I'm certainly not an expert on buying
a boat in Mexico
(I'm in the US) but did look in to it last year. A very reputable broker in La Paz
(also Matzalan) told me that there is a 100% legal
way to buy a boat down there without paying Mexican import fees
. You'll need to check that out. I would recommend that you don't try and do anything illegal in any case.
I would bet money
, though, that many surveys have been done by US surveyors in San Carlos
without any problems. I would also bet money
that it would not be looked at well by the authorities. Lots of things are done down there the way they are because there is sometimes no other way to get it done (well).
