Marine Connection, located on the east coast of South Florida is one of the largest exporters of new and pre-owned U.S.A manufactured powerboats.
Marine Connection has been assisting export buyers worldwide for over twenty-five years. We have shipped over 10,000 boats, ranging from 13 ft to over 50 ft to destinations throughout the world. We are experts at providing the most value, safety, and security for your investment.
We handle the entire export process including cradles, shrink wrapping, trucking, CE certification, and ocean freight to your boat's final destination. Due to volume agreements with shipping companies, our freight rates are second to none.
Marine Connection offers several different shipping options, depending on where the boat is being shipped to. These options include:
- Road Transportation, Truck: For destinations within the continental Americas, including Canada and Mexico, we offer road transportation by truck. All Ocean Freight bound shipments are transported by truck from our facility to their port of origin.
- Ocean Freight, Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO): Available for either boats shipped on trailers or cradles to most worldwide destinations.
- Ocean Freight, inside Shipping Container: Depending on make and model, many boats can be shipped in standard 40' containers - saving on freight costs to most destinations. Up to 27' foot cabin cruisers and 35' sport boats can be loaded sideways safely on custom built cradles into containers while narrow-beam boats can be loaded straight-on.
Consult with one of our experienced Sales Associates to choose the best boat for your needs from our extensive inventory. Upon agreement to purchase, your deposit can be conveniently processed via the PayPal service or on a credit card over the phone with your Sales Associate.
Marine Connection will advise and arrange the appropriate and most cost effective method to meet your needs depending on the final destination of the boat (see available options under Shipping Methods).
If the boat is shipped RORO, Marine Connection recommends protecting your investment in transit with a full shrink wrap.
Do you need a trailer? Marine Connection can provide trailers configured to meet the destination country's regulations. If you ultimately plan to purchase a trailer, purchasing it for export will eliminate your cost for a cradle when shipping RORO. Your Sales Associate can provide details on trailers.
Upon preparation of the boat, and arranged shipping, payment in full will be made prior to releasing the boat for transport. Payment may be made via a bank wire transfer.
Shipping times will vary depending on the type of service chosen by the customer and the destination country. Marine Connection can offer services varying in transit time from three to ten weeks.
Upon release for transport all purchase and import documents will be forwarded to you. This includes shipment information to allow you to track your shipment.
