Boat Shipping to Saudi Arabia
With a vast coastline and a variety of well-designed, well-established ports, Saudi Arabia is a great place in the world for people who love boating and fishing. Unfortunately, however, buying the right boat in Saudi Arabia can be tricky, so many people opt to buy them in the U.S. and to have them imported to Saudi Arabia instead. If you need help with shipping a boat to Saudi Arabia, Atlantic Pro has you covered. We handle virtually every aspect of the process, and we can even find or sell you a boat in the States and have it shipped on your behalf.
Boating and Fishing in Saudi Arabia
When people think of Saudi Arabia, fishing doesn't usually spring to mind. However, this massive country has a coastline of more than 1,500 miles, and it is home to a number of excellent ports. The main one, Jeddah Islamic Port, handles nearly 60 percent of the country's imports, so odds are that you will want your boat shipped there. Other ports include Dammam, King Abdullah Port and Ras al Ghar port. Excellent fishing is to be had in the Red Sea and other bodies of water throughout the year, and waters are filled with all kinds of marine fish, including eagle rays, barracuda, yellowfin tuna and queenfish.
Saudi Arabia Import Laws
Import laws for shipping a boat to Saudi Arabia are fairly minimal. Still, it is crucial to work with an experienced logistics and shipping firm in this instance, and Atlantic Pro is the name to trust. To ship your boat to Saudi Arabia, we will need you to provide us with the bill of lading, insurance documents, original invoice and the certificate of origin. Everything must be translated into Arabic for faster processing. Duty rates range from 0 to 50 percent, but 4.58 percent is the average rate. No sales tax is imposed.
Boat Shipping Options to Saudi Arabia
Atlantic Pro can save you up to 40 percent on shipping a boat to Saudi Arabia via ocean container shipping. Your vessel must be no larger than 28' by 8.6' to fit on one of the 40' HC containers. In the event that your boat is too large, we also offer flat-rack shipping, in which we design a custom frame to secure your boat, as well as crane and trailer roll-on shipping. Please note that these methods are more expensive than ocean container shipping.
Our Shipping Process
Your boat will be in good hands when you hire Atlantic Pro. Our shipping process revolves around securing your boat for the long journey to Saudi Arabia. We need you to pull together the documents and to make sure that they are properly completed. We will then drain the boat of fuel and fluids and remove and secure components like the windshield, the T-top, the bimini top and the battery. You can be certain that your vessel will arrive in Saudi Arabia in perfect condition--and everything will go off without a hitch.
