Canadian Buying Outboard for Dinghy in US?

I am interested in buying a Nissan 9.8 outboard.
I see them priced at $1695 at onlineoutboards.com in the US with free shipping to a US destination.

When I price the same motor in Canada I get quoted $2700.

Does anyone know if there us duty payable on an outboard imported into Canada from the US.

Does anyone have any experience with onlineoutboards.com (Cumberland Water Sports) in Cooksville TN?

Thanks, Jon

I assume the motor is not made in the US so there would be duty + PST +GST. The duty on boats is 9%, don't know what it would be for motors. If you bought the motor in the US and were out of the country for the requisite time period you could bring it back and pay the difference between the price and your exemption.

There is no duty on the motor. You will be liable for GST and PST. Note that there may be manufacturing standards unique to Canada that may render your motor inadmissible if it does not comply. It would be a very good idea to contact Transport Canada before you buy it.

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.

Thanks for the information.
I will contact Transport Canada to see if the US version of the motor is approved in Canada.

The Nissan 9.8 now comes in 4 stroke, but not too long ago it came as a 2 stroke weighing in @ 58 lbs. I am still watching for one (2 stroke) for sale. which one are you pricing?

I was talking 4 stroke. The weight of the 2 stroke is compelling however.

No duty, just the GST and a freight surcharge. The engine's are approved for sale in Canada and the warranty is still good in both countries. Since the dollar went into the toliet its become cost effective. The 2-strokes are no longer being imported into the U.S. or Canada.
