Buy Boat in US as Canadian citizen?

Ahoy! I have heard that great deals, especially nowadays, can be had in US compared with Canada. As a Canadian (in Toronto) other than travelling over to NY, what procedures would I need to follow to purchase and return it to Canada?

thanks,
don

Campbdon-

Lots of good threads on this in the past year... Try these three to start with. Also, recommend you read the POST in my signature to help you get the most out of sailnet.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Actually It is super simple. The US Coast Guard and Canadian Coast Guard have a Mutual Recognition Agreement. US standards are accepted in Canada and Vice Versa. The only exception is compliance labels. Canada requires a Conformance Label which you get from the Canadian Coast Guard. If the boat manufacturer sells boats in Canada they can take care of this for you. There is some paperwork. Otherwise, it's buy the boat and have it delivered, or deliver it yourself. Here is a link to the Canadian Coast Guard Office of Boating Safey on importing boats from the US. Purchase / Transfer of Boat - Office of Boating Safety - Transport Canada It's on the lower half of the page.
