SHIPPING INFO NEEDED:

  •  Overall Length, Width, Height.  Mast Removed and the same dimensions for the mast. The weight of the boat and the mast.
  • Origin Point
  • Destination:  Sheboygan, WI.
  • Cargo Insurance Value
  • Would suggest 40’ HC Container  in most cases – provided you have a way to load the boat into the container and ensure it is properly blocked and braced to prevent from rolling/tipping and obviously damage.
  • The Inside Dimensions of 40’ HC Container are:  474”x92”x102”  If their dimensions are great than those – we will need to ship BreakBulk and overall it is more difficult, the same details are required.

 

CUSTOMS TIPS:

In order for Customs to Clear the shipment – they can do a few things:

  • Have the shipment moved on an ATA Carnet (normally originated in Country of Origin) and makes Customs Clearance the simplest way to handle.  This is a Bond and acts as the US Entry Packet – well known in many countries (although not all – i.e. Brazil).
  • A Power of Attorney will be required by whomever is doing the Customs Clearance – this is a simple form, but, required legally for them to act as the Customs Broker.
  • There are more documents required, but, they depend on each individual importer and what they require and how they plan to ship their boat.  Air has their own requirements/Ocean has theirs.
