Re: Purchasing a Sailboat from the US?

Ok. Curiosity will probably kill me, but what are the import taxes? I see it starts with the 9%. How much more?

My neighbors have a Hallberg Rassy, which they brought to the US from Europe. It flies the Canadian flag, but they tell me they will never actually import her there. One drives to RI from Montreal (~6hrs), the other from London (~9hrs). They both say that flying commercial takes longer, after clearing security, baggage and customs.
