All yachts clearing in and out of St Martin can now make use of a new, dedicated Customs computer system, where you do your own entry, print it out and then have it stamped by a Customs officer, or the owner of the establishment where the computer is located.
Budget Marine L’Ile Marine has one of those dedicated Customs computer systems. They have been offering this service since January of this year. Lomig Henry, manager of Budget Marine St.Martin reports: “This extra service offered by us is a welcome and convenient alternative to going to the official customs office. We are getting very positive results from both the private yachts and charter vessels that can now make use of this service. The service is not only convenient but also free of charge although yachtsmen are welcome to donate to the SNSM (Sea Rescue).”
Located just outside of the Sandy Ground Bridge, Budget Marine St. Martin is an ideal location to do your custom clearing. A dinghy dock in front of the building makes it easy to visit. Opening hours of Budget Marine St. Martin are Mon-Fri 8:00 am to 12:00 noon and 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Saturdays they are open from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon.
