Holed in the USA now for sale in canada

I'm posting on behalf of a buddy who is searching for his first boat so I apologize in advance if I don't have answers to some of the questions that may come.

He's looking at a boat up here in Canada and the broker has been forthcoming in disclosing that the boat was caught in a hurricane is the states and required extensive hull repairs. A 2015 survey is available.

So the question is why is the boat up here for sale now. My friend thinks it may be similar to automobiles where an automobile that was written off/salvaged in the states can not be resold in the states so that's why it's here now.

So is anyone aware of any laws like that? I know most would recommend against buying the boat but if the repairs were well done and the price is right it may be worth it? Or are we crazy

Are the current owners Canadian? That would explain the situation.

No such restrictions I know of. Ours was damaged & holed in IVAN (Ft Lauderdale). Did not sink. You would be hard pressed to find any record. We trucked to Michigan & have been re-fitting/sailing for 8 years now. People sometimes buy a project/hurricane boat & haul to a convenient location for restoration. Also, many Canadians visit the states, in summer. Not out of the question to be caught & damaged.
