Re: Importing a Boat From Canada To United States

Another resurrection of this very old thread. I read on this thread no duty, but I see 1.5% on the customs website. There is no mention on the customs site of any relief for a U.S. built boat being brought in. Can anyone point me to anything different?

Re: Importing a Boat From Canada To United States

I dont think that a Canadian or any other foreign built boat can be documented in the US for "coastwise"(no commercial work)..It could have changed by now, not sure ..

Re: Importing a Boat From Canada To United States

Since I'm investigating importing a Canadian-built boat from Canada to USA, here's what I've found:

https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/det...WE5vTGxpeW4%3D

Requires proof of ownership (bill of sale) and EPA form for the motor. If the motor is more than 20 years old there's no EPA rubbish to deal with, just a check box.

Duty on sailboats is 1.5% unless NAFTA, when it's 0%. However, one has to have proper documentation- the Certificate of Origin. https://www.cbp.gov/sites/default/fi...Form%20434.pdf

I think it would be wise to employ an import broker (not yacht broker) to ensure everything is coordinated ahead of time. One missing piece, and it could turn into a nightmare.
