Import Boat from Europe to Canada


I bought this summer an 42' sailing catamaran in the Netherlands, built professional 1988 in the UK out of Wood/Epoxy, which I plan to bring sometime next year to Canada were I'm living as a permanent resident. I still have a German passport. How long can I keep the boat in Canada under her current non Canadian flag before I have to pay tax and duty? And would it be possible for me to sell my boat to a family member and that from this sales price then tax and duty will be calculated?
