Vesper Marine AIS XB-8000

Looking to buy a new or second hand unit from the outside EU market.

Prices / taxes in Europe are outrageous (1005 USD instead of 799 USD) for exactly the same unit.
Figured I'd rather pay for the shipping cost than spent 200 dollar more.

Let me know if you have one or if you're able to send one !

Brgds,
Safc

Kemp, you are an absolute hero !!!

Not sure however how they'll charge the "extra" 3,8 % after 3 months ?? QUOTE: Please note as this item is manufactured outside the EU it is liable for import duty if it is not installed on a sea going vessel, commercial or leisure. You must confirm to us within 3 months of purchase that the unit has been installed and supply details of the name of vessel, type of vessel, date and person who install the equipment otherwise we will raise an invoice for the import duty which is currently 3.8% UNQUOTE

Strange. I really have no idea about this tax. Maybe you should ask them. Also check this company, it seems they even ship to some countries for free or maybe just in UK. From my perspective, you should contact both companies to be sure they have XB-8000 in stock for this price.

BTW if you are not planning to use separate VHF antenna for your XB-8000 buy Vesper Marine SP160 Antenna Splitter. It works great.
