Shipping & export

Shipping & export 7

Budget Marine retail stores are strategically located throughout the Caribbean.  If you’re on an island that does not have a store or agent, we can ship directly to you via ocean, air or express shipping.

We ship all over the Caribbean from our distribution center in St. Maarten.  Here are some details that you need to know:

Ocean

Popular methods and regular routes include:

M/V Karma – Anguilla, St. Kitts, Nevis, St. Thomas, Tortola, and Virgin Gorda.
M/V C Elizabeth – St. Lucia, Tortola, St. Vincent, Trinidad, Virgin Gorda.
M/V Mutty’s Pride – St. Eustatius, Saba
M/V Addie – Antigua, Dominica, St. Kitts, Nevis, Tortola

Note: Budget Marine St. Maarten cannot ship to individual customers in the territories of
Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Grenada, St.Kitts, St.Thomas or Trinidad. Customers on these islands should visit the Budget Marine store in that territory. Same goes for any new customers in Antigua that we don’t already have a service relationship with.

Air

Liat Quickpak can be used to most destinations throughout the Caribbean. AmeriJet also covers many Caribbean destinations and some cargo planes can carry larger items.

Express

Small, urgent orders can be reliably shipped via DHL, FedEx, Liat Quikpak or Winair Speedmail.
Note: airlines will not accept any hazardous goods such as paints, resins, glues, etc.

On Island Delivery

Arrangements can be made for on island delivery of bulk buys and heavy products for purchases that meet the minimum. Please ask the store in your location for details.

Damage In Transit

Budget Marine does not hold itself liable for damages occurred in transit therefore outgoing shipments must be carefully inspected by the recipient before accepting delivery to ensure that items are received in good condition. If items are received damaged a claim must be filed immediately with the respective shipping company. If it can be shown that the damage incurred is due to improper packing by Budget Marine we shall be willing to make good on this. Please note that any discrepancies or shortages in shipments must be reported to the issuing location within fourteen (14) days of receipt of the shipment. 

Prices

Prices in our catalog and on our website are “St.Maarten Offshore Prices” available for those yachts with a foreign yacht registration and clearance. They do not reflect our St.Maarten in-store price tag nor our selling prices in every location, as additional shipping costs as well as taxes and duties are applicable in most other locations. All locations within the Budget Marine Group are committed to giving you the best possible pricing in their respective location. To this extent we have many locations that maintain complicated duty free concessions. The cost of administering these facilities may however lead to variances from the Catalog pricing. All prices in our catalog are shown in USD.
