Buying in USA for use in UK

New and used Boats in America are generally 50% cheaper than their UK equivalent. Does anyone know of a shipping company that could transport small yachts (18ft to 25ft) from the US of A to England?

Stoic...Don't forget that you will owe VAT when importing a boat. Anyway...Dockwise is in the business of shipping boats from US to EU and you might want to take a look at their site. If you book well in advance OR show up at the last and space is available minute you can save 20-30% or so over the normal rate.
