Re: Bahamian Customs Seizure - Pleasure Vessel - Any Experience?
Thank you much for the quick reply. Just to be clear, I am not trying to scam customs or bribe them in anyway. My employer is handling the recovery of the vessel and I am just trying to get an idea of what to expect from Customs in terms of statutory penalties and fees. There is no line-item for paying bribes to our client haha. Bahamian attorneys don't want to fill us in on the details until we pay them a hefty retainer, which may not be in our best interests depending on the costs to legitimately have the vessel released and all storage claims paid.
I definitely don't want to get a bad name on here, or in the area generally. I'm just looking for experiences, which I appreciate you sharing.
