Guide to Bringing Your Boat to Mexico

Located in San Diego’s Kona Kai Resort and Marina, Kusler Yachts sits at the very doorstep of Mexico—and all that it has to offer. When it comes to sportfishing, yachting or cruising in Mexico, Kusler Yachts has considerable experience and expertise.

Expert Guidance

While Kusler Yachts makes a living in the brokerage space, our business is more accurately described as a consulting service that provides guidance in the boat ownership experience.

Guide to Bringing Your Boat to Mexico

The Kusler Yachts Guide to Bringing Your Boat to Mexico is full of tips and best practices. 

Our specialty involves working with clients—those buying their first vessel or upgrading to their 20th—to find the perfect boat for their needs.

Such expert guidance can be especially beneficial when it comes to boat ownership and operation in a foreign country. The prospect of taking a large, floating investment to Mexico can be a daunting and complicated affair.

It doesn’t have to be.

Kusler Yachts is the expert when it comes to boating in Mexico. In fact, Kusler has sold a boat that finished in the top three at one of the Bisbee’s fishing tournaments six years running!

The Baja

We understand Baja California—from remote bays, anchorages, and places to fuel to the legal and technical requirements of operating a boat in Mexico. We also have our finger squarely on the pulse of the boat market—used, new, custom, production, center console, sportfisher and motor yacht.

Applying this combined skillset allows Kusler Yachts to source and obtain the perfect boat for your vision of the Mexico experience.

Kusler’s expert team of brokers can provide advice to satisfy all of the technical and legal aspects of taking or keeping your boat in Mexico.

Yacht Services Include:

  • Cruising Permits and Customs Check-in

    if entering Mexico for a short term.

  • Vessel importation and registration

    if you plan to keep your boat in Mexico

  • The framework of tax and regulatory requirements

    that relate to your situation.

The team at Kusler Yachts has a wealth of experience on all of the things necessary to enjoy your boat and your Mexican experience.  By trusting Kusler Yachts to guide the purchase of a vessel, you make Kusler’s network your network.

When it comes to boat ownership in Mexico (whether for a short term or the long run), our expert team can provide perspective on such things as:

  1. Places to fuel and anchor up and down the Baja

    on the Pacific and Sea of Cortez up to Puerto Vallarta.

  2. Marinas that best serve your needs

    Some of our favorites include Marina San Jose, IGY Cabo San Lucas, Marina Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta and Costa Baja Resort in La Paz.

  3. A trusted network of service providers and technicians

    those located in Mexico and those who can service the area.

  4. Delivery services to and from Mexico

    to help you and your boat transit safely.

  5. Advice and perspective on residences

    and things to consider when choosing the location for you.

  6. Identifying which transactions can legally occur in Mexico

    and those reserved for offshore, territorial waters.

If cruising or fishing are central to your boat ownership plans in Mexico, Kusler’s team can work with you to find the perfect boat—one that suits your needs and accommodates your budget. When it comes to fishing in Mexico, we can help you consider the following:


Are you planning to fish any of the long-range destinations such as the Revillagigedo Islands? Would like to spend four or five days fishing Mag Bay, Alijos Rocks or Guadalupe Island?

For instance, Magdalena Bay is considered one of the best fishing destinations in the World. Nestled off the southwest coast of Mexico’s Baja peninsula, this area is an off-shore fishing paradise located just 600 nautical miles from San Diego. Magdalena Bay has become the hub for anglers targeting Marlin on the fly, boasting numbers that are unrivaled anywhere in the world. Let Kusler Yachts help coordinate the fishing trip of your dreams!


Your needs from a day boat will differ vastly from what you need to accommodate extended, liveaboard expeditions.

Marine Electronics packages

from Sea-keeper gyrostabilizers to Omni real-time, 360-degree sonars, advances in the past decade have revolutionized the world of marine electronics. Kusler’s team not only knows the options, but can source (and handle the logistics for) the hardware and installation of everything you need.

Do you plan to hire a captain?

Understanding your plans and budget for vessel maintenance and operation can be a critical component to finding the right boat for you.

If you choose to sell your boat in Mexico, Kusler Yachts can handle all aspects of the listing and transaction. If you wish to move up on a new boat—purchasing a vessel with Mexico registration and title, we are experienced in this aspect as well.

The Kusler Yachts’ Guide to Mag Bay on Your Own Boat shows how to full enjoy one of the best fisheries in the world.

When it comes to boating in Mexico—Kusler Yachts is your source.
