Thumbs up Importing a US boat into Canada... I did it

It was not a big deal once I found out how to do it. I researched a few websites and found an excellent article that walked me through the whole process. It think it cost me ten bucks...

Anyway, I brought back a great deal from Michigan and saved thousands.

The site was used-boats-canada.ca it think.

Our dollar being so close to par makes this the best time to shop down there.

Regards,

Brian Berker, Mississauga

I know there is a 1.5% import fee when you bring a boat into USA from Canada. If moving a boat to Canada it depends on if the boat was built in NA or not. If not then a rather high import duty is due.

Going through it right now....quite easily actually, you can even import it by water. PST/GST due at border along with duty (9.5% on a jeanneau) on anything built outside the US. Bill of sale and pay the bill and you are good to go. If you can be there in person when the boat crosses you will need a customs broker which I have heard is about $150.00 but not sure on the price.
