Delivery: There are several services available to ensure the entire process and experience of ordering and delivery of your boat goes smoothly and as expected. Representatives are available to meet you at your destination when your boat arrives to ensure all is in order and to help you with unloading. If you prefer to have engines and assembly done locally assistance is available to locate an affordable service center to assist in the completion or operation of your new boat.
Assembly, Accessory and Engine Installation: When the engine(s) is installed prior to shipping, accessory installations will also be completed before the boat is shipped. Some parts may need to be removed for shipping and will need to be reinstalled at the destination.
Shipping: There are different ways to ship boats worldwide; some methods cost less than others but will require more assembly to compete. Some methods take longer than others. Some shipping is free. There are types and special offers that can run $28 per foot. Other shipping may cost more due to destination. Please read about shipping options on the link on the FAQ page. In all cases we strive to deliver your order quickly, safely, and at the lowest cost. below.
Boats as Kits: Many of our boats are shipped in kit form without engine. In some cases it may be easier and more practrical to install and engine locally for the following reasons. International engines do not carry any EPA emmisions certification and are not permitted to be sold in the U.S.A. or Europe. Some engines will require a C.E. mark for sales in European countries. U.S.A. engines nave parts that are only available in the U.S.A. The same goes for International and C.E. mark engines. Another reason for installing an engine locally is in some countries the tariff on iports will be higher for boats with engines than the boat without engines. In other cases such as Australia it may less to import a boat with engine from the U.S.A. and pay the tariff, rather than to buy the bioat locally. Each case is different and we have experience with import costs and details for many countries.
