FirstSteps is on a distinguished road
Importing to the UAE, or other option

Hi all,

Mrs FirstSteps has decided that it's a good thing to take our boat to the United Arab Emirates for a couple of years.

I know we're only going to be there for a couple of years and I don't want to sell our pride and joy, but don't want to leave her languishing in an Australian marina either.

Has anyone imported a boat to the UAE before. Recommendations ?

Thanks in Advance .


SV FirstSteps

Technically, you're not importing the boat, but bringing the boat into the country temporarily, since you're not going to be there permanently. That may make a huge difference in the paperwork you have to do and what fees you have to pay. Importing the boat generally requires paying a VAT or import duty. Visiting boats don't have to pay that--but you will probably have to take the boat out of the UAE waters once in a while to be in compliance.

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.
