Great disappointment today. I have received an updated quote from Dockwise with a price to ship Malua, my 42ft yacht from Brisbane to the Med and accepted their offer. I told them to draw up the contract. They came back with an increased price almost double the original price. This is now the sixth price I have received for the same vessel and the same voyage. All previous prices have been almost the same. I can not explain what has gone wrong so I have told the local agent to go away and come up with a final price similar to the previous quotes. We will wait and see.
