French territories- French Polynesia and New Caledonia

Hi

Wondering if anyone has any experience on what the process is of moving a boat that is imported in one French Territory to another French territory? If I was to decide to purchase a yacht in Noumea, which is fully imported in NC, has had all duties paid, keep it there for a number of years and then decide to move it to Bora Bora, for more than the 3 years allowed, do I have to pay import duties into FP again?

Anybody know who could I ask?

I got a reply from the customs guys in New Caledonia. Two scenarios:
If you have owned the yacht for 18 months and change your residency to NC then you do not pay any duties accept if you sell the boat within 5 years.
If you do not change your residency then you have to pay the duty-but will be given a credit for the tax you had paid in FP.
Waiting to here if it works the other way too.
