VAT on equipment for foreign registered yachts

Iíve purchased a yacht in Europe and will be fitting it out with a variety of equipment after taking possession of it in France. It will registered outside of the EU, but Iíll be doing most of the initial fitout inside the EU, as well as sailing for periods of time in the Med. As a foreign registered boat and non EU citizen am I able to claim any VAT exemption for the equipment, purchased either within the EU or imported from elsewhere. If not, are there countries inside the EU where VAT is lower. Equipment will include watermakers, life rafts etc.

You can't have an exemption, but you are eligible for a tax refund.

Re: VAT on equipment for foreign registered yachts

Thanks for the reply. I guess Iím more thinking of importing gear from the US or the UK if Brexit happens. Iíll be a foreign registered yacht so Iím trying to avoid paying Euro VAT in wherever I might be at the time. Iíd imagine a few people have gone through a similar process. Iím still trying to get my head around the Schengen wormhole for people and boats so Iíd appreciate anyoneís experiences
