Buying boats in Costa Rica?

What’s up everyone! I was hoping to find out some more info about Costa Rica. I booked airline tickets with American Airlines and didn’t even think about looking into flying a boat down for my trip. Of course American won’t accept kayaks or even surf boards over 62”, so I’m screwed for flying down a creek boat. I was wondering if any knows someone that would be willing to sell 2 boats to my friend and me while we’re in Costa Rica or if anyone has ever shipped a boat with UPS or something like that. If you have any good ideas I’d love to hear about some other options. Thanks a ton.

Cheers, Alex

How long will you be here? When are you planning on travelling?

Have you considered renting boats?

We have a CFS, Nomad, H3, Mystic, and SCUD in our rental fleet right now, and offer a discount for long-term rentals. We might be interested in selling two of them depending on the time frame.

Let me know if I can be of asssistance. [email protected]


p.s. - If you freight the boats (i.e. do not bring them on the plane with you) it is generally thought to be an absolute nightmare to get them out of customs. If you are fluent in spanish, have a few days, and are willing to pay a $300 U.S. tariff it can be done.

call me or email me and I can give you some phone numbers and contacts of people who would be able to help you out - ticos and good boating friends. I left a boat down there for a friend's girlfriend to use to learn so I can call in a favor. [email protected] 970 291 1114
