New or used a boat purchase is taxable at the border 13 per cent on the purchase price.

I can only speak of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, as I have lived in all three. Boat registration is a one time thing, transferable from one owner to the next in all three provinces.. Can't remember what it costs but next to nothing. Boat trailer has a registration fee ( Manitoba and Saskatchewan) each year roughly $40 to $70. Been a while but Alberta was a one time trailer registration fee of around $50 I believe.

Ontario is HST at the border 13%.
RIV I think $80 and that includes the inspection of the trailer at Canadian Tire Store.
Trailers are $35 plates, boat registration is free and transferable.

I have done it all as far as payment in cash, money order and bank draft. Bank draft requires a clearance period, so cash works the best.

Buyer beware, keep your reciept for the payments at the border. The Canadian Gov is notifing the provinces that you have registered a private sale boat and even though you have the Feds the prov share, the prov come after you to collect again. Sometimes years later.

All the paper work is the Buyer's gig.
