Where is it more profitable to buy a yacht: in Russia or abroad? 
When you decide to order a new yacht that embodies your dreams and meets all your needs, the question inevitably arises: order in Russia or search for options on the international market? Today we analyze the features of buying a yacht in Russia and abroad. 

Quality assurance and delivery time
Abroad: Large European shipyards do not sign contracts directly, but work only through dealers, whose average commission is 30-40%. The boat will have to wait several years due to the workload of production. Due to work through an intermediary, in the event of a delay in delivery, it will be difficult to achieve prompt response from the manufacturer. The basic guarantee of the fulfillment of all the terms and conditions is the reputation of the chosen shipyard. 

In Russia: Most shipyards, including us, work directly with customers. This allows you to offer the best price and fix in the contract the necessary conditions, delivery times and shipyard obligations in case of failure to meet these deadlines. Construction time varies depending on the shipyard and the season, for example, Pacifico Yachts is now taking orders for the supply of yachts by July 2019. 

Registration and registration
Abroad: After paying all import duties to Russia, the yacht rises on average by 40%. In addition, the requirements of international regulations differ from the requirements of the customs union, and often when registering in the GIMS problems arise. The most common is length. In Europe, the yacht is considered undersized up to 24 meters, and in Russia only up to 20. Therefore, if the boat is at least 21 meters, then it is already suitable only for temporary importation for 18 months, which must be regularly re-issued. 

In Russia: All yachts in Russia are initially built under the supervision of GIMS, while often the manufacturer actively helps with registration and receipt of a ship’s ticket. You just have to come at the appointed time and sign the necessary documents. State duty will cost only 1300 rubles.

If you want a yacht from a well-known brand, are willing to pay double the cost for import and agree to wait for several years, then the best choice is to order a yacht in Europe. But if the main thing for you is the nautical characteristics, comfort on board and the opportunity to use the yacht in the near season, then we recommend to pay attention to new yachts from the Russian manufacturer.
