Prices in our catalog and on our website are “Caribbean List Prices” based on our sticker price in St. Maarten which is a duty free port. They do not necessarily reflect our selling prices in every location, although in all locations we can indicate to you what logic leads us to the particular pricing we maintain. All locations within the Budget Marine Group are committed to giving you the best possible pricing. 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 US dollars.
