I would guess approx USD 2500,- pluss some terminal handling etc. for a 20' dv container. Costs involved i.e: terminal & handling NYC, general freight, bunker surcharge, currency surcharge, ISPS (security fee) bill of lading fee etc. THC at arrival port, documentation, customs clearance.
Internal with of container is 239 cm. Shipping wider boats often done on a either 20' or 40' flatrack container with poss. for overwidth. Recommend that you contact a shipping company in order to get a exact quote. Maybe Shipping Services NYC have service to UK, try ssiny@fremuragroup.com
PS. dont forget "CE" approval if needed.

Then there's the cost of putting the front foot back on the 21 foot boat after you've got it out of the 20 foot container (not forgetting the engine of course)

I would have choosed to cut of the bow instead of the transom, less work and cost!! Gaffa tape is cheap however. Maybe better to choose a 40' container after all ?

Go RORO, and get it shrink wrapped before shipping.
Anything that needs lifting on & off (ie containers) will be more.
