Buying boats from Guernsey

If I brought a boat from Guernsey and towed it back would I have to pay any form of import tax? Its a non runner hence I would'ne be able to drive it back.
Cheers
Dan

I cant remember who it was on here but someone drove their boat to the IOW on the trailer. You can always tow it back like that with another boat!

It is coming up to the end of summer, If you give them a ring and are flexible you may get a deal.
