The hauler will have to have a crane or float on trailer, and the ability to take down mast.

Do an internet search on "louisiana sailboat transport with crane" and you will find many transporters like: Oversize Transfer and Trucking | The Premier Trucking and Crane Company . You might need to hire a separate crane company and transporter.
  • Any boat over 8’6” wide must have a permit issued by the state and a permit service is required. Keep in mind that some cities and metropolitan areas may require additional permits.
  • Any boat over 12’ wide will require an escortfor all boat movers.
  • Any load that can be reduced to legal, 13’6”, must be done so prior to boat transport.
  • Travel restrictions may apply on federal and state holidays.

I can also recommend Derek and SMS. They moved our boat last fall and did a superior job.

Try Rooke Sails in Memphis. They have a hydraulic trailer & integrated crane that would be ideal for your application. Close to your locale also. Where in S. Louisiana is your final destination?

3rd vote for Sailors Moving Sailers. He will raise and lower the mast but I don’t think he can load your boat from a ramp. It’s worth a call to him. I used them last Oct and was very satisfied.
