What's with the 12 miles from shore business? That sounds interesting.

The boat is not VAT paid and not registered in the European Union and therefor temporarily imported in Europe.

Any buyer from within the EU legally has to pay the VAT when bought and brought into the country.

A buyer from outside the EU will need to have the boat temporarily imported as well, hence going offshore.

Basically, nobody wants to pay an unnecessary tax...
