Default Did you manage to fit a 8'6''-9' CC into a 40 feet container ?

I am abroad and I want to ship a 24-28 ft. CC to my home country. I need to put it in a 40 feet container, otherwise shipping costs will be almost like 50% of the boat price, I would rather put the money in electronics rather than shipping. I have seen some companies that do have a solution for this size of boats. I just wonder if you can help me with a company that does the same and you had an experience with !!

Thanks....

Most shipping containers are a little
under 8’ wide on the inside. I think it’s 7’8”. Don’t know how you’ll swing that one unless you get a tall container and turn it on it’s side.

I have someone who handles difficult shipments. I'll look up his info.

I sent you a private message with his info.

There are some people on this site who would consider just driving the boat across the ocean to be the easiest, safest way to get it there.

Cut it down to 7' wide. Stack the two pieces. Fill the extra space in the container with some 1708 and fiberglass resin.

Containers are too narrow you have 7’9” inside. Might be cheapest to slap it on a trailer and send it roll-on / roll-off.

You'll have to put it on a flat rack container then it will be stacked on top of whatever tier on the ship. Not all that uncommon.

Sometimes they turn them on their side in a special cradle as the container is higher than wider

That would take me to below 20 feet boat which doesn't match my needs to fit family and friends...
