More South Korean residents are buying boats and yachts from the United States these days. The prices are reasonable, the quality standards are high and there are many types of boats to choose from. If you are buying or selling a boat and need to arrange shipping from the USA to South Korea, Atlantic Pro can help. We are a top USA boat export company with partners in South Korea.

South Korea Boat Shipping Process


When you complete a transaction, all required documentation must be signed. If you are a private buyer and are unsure about requirements, we can help. All forms and documentation must accompany the vessel through customs. We stow all tops, windshields or other removable parts and drain the boat's fluids to ensure that it passes inspection quickly if officials decide to inspect it when it goes through customs. 

South Korea Boat Import Laws


Exporting a boat to South Korea from the USA is similar to the processes used in most other countries, and the same international shipping laws apply. The boat must be stowed or transported properly. From declarations to insurance, there are many forms to include when sending the boat to South Korea. Our experts are familiar with each required form and know how to fill them out properly. South Korea has strict laws about importing chemical agents, which is why we make sure that each vessel is drained of all fluids and cleaned before sending it from the United States.

South Korea Boat Shipping Options


We can arrange land transport, sea transport or a combination of both if your boat is located further inland than a major port. Flat-rack transport is a good option for a larger vessel. The boat is placed on a frame and strapped to a rack for open transport. If you have a smaller vessel to ship overseas, it is better to use an ocean container. Most boats that are 28 feet in length or smaller will fit. This option can save you as much as 40 percent on shipping costs.

For large vessels being exported to South Korea, roll-on/roll-off and lift-on/lift-off are two options. Ro-ro involves transferring the vessel to the ship by rolling it on a trailer. The lo-lo process uses a crane to lift the boat on or off the ship. At Atlantic Pro, we ensure that a custom frame is built for your vessel and used for shipping. This reduces the risk of hull scratches and gouges as well as tipping or cracking. We also ensure that boats shipped outside of containers are covered with plastic or a protective soft cover.
