Ed - I love your boat and the only reason I can’t proceed is that I’m down in NJ and 1) don’t have the experience to move it here and 2) I think the fuel cost would be prohibitive. Also, do you know if there would be duty or taxes/fees for a Canadian flagged boat and if so, approx cost?

The previous owners were Professor emirates at McGill in Montrťal, The meaning of Cartouche is the scroll that the story of life is written. we loved it and kept the name, it also describes ammo Cartridge which is a stretch and not what she was named for

Sorry I haver no idea on what American Duty is to bring a boat for us up here from the states is we have to pay HST on the landed value of the vessel, and then with that reciept it can be Canadian Registered, as long as the survey says it complies to Canadian Saftey standards

Interesting question. If a US built boat is registered outside the US, does it require import duty when returning to US registry? Realize it can come back to US Registration before it actually enters US waters so you would just clear customs like normal. I don’t think it has to pay duty. Any other opinions?

First I am not an expert so take this with a grain of salt. I checked into a Tiara that was in Canada. It was built in the US. The broker told me no duty bringing it back into the US since it was built in then US. We didnít buy the boat so I donít have a concrete answer for this. That seemed reasonable but check it out for sure before buying.

Ed - my wife says we should consider this! I’ll take the rest of the conversation separately. But I’m way out of my depth (no pun intended) on getting to Erie Canal and following Hudson south. Can you include your services? Ha ha !

We did the Hudson River north and the Champlain canal as new boaters. We were a bit anxious about it, but had a great time and memorable trip.

It is easier than you think. Just pick the weather and donít have a schedule. The locks are intimidating at first but after a couple they are pretty easy and fun. Our dog loved the TSW locks since the lock master would give him treats.

I would say a freshwater boat is worth a premium and the delivery trip would be a great vacation, learning, cruise well eorth the fuel cost if you like the boat.
Many here have exoerience cruising that area and it a pleasant area.
If you are uncomfortable with canals & inland lakes, even Great Lakes how will you doo coastal cruising? What bettervwsy to learn... even if you take on some help or even a tesining Capt for a few days.
Think of it as Training $, Vacation $ and Delivery $ all rolled into one.
Happy to provide some lical knowledge / experience if desired.

Unfamiliar with canal and locks

I guess I didnít make it clear, I have my captains license and have been boating for sixty five years. Iíve recently had a 37í monohull sailboat, a 34í catamaran and a 32í power boat (all told 14 different boats over the years) and have navigated from Annapolis Md thru the Chesapeake going thru the Delaware Canal, then the Delaware Bay, the Cape May Canal and up the Atlantic navigating Barnegat Inlet and finally up Barnegat Bay to my home. I have done many ocean (coastal) cruises. What I havenít done is to take a brand new to me boat and take it on waters Iím not familiar with and transiting thru locks and the like. My wife is uncomfortable with the overall idea but game. But if I do wind up with this boat and Ed is willing to really show me the ropes so Iím familiar with everything, Iím sure it will be a lot of fun!

I would take you through some locks here and I would get you across the Lake to the start of the Canal

Good morning. The boat is stunning I purchased a Canadian boat (42’) about 10 years ago and had the owners help me bring it back to Cleveland. The process of “importing” a foreign vessel is reasonably straightforward and while there are agents who will assist in the process, it’s not necessary if you spend some time researching the steps involved. When I arrived in the US the boat stayed quarantined for a few days until the import duty was paid. My recollection is on a $170K USD oat the duty was about $2K. Fuel for an engine like this at 8-9 knots is negligible.

I should also say that if a boat was originally from the us then relocated to Canada and then relocated again to the Us I don’t know if a duty would be required. Just check the regs

No duty or import taxes to be paid on a US manufactured boat coming back to the US. A friend just did the same thing.
