We have partnered with the international freight forwarder DSV Air and Sea along with the container shipping line ANL (CMA CGM in Europe and APL in North America) to offer a door to door shipping service to the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron in Brisbane for 40’ HC containers from a number of ports around the world.
ANL is providing an increased ‘free container utilisation period’ upon arrival in Brisbane of 21 days (standard is 7 days) for those competitors looking have their boats arrive shortly before the regatta and re-exported immediately after the conclusion of the regatta. This means is that between arrival and export you can potentially hold onto the container for up to 39 days and use the same one for re-export. The container can be held at the RQYS and be able to be used for storage etc during the event.
For further clarification or information please contact Kevin Molen at firstname.lastname@example.org
ANL are able to offer container shipping services from many parts of the world but listed below are some options & indicative prices (as at August 2017). Please note that international shipping rates are very fluid, are subject to global and domestic forces and prices for mid 2018 may be different (up or down) than those indicated below. These rates will be updated closer to the shipping period.

As imports into Australia will attract 10% goods and services tax and potentially customs duty it is suggested that all Etchells move using an ATA Carnet. These are generally available from your local Chamber of Commerce. This will also facilitate the entry of your boat back into your country of origin. Those requiring a temporary entry but not using a carnet will be required to deposit an amount equivalent to the applicable taxes to the Australian Government upon arrival and make a subsequent refund claim once the boat has been exported (this can be time consuming and expensive).
Anyone intending to permanently leave their boat in Australia will be to have a formal import clearance undertaken and make payment of any applicable taxes at the time of importation.
Australia has very strict
quarantine requirements and all competitors containers will be subject to an inspection by the Department of Quarantine. This means that all containers & contents must be free of any quarantine risk material.
The below table highlights the risks that Quarantine focus on.
|Live animals – vertebrates
||frogs, geckos, birds, rodents, reptiles
||hair, fur, skin, faeces, shell, blood, and fluids, feathers, honey, flesh, bone, horn

|Plant material – reproductive
||pollen, spores, flowers, fruit, vegetables
|Plant material – seeds
|Plant material – fresh
||fresh leaves, gum, stems, pods, roots, flowers
|Plant material – dry
||dried leaves, branches, roots, straw, wood

Particular risks for Etchells & trailers
- Packing a wet boat or in a wet environment
- Plant material (leaves etc.) within the hull and trailer boxes
- Excess grease on the trailer that could trap seeds etc.
- Spiders, webs and other insects within trailer frames
- Mud within tyre treads
- Water sitting in the hull/trailer
- Existing container residue – ensure container is swept clean prior to loading
- Dirt/soil on trailer and in container – suggest loading container from a sealed/dry surface and sweep after loading
- Non ISPM timber: Timber packing/supports/dunnage – all timber used within the container must be ISMP compliant (ISPM stamp visible on each piece) unless you fumigate the container prior to shipping in which case evidence of fumigation from an approved fumigator is required. http://www.agriculture.gov.au/import/goods/timber-packaging/ispm-15
Each competitor must go over their boat and trailer at the time of packing to eliminate all quarantine risks. Remedial treatment and associated activity in Australia is very expensive and time consuming.
