My German flagged boat is currently laying in the Mediterranean
but I intend to bring her to the Carribean using a Yacht Transportation Agency. I am a German citizen with Permanent Residence (green card) in the US. Port of arrival will likely be St.Thomas, USVI.
I found it difficult to find information on entry-formalities: Are there any customs- port- or other taxes/fees assessed by the USVI? Fellow-sailors told me horrifying stories of boats being considered imports when entering via cargo-ship, causing substantial taxes
. Does anybody have information on these matters?
Does anybody have recommendations on Marinas
either in the USVI or Puerto Rico
, preferably with Internet
Thanks in advance.
