Importing a boat or plane is similar to the procedures of importing a car.
Used cars are not permitted to enter Ecuador. New cars that cost over $80,000 are considered luxury items and will be taxes often for 100% of the estimated value. The same is applied to boats and planes.
If you can prove that the car, boat, or plane is for pure personal transportation purposes only you may not have to pay import taxes and fees. Best to check with a customs official BEFORE attempting this one.
