1.       Pure Ocean Port to port service.  We take your empty trailer to Hawaii and receive your boat on trailer in Honolulu to return back to either San Diego or LA per below schedule.

2.       Our ‘full service’ program includes move of trailer from Honolulu port to our storage yard in Kapolei (West Side of Oahu), haul-out of your yacht, de-rigging and loading of your yacht & rig etc. to the trailer for ocean transport.  Our partners on Sand Island are experts at de-rigging & preparing yachts for ocean transit.

Ocean Shipping Pricing between the Mainland and Hawaii:

Pasha started offering racers a very large discount from normal tariff rates years ago as part of our sponsorship and to encourage participation in the race. 

The Ocean Shipping Price for empty trailer moves to Hawaii is $2,000 <= 40’ in length and the eastbound yacht shipping on trailer is $15 per SqFt on greatest dimensions of your yacht not including trailer & mast.

*Boats above 45’ in length and over 12’ draft would require detailed review and a customized quote.

Hawaii trailer storage and yacht preparation Pricing:

The above services 1-3 are a ‘package’ deal and we will only offer it as a complete package separate from Ocean shipping.  

Any delays for issues not caused by our crew with your yacht will be billed at an additional hourly rate of $40 per man hour to resolve and finish yacht preparation on trailer.  If you are planning to prepare and deliver your boat to us, please use Keehi Marine or someone with experience around ocean shipping.  You can send us pictures of loaded boat in advance of drop off to make sure it is properly secured and loaded for ocean transport.  Boats have been refused by our terminal supervision for insufficient securements on trailer and mast placement.  The doorway to the ships are 18’ or 20’ tall and yachts on trailer are backed up the ramp (stern first).  The ramp angle up to the door is approximately 7 degrees, so if your mast is long, set high on the boat or trailer andextends more than a few feet off the stern, it may be refused by terminal supervision to avoid damage during loading.  Due to ramp angle the mast should not be set low to the ground either.
