Much as we would like to help, we cannot arrange customs formalities at the load and discharge port. The law of most countries requires clearance be arranged by the current yacht owner or captain. But Sevenstar Yacht Transport will assist you whenever possible and direct you to the best locally available custom broker. Our high annual volume allows us to negotiate the very best possible rates for you.

Please make your arrangements as early as possible. Without proper clearance in place, your yacht cannot be loaded or discharged.

Documents required for customs clearance

  •     Certificate of registry
  •     Copy of passport
  •     Copy of commercial invoice (for VAT purposes)

Please contact our local port agent for the custom clearance, except in West Palm Beach where please contact:

Special customs requirement for St. Thomas US Virgin Islands
