We are a British couple currently boat shopping
One of the boats under consideration is an ex charter
boat, registered in Canada
(and I understand owned by a Canadian) it states that the boat is not for sale
in US waters. I presume that is because no sales tax has been paid anywhere on said boat?
Our intentions are to cruise
the (Caribbean + Eastern seaboard) 6 months on six months off or maybe a year at a time and leave my boat in Florida
where I have family
when not in use.
We really need somebody to clearly set out what our options are regarding registration
etc as we are currently driving around the state like mad things looking at all sorts of options.
We have read a few bits online but sadly are just struggling for time to research
this thoroughly at this moment.
If anybody can map out the options clearly we would be eternally grateful, obviously we would like to do this with the least impact on our budget
