Don't know about boats, but as I have said on a different thread you have to visit Guruk ( customs ) to get the correct answer, they are very friendly and will give you a quote there and then if you have all the details on what you want to import.

Thanks dvdjohn. My problem is that I dont even want to go looking at boats if the import is massive. I will call to the customs, ( I take it you mean at Kyrenia harbour? ) and ask as I have business there anyway.



Again thanks for your advice.

HI Stu, No you will have to go to the main customs in Nicosia, you will turn left at the end of the dual carriage way at the round about, follow the next dual carriage way to the next set of lights, straight on until till you see the Mercedes outlet on the left set back turn left Gumruk is 100mtr on the right, if you miss the turn there is a set of lights just before a garage on the left, turn left here and go to the end turn right and you are at the merc garage.

Hope this is of some help, don't forget you will need some sort of details for them to assess.

Depends where the boat is registered. If buying a new boat and registering it in the TRNC its expensive, that why many boats are registered in the UK or America

dvdjohn,



Again thanks. I think I went to that tax office when I brought my car over?. All the same, thanks for the detailed instructions.

andy2b123,



I am currently looking at america, and have a boat i am interested in but havent gone any further until I knew what I was up against.

Do you have any idea of the import taxes involved on a boat registered in the USA?



Regards,



Stu.

If you intend keeping it afloat the first thing is to secure a bearth and that will not be easy.

If it's registered in the USA it saves a great deal of money but you have to keep the American registration which costs. First of all you will need a bearth. I have a small fishing boat for sale with a bearth in Girne old Harbour, look on the "for sale page" for it.

Again,



Thanks for the info, all. I think I have a mooring sorted, not a berth. I will have to go to the tax office and check with them. I take it, this will be assessed much like cars using some sort of maritime Glass' Guide?
