Annapolis Rigging posted the above ad and a buyer came from Denmark.

So how do you ship a big Mast & Mizzen to Denmark?

The rig will go on a ship leaving Baltimore going to Rotterdam. From there it will go by truck to Denmark and the new Owners home.


So how did the transaction work;

The mast sold for $9,000. The buyer sent Annapolis Rigging a 50% deposit to secure the sale and to have the shipping crate built. The remaining 50% transferred when the truck picked up the mast. The buyer arranged for the shipping and knew the trucks schedule and the ships schedule. The buyer paid for shipping directly.


This 78 foot by 2ft by 2ft crate contains a main mast, mizzen mast, booms, rod rigging and many parts. The box is mostly for protection and storage, while the masts themselves offer the structural rigidity.

The crate will have two well marked designated lifting points as this package is very heavy.

When the box was lifted it weighed 3,500 lbs, measured by two load cells.
