Boating after BREXIT
Now that the UK has left the EU we have a clearer picture of how this will affect boating after BREXIT for both UK and EU citizens. We are already helping a number of customers to both buy and sell under these new conditions. If you would like us to help you, including advice on which market might be the best for your boat now or in the future, assistance with getting your boat back to the UK to sell, or how you may be able to buy a boat ex VAT and cruise Europe, contact us today!
We have also created a simple to follow Boating after Brexit guide, helping boat owners, buyers, and sellers, to get an initial idea of their boating situation, including VAT status*, might be.
