As our boat search continues, we are seeing some interesting boats in Canada. The additional paperwork and uncertainty of importing is disincentive but that seems to be reflected in prices.
The ante is raised now that the EPA gets into the act separately regarding the engine:
Does anyone here have recent experience with buying a boat in Canada for import to the US? Does anyone know a customs broker in the northeast with a good yacht import track record?
We've decided to pass on Willard's. Much as we love the size, arrangement, and fuel economy; the issues owners report with blistering effecting the structural strength and need to chip out and replace concrete ballast are just too much for us.
Currently giving Albin 36's another look. If we can find one that has had the teak removed and the decks redone, we might be prepared to tackle the fuel tank replacement almost everyone on the market needs.
