    You have to get the CE mark done
    You have to pay import duty
    You have to pay VAT on the boat, shipping and import duty
    You have to sort all the 240v stuff

    And in the end your CE plate will make it clear it’s an import and detract from value.

    Plus a relative of mine did it as I did well, and they dropped his boat en route and antifouled over the damage. Water poured through a crack when we launched it. Never proved liability and we had to repair it.

    There is simply not enough headroom in the value of a relatively cheap old boat for this to be worth the risk.

    Is that singular, a make, or American boats in general?

    Prety broad statement but I can assure you there are some good american boats and some crap European boats. Pretty dumb statement to state all american boats are crap

    If so why do you need a merc engineer,
    Maybe you could buy 2 elec wheel chairs off eBay and use them
