Re: import duty or tax when importing a boat

Has anyone bought a boat in Europe and sailed it back to the USA? I am trying to find out about paying the duty "tax" and any other fees that I will be facing.

That means a great deal for a buyer and seller if that is true. Anyone know what the VAT tax amounts to? How is it figured so I can subtract that from the asking prices when looking over ADs?

Lastly, I got the duty tax down, thanks for all the contributors. But how about our countries(USA) normal property tax. Are boats taxed yearly based on thier value like homes/real estate? How much? Or if not, is it because they are for pleasure and not a home? If you live on your boat does the tax status change?

Thanks
Regarding VAT (value added tax) in Sweden a tour bus guide explained VAT for us its 100%. Example $20k car +$20k vat +$40k car and it is added to the price when sold. I am sure he was no financier but he lives there and should know.
Completely off subject we asked him about some small cabins 10-12 beside the road he explained they were for anyone's use only had to replace what was used (they are fully stocked. Just bring your own food and blankets. Cant imagine anything like this in the US it be would be broken,robbed,covered in graffiti then burned down

Re: import duty or tax when importing a boat

im interested too....this thread sounds much more simple than some of the other advice flowing around...

if I take my boat back to the states maybe in 2015 for a while to work a bit or whatever or cruise...I was wanting to know if it would simply be easier to register in the states again(it was californian, then south african and now salvadorean registered)

any new input would be great(I realize the thread is old too)

thanks

Re: import duty or tax when importing a boat

register in Oregon, no sales tax . I think it was something like $180.00 for 2 year tags.
