Boats outside of USA

Doubleplay,

I am in Spain right now and have found the new boats alot cheaper as well. I am considering buying one and shipping it back home.

Do you know if the EU countries actally rebate the entire VAT charge of 16%?

The import duty in the US is 1.5 %, but do you know if any there is any state sales tax that has to be paid when registering the boat under a US flag?

Happy Sailing
