Boat Shipping to Chile
The long, narrow country of Chile has an extensive coastline along the Pacific Ocean. Not surprisingly, then, boating and shipping are major activities in this South American country, and owning a boat there is wonderful. If you have a boat in the U.S. that you want to ship to Chile, or if you need to buy one in the States and have it shipped there, Atlantic Pro is here to help. We are experienced logistics and shipping experts, and we are also a full-service purchasing company. Whatever your needs may be, we have you covered.
Fishing and Boating in Chile
With 2,683 miles of coastline, Chile has all kinds of options for people who enjoy fishing and boating. The country boasts dozens of well-run, well-established ports, including some that are strictly for commercial shipping and others that welcome all vessels. From the Port of Arica in the north, which boasts soaring sand dunes and excellent surfing, to the port of Valparaiso on the central coast, Chile is a unique and exciting place to own a boat. Its ocean waters are rife with all kinds of marine fish, including cod and corvina, so there is never a dull moment.
Chilean Import Laws
By hiring Atlantic Pro, you don't have to concern yourself with the intricacies of Chilean import laws. Still, it pays to have a basic understanding. We will need you to provide us with the certificate of origin, bill of lading, invoice and freight insurance documents. You will be responsible for paying duty fees, which vary but average around 6 percent. You must also pay VAT. The standard rate is 19 percent, but it can vary depending on the sum of the cost, insurance and freight value of the vessel.
Our Shipping Process
In addition to handling the logistics of shipping your boat to Chile, our team will do what it takes to properly secure it for safe transport. We remove and store components like windshields, batteries, T-tops and bimini tops to keep them safe and secure from point A to point B. Our team will also drain the boat of fuel and fluids for safer and easier transport. We will inform you of the exact documents that you must provide, and it is crucial to ensure that they are all accounted for and properly filled out.
Boat Shipping Options to Chile
Like most boat owners, you are probably looking for the easiest and most affordable way to ship a boat to Chile. As long as it measures less than 28' by 8.6', it should qualify for ocean container shipping. This means that it will be placed in a 40' HC container. Atlantic Pro can save you up to 40 percent with this option. Otherwise, we also offer trailer roll-on and crane shipping, which tend to be pricier. We also offer flat-rack shipping, which involves designed a custom frame to secure the boat for safe transport. Our team will work with you to identify the best option to suit your needs.
