find out what it will cost.
