What we need from you

The order – The contents of the order (as precisely as possible) and your desired delivery date and time, along with at least 2 contact numbers.

• A copy of the Ships’ Papers clearly stating the vessel is commercially registered.
• A copy of the charter contract
• A copy of the crew list
• A “demande d’Avitaillement” or tax free application form,filled out and stamped by the captain of the yacht. (We will provide you with this form)
• TIME! Please allow at least 48 hours before the delivery of the goods. Our customs agent will present this information to the Customs Authorities who will prepare the necessary customs documents at their own speed. The customs may insist on being present during the delivery and have been known to board yachts at this time.

Unfortunately the law only allows tax free deliveries to be done Monday – Friday between 09h00 – 12h00 and 14h00 -17h00.

There will be a surcharge to cover the cost of our customs agent’s time.

It is forbidden to consume goods bought under tax free conditions alongside, and we cannot deliver tax free goods to static charters. It is also forbidden to disembark goods purchased under tax free conditions unless payment of the local taxes has been paid to the local authorities.

Tax on deliveries cannot be reclaimed retrospectively.
