    Quite possibly exempt, if in use prior to 1.1.85 and in the EU on the last day of 1992.

    For details and evidence required, see Section 4.2 of our old friend VAT notice No8: https://www.gov.uk/government/public...nd-from-the-uk

    It may be that the boat's whereabouts on Brexit day (whenever that might be) will determine its future VAT status: if in EU27, then it will be regarded as union goods.

    P.S. Sean: evidence for whereabouts on 31.12.92 might seem rather esoteric, but if the owner at the time was conscientious, he would likely have made a point of preserving it.

    Says built '84, Vic, so not necessarily in use then. In practice, the date it was first sold is probably the clincher.
