Getting ready to purchase
a boat. I'm currently living in Ensenada, MX as a US Citizen. My mailing address is in Las Vegas, NV. I personally hate bureaucracy (filling out forms, jumping through hoops, paying taxes
etc) but realize they have bigger guns
and cages so you have to play the game
to some extent. I want to minimize this though, and make it as easy and inexpensive as possible.
Currently I see two options:
a boat in San Diego/maybe LA and then relocating it down to Mexico
. My questions on this are, in trying to avoid the deathtrap that is California
a. how quickly do I have to get the boat out of US waters to avoid California
b. Do you register the boat in Nevada or with CoastGuard or ?
c. Can I get the registration
paperwork done in the time I need to relocate the boat out of the US to avoid California State stuff?
(Ensenada, La Paz
, San Carlos
, Mazatlan). My questions are:
a: Most of the broker websites state they do the actual sale
in the US. I'm assuming in CA. Is this accurate assumption? And if so does this throw me into the California deathtrap or just a minor step?
b: How do you go about buying from a private citizen in Mexico (if that citizen is a US citizen)?
c: How do you go about buying from a private citizen in Mexico (if that citizen is a MX citizen)?
Am I missing any options?
Thanks in advance.
