Costs are in US Dollars
|San Francisco to Puget Sound||$3500-$5000|
|Southern California to Puget Sound||$4500-$7500|
|Tahiti to Panama||$23000|
|Houston Texas to Miami Florida||$9000|
|Seward Alaska to So. Oregon||$7000|
Note: These numbers reflect great variations in fuel costs and consumption, and may not be true for a vessel you have in mind. Also, you should not assume that a trip run in the opposite direction will cost the same. Panama to Tahiti, could be done in 4-5 weeks instead of the nearly 8 that it took the other way. In addition fuel is about $4.30 cents a gallon now, versus up to $1.50 just 2 or 3 years ago when some of these trips took place. For a big powerboat run fast, fuel is the largest part of the cost. Assume about 50%-80% more than the numbers above for trips to be done presently.
Estimates base upon the table above for a trip today.
|San Francisco to Puget Sound||$5000-$7500|
|Southern California to Puget Sound||$7500-$13500|
|Tahiti to Panama||$33000|
|Houston Texas to Miami Florida||$14000|
|Seward Alaska to So. Oregon||$12000|
One final note: these numbers include everything expended for making the trip.
The cost of a delivery can vary quite a bit. To make an efficient plan(low cost), requires knowing details about the route and vessel. With this knowledge in hand it then becomes possible to make a plan which holds the costs to the minimum, with due consideration for safety.
