2004 Rinker 270 Fiesta Vee with very Low hours

love2cruiselove2cruise TorontoPosts: 35Member ✭✭
Hello,

With the addition of our very young son, the last 2 seasons of boating have not been as pleasurable as they could have been. He just doesn't sit still and have tried to climbed overboard on more than one occasions, so the Admiral said we need a larger more "contained" boa. Therfore, reluctantly our 2004 Rinker 270 with very low hours is up for sale. This would be a great deal for our American friends as asking price is in Canadian dollars so you'll be getting a 30% to 35% disocunt.

Thanks for reading.

    What is the process/likely issues with a U.S. citizen buying from a Canadian and importing the boat back to the U.S. I have a friend at work that has been looking for a boat like this but she is very skittish about considering buying across the boarder.

    I purchased a boat last August (2016) from Canada.

    The paperwork seems daunting at first, but in the end there is a simple import form requiring completion, then another form required for the engine. Once I got beyond this the actual "importing" of the boat was next task.

    You will need to either drive boat over water to a port of entry in the states, or trailer across the border. I chose to drive boat from Port Colbourne (bottom of Welland Canal that connects Lake O and Lake Erie) over to Buffalo. Called the Customs Border Patrol set up appt. and had them meet us there. You then hand them the forms; they board, inspect, and check things out that all VIN, Engine, Transom Assembly, etc. serial #'s match then you are on your way.

    While doing my research I learned there are brokers that will undertake these duties for a fee. I've heard anywhere from $500 up to $1,000+. I figured I could save that money and put it towards the transport as the boat was a Rinker 300 and oversized (no trailer was purchased with vessel).

    Hope that helps in your decision; Good Luck!

    ..... yeah - happens to me all the time. We take her to Aruba and Turks. She is snorkeling (8 years old) and will scuba in a pool this winter in Turks. We fly her first class. Some poor bugger is going to have to have a decent job to attract her gene pool LOL!

    LoL, that's amazing. I've been on one private jet ride in my life......and it was just kind of a "sure you want to come?" by one of the richie riches that I know.  It was a 1980's plane that looked no where near that!! The best part about it was no security on either side.  The actual ride was scary as heII, don't really want to do that again. Pilots were bouncing all over the place in their seat on landing, def. thought we were going to crash!  (It was 13,000 for a one way trip to FL) 

    One other thought - I prefer Jetblue "evenmorespace" seats all day long to American's 1st class seats..
