It is standard procedure in most countries that if you have equipment delivered for your yacht whilst visiting a country in which your yacht is NOT registered (e.g. a US registered yacht located in Europe), or yachts visiting a "tax-haven" country (e.g. Gibraltar), the goods can be purchased for a “Yacht in Transit”.
This means that you can also purchase sails DUTY-FREE and TAX-FREE.
The sails will be shipped directly to the yacht addressed as “Yacht in Transit”, and the sails are then cleared by customs for delivery directly to the yacht and will accompnay the delivery on board to the owner or the owner's representative.
Owing to the large number of sails delivered worldwide from the sailloft, we have a close working relationship with DHL courier service, ensuring fast and reliable deliveries worldwide. The local DHL offices are very helpful and can be contacted locally to confirm details for importing as “Yacht in Transit”. In addition, DHL offers a “Track your Shipment” Internet Service so that one can follow the timing and path of one's sails en route to their delivery address once the sails have left the sailloft.
We offer SUPER DISCOUNT PRICES for our sails which are delivered to “Yachts in Transit”, becuase there are NO import duties and NO local VAT. Only the individual freight cost for the sail(s) from the sailloft, depending on the weight of the sail(s) and the location for delivery, are calculated separately. These prices do not include the freight for the sail(s) from the sailloft to the yacht, as this depends on the weight of the sails and the location for delivery. We quote these individual freight costs when you ask for a specific quote or order the sails. We quote these individual freight costs when you ask for a specific quote or order sails.
