Boat Shipping FAQs
Here are answers to the most common questions we get asked about lauches and boats shipping services to New Zealand
Can you ship my trailer boat?
Yes – from the US, however many boat beams are wider than a container, so specialised handling is often required to fit boats and trailers into the container. Additional charges apply for the extra handling.
Can you insure my boat?
Yes – we can arrange individual marine insurance for your boat with our NZ-based broker.
I want to ship my launch to NZ, are specialised services required?
Yes – launches are too large to move in containers. Our experienced team can guide you through the best options to move your launch, based on the size and the location. We will manage all services (surveyors, cradle builders etc) for you. These are required when shipping large vessels.
I haven’t imported before, can FPS assist to arrange all clearances on arrival?
Yes – FPS has an in-house Customs Clearance team, specialising in all Border Clearances formalities required when importing a boat into NZ.
Do I need to pay Tax & Duty on arrival? Who to?
GST is applicable on all imported boats arriving into NZ at 15% of the cost of the vehicle, plus freight, plus insurance. Duty is applicable on some boats, please discuss with our team for details.
