Awesome, thanks for the quick reply. Aside from the obvious, what are the things to keep an eye out for when importing a boat, or even purchasing one for that matter??

Ralphs got the figure pretty bang on. (get my pm by the way?)

Freight you would have to check as it depends on the beam of the boat. I think 90 or 92" is the widest you can easily get in a container. Someone here will confirm that. The guys I (and a few others) used now do the loading and packing themselves so the prices may have changed a bit.

Freight say 2500 not including getting it to the port (which can be very expensive)
GST remember is 15% as at 1 October and gets charged on boat purchase + freight + customs charges (from memory).
Insurance is 300/500
Customs is 1100-1300
Reassembling the trailer ????

i found dealing with the sellers to be pretty hard. there are heaps of scams in the US and when you ring them from the other side of the world quite often its hard to get them to take you seriously. there was an aussie guy importing a nautique same time as me and the seller wouldnt give him his bank account for him to pay for it.
arranging shipping say from sacramento to los angeles can be hard and rather expensive (700 US when i was looking). further away id imagine would become nasty. Getting the boat checked can sometimes be hard if you dont know someone there due to logisitics etc and if you take a gamble it may be a dud.


there is a malibu for sale on here for that sort of money that looks very tidy and then you dont have the risk of getting a dud.

I think you mean sat on the ports? Mine was about 2 months and then it takes 14 days to get here, then up to 5 to get unloaded and processed through customs etc

It shouldnt sit on the ports for too long, I have had all my boats (bar one landed on christmas) in 3 to 5 days from landing to collection.

So I finally got to pick the boat up today which was great, but the bad news is they bent a prop blade. The rear trailer hoop has been pushed up into the blade during shipping. Maybe if I was to do it again I would get the prop removed just to be on the safe side.

BriSki props in Howick are very good at repairing props.

mines got a little tweak there as well but i couldnt put it down to the shippers as i didnt have any great pics of it. bad luck re the prop though, hope there is no shaft damage.

what boat did you import in the end?
