If the boat reaches a non-EU port with 18 months, the 18 month clock gets reset. If not, VAT will be due and payable. If an EU resident skippers the boat, VAT is due and payable.

I hope this helps...

 the boat will leave EU waters before it has spent 18 months there;

 it will be used only by the persons responsible for bringing it into the EU and their immediate family who are also resident outside the EU;

 if the person to whom temporary admission relief has been granted wishes to leave the EU temporarily but keep the boat in the EU until their return, they will need to get prior authorisation from Customs and comply with any additional conditions which may be imposed; and

 the boat must not be lent, hired, chartered or sold whilst in the EU;

There must be something wrong or in addition to this information. Certainly not every Giga-yacht that is flagged in the Caymans or any other flag of convenience can only be captained by a non-EU resident and only have non-EU guests. And never chartered?

Never heard this before and this paragraph from the cited wiki article gave me a chuckle. Perhaps Trump 2024 for German Presidency (Chancellorship)? :biggrin:

Previous law: Article 21-19(5)
In 2001, as Bill Clinton finished his second term as President of the U.S. (the legal limit of terms under the U.S. Constitution), a theory was published by CNN that he could claim citizenship of France and run for leadership there.[29] The open-letter by historian Patrick Weil held that a little known "law, passed in 1961 [article 21-19(5)], enables people from former French territories to apply for immediate naturalisation, bypassing the normal five-year residency requirement for would-be French citizens."[30] As Clinton was born in Arkansas which had been part of French Louisiana before it was sold to the US, it was held that he would qualify under this law. And as a naturalised French citizen, he could run in the French presidential election.

Clinton himself later repeated this claim in 2012 as an amusing thought when speaking to an interviewer.[31] Clinton had always dismissed the idea, and at the time of his retelling of the story in 2012, unknown to him, the possibility had already ended. This was because article 21-19(5) of the Code civil was repealed (by article 82 of law 2006-911) on July 25, 2006 under the direction of Nicolas Sarkozy, who was then Minister of the Interior. Since "Weil's article made this provision of the French nationality law notorious, the French parliament abolished it".

We were talking about a boat *purchased in EU* with no VAT paid, and registered in non-EU country.
