Import a sailboat from Canada.

I am planning to buy a boat at Canada and bring into southern California,
is there any complecated procedure or should I look for a broker to helping me?
And trucking price is different from Canada compare with domestic trucking?
And does anyone have an experience import a sailboat from Europe?
Thank you for advance,

Re: Import a sailboat from Canada.

I bought a Canadian Sailcraft 30 in Goderich, Ontario and imported it to Buffalo, NY. I had no problems. You need to have the vessel inspected by customs when it enters this country. For any boat manufactured in North America there is no import fee. You will be subject to sales tax where you live though. I hope this helps.

What boat are you looking at?
Location?
Can you take possession in Wa State?
