Please especially note the need for two Carnets- An ATA one for the boat and a CPD one for the trailer. The CPD trailer Carnet will allow us to tow your boat from the port to the club inexpensively using our 4X4s. Otherwise you will need to hire a flat bed trailer truck to move the boat and trailer to the club and back this will cost around $3000 AUD.
Based on experience to date, you may find it beneficial for to employ the services of a freight forwarder in Europe to help with the process and paper work.
