Payments, Taxes and Shipping

Orders are paid in Euros, and as such your total cost will be affected by changes in the exchange rate with your home currency. You can get an idea by using the Google Currency Converter, or sites like Note that the rates reflected by these converters do not include any bank rates or fees that might be applied to your payment. These can often add up to %10 or more, depending on your bank.

Orders are processed and shipped from our facility in France. All orders in the EU will be subject to VAT. Taxes will not be applied to orders shipping out of the EU, however you should expect to pay duty fees, and any applicable sales taxes, based on your location.

If you are a cruiser or foreign national at your current location (a US sailor in Mexico, for example), research your ability to have shipments directed to your location. You may need a customs broker, or have the product ordered by/shipped to a local business in order for customs to proceed smoothly with minimal fees. Any fees assessed by customs officials, agents or the shipping company is outside the control, or responsibility of SeaCork.

Shipping fees are based on product weight, with a small handling fee added. If you are ordering product that is 12mm thick, note that the factory does not maintain significant stock levels in this thickness, so there may be a delay of up to 6 weeks in your order, to allow for an additional production run.
