Does anyone have any info about getting a boat from the US to Bonaire? We thought maybe it would be best to ship it to Curacao or Aruba, then motor over from there.

Thanks Susan. Can you avoid the duty if you bring it in with the container of household goods after obtaining residency? What official source do you recommend for more info?

if your boat is near Lauderdale, you can ship it via Dockwise to Martinique and cruise slowly to Bonaire. i had great results when i shipped my boat from europe to the US with them.

Thanks John. That sounds like the most fun way for sure. I looked at Dockwise website and it seems geared for big yachts, yes? We have a 25' closed cabin fishing boat. How long did it take you to cruise from Martinique to Bonaire? How were the seas?

Don't make the mistake of thinking that Aruba and Curacao will be the same. If you pay a duty in Curacao, you don't have to pay it again in Bonaire. That isn't automatically true about Aruba, although I think it is in a some cases.

While Dockwise does shoot for the big yacht market, they will take what they have room for.
