Features of customs clearance of yachts

Yachts from the USA

  • Buying a yacht in the USA is the best solution if you know a lot about boats and want to make the most profitable investment. The only caveat is that delivery across half the world takes time, but thanks to streamlined processes, we reduced the delivery time to 33 days.
  • Also, the advantage of this method is that the financial burden is spread over time, and you can make better use of cash flows.
  • It should be remembered that the costs on the “American side” (delivery to the port, auction fee, expedition, etc.) are taken into account when forming the customs value, and as a result – state duties.
  • Therefore, cooperating with VR GROUP CUSTOMS LOGISTICS, you receive not only high-quality service, but also cost optimization by reducing costs in the United States and at the Ukrainian border.

Yachts from any country in the world

  • It doesn’t matter to us from which country in the world your yacht arrives – we are always happy to help. We know the whole procedure thoroughly, prepare all the necessary documents in advance and take into account all possible situations.
  • Our specialists are experts in the field of defending customs value and have an appropriate reputation in government agencies.
  • Thanks to streamlined business processes, a clear understanding of the regulatory framework and a decade of experience, the process of customs clearance of a yacht will take a minimum of time and will not entail unforeseen costs.

Why shouldn't you underestimate the value of the vessel?

Sometimes, during customs clearance of a floating craft, there is atemptation to save money and underestimate its value in the declaration. Of course, at first glance, this has significant advantages in the form of minimizing customs duties, but if you delve into this issue, the risks may be too serious.

The customs service of Ukraine has a number of tools and techniques that allow you to calculate the real value of the vessel, and if it does not coincide with that indicated in the declaration, then a number of not very pleasant questions will arise. And by questions, in this case, we mean payments in favor of the state budget of Ukraine.

VR-GROUP CUSTOMS LOGISTICS has vast experience in defending faircustoms prices, which allows us to save our clients’ money.

Why you shouldn't use the services of cheap customs brokers?

A cheap customs broker is worse than a cheap dentist. If the story with the dentist will just hurt, then in the story with the broker it will hurt financially, and is also fraught with reputational losses in the eyes of the customs authorities.

Usually budget brokers are couriers who carry papers from office to office, and they absolutely do not care about the additional costs of their clients, optimization of supply routes and other details that may be significant.

In turn, customs brokers with a reputation as VR GROUP CUSTOMS LOGISTICS are always aimed at long-term cooperation, and therefore protect the interests of their clients in front of the regulatory services.

It is very important that your customs broker deserves your trust with his real actions.


Calculate financial burden

Together with VR GROUP CUSTOMS LOGISTICS, you will know exactly the amount of all payments, government duties and other costs associated with customs clearance of the yacht.

This will allow you to distribute your cash flow as efficiently as possible and avoid additional expenses (which could arise) that cannot be compensated for in the future.

Preparation of documents to the border

We do not sit idle while your yacht is sailing to Ukraine. We always work ahead of the curve, so we prepare in advance all the necessary documents in the country of export, and before the yacht arrives at the Ukrainian border, you will have everything ready.

The subtleties of customs clearance

We know absolutely all the subtleties of the yacht customs clearance process: where and in what form it is necessary to make payments, how to prepare documents, what technical documentation must be present.

When working with us, you do not need to study the entire regulatory framework, but only transfer responsibility for the entire process to us.

Delay is like a penalty

Delays in the customs clearance process entail decent fines, and in some cases even the confiscation of the boat.

We insure our clients against unnecessary financial risks and help to do everything on time.

How are the yacht’s customs payments calculated? How to calculate customs clearance of a yacht?
  1. The customs value of the yacht includes not only the cost of the floating craft itself, as many think, but also all the official costs that accompanied the yacht on the way to the Ukrainian border.
  2. Calculation of customs clearance of the yacht:
  • Formation of the customs value – (the cost of the yacht + the cost of delivery and other costs to the border).
  • Formation of the amount of customs payments – 10% of the customs value

Is a yacht inspection important?

Yes, it is.

Here the situation is the same as with a car from the USA.

If there is any damage on the yacht, the customs will take this into account.

Also, when examining it, it is important to understand what came with it or did not come?

Since the previous owner for his comfort could improve his “yacht, motorboat, boat” and add constructively suitable goods for comfort – a TV, microwave, etc., which is not provided by the manufacturer, as an option, and may lead to additional costs at customs.

Is a yacht broker and a yacht agent the same?

Unfortunately or fortunately, no.

A yacht agent is a specialist who is directly related to a company that sells, leases yachts, roughly speaking, it is a representative of a yacht dealer who provides services.

A yacht agent is the first instance where you will get to when renting a yacht.

The chain continuation follows the broker. It’s like a real estate broker. The broker’s task is to help the client find the “yacht, motorboat or boat” of his dreams so that the client does not have problems with documents. The broker does everything for you.

In the absence of a yacht broker, when you communicate with an agent – all legal aspects, selection of a yacht, technical inspection, etc., are carried out by you yourself, and it is not a fact that you will not have any problems, since this is your first experience. A yacht broker specializes in this business, and you definitely won’t lose money and time by contacting the specialists of our company. You can delegate all procedures for customs clearance of a yacht and preparation of a package of documents to our brokers.

The customs clearance procedure will take place on the territory of the Kyiv River Port.

Where is it more profitable to clear a yacht through customs?

A yacht can be cleared through customs at any customs office, but 90% of your success and saving time, nerves and finances while clearing a yacht depends on the expertise and efficiency of the customs broker.

If your customs broker has experience and can carry out customs clearance anywhere, then it is most profitable to do it near the waterways, that is, in the port. This way you will not be charged for delivery to the customs terminal.

It is more profitable to work with trusted customs brokers who have experience and expertise in defending customs value.
