Default Import a boat.


Hi.
Can anyone comment of the idea of shipping a used boat from USA to UK?
Been looking for a cheap Bayliner type boat, around 26 footer, and to say I
was shocked at prices in UK is putting it mildly.
Looked in Glasgow a few days ago, a dealer with 26 foot, 1990 bayliner,
scruffy condition and asking 17000 without a trailer.
Just had a look on ebay.com and seen identical boat, much cleaner looking
condition for 12,500 US dollars, a little over 7000.
Just wondering if it would be worth the trouble, and apart from shipping
costs, what other costs would be involved, like the tax man.

it will cost about 5K to ship across, there should be no import TAX on a
second hand boat - check HM Customs & Excise!
Try looking at Belgium/Holland etc first
