Langkawi Registration

I have not yet gone through the process of registering a vessel in Langkawi but from my research it seems they do not ask for a title. What!?

I am new to foreign boat transactions. I am aware some US states do not require a title but it seems odd that Langkawi only requires foreign registration.

*1.* Application of Approved Name or Change of Name (if applicable)
*2.* Application to Register Yacht***
*3.* Declaration of Ownership.* ***This is just a Malaysian form*located here ***
*4.* Particulars of Yacht.****They seem to be referring to ownership in case of entity ownership***
One copy of other items required from either originals or copies:*
*5.* Copy of front page of passport.
*6.* Builder's Cerificate (only if a new construction).
*7.* Bill of Sale. (from when you bought the boat)
*8.* Copy of Certificate of Previous Registration (whether current or expired)**
*9.* Deletion Certificate (from country*where present registration was cancelled)*
10. Colour photograph of boat. (printout*of close-up*digital shot is okay)

Follow up question. If I purchase a boat in a foreign country, register it in Langkawi, then register in US to sell in US; how do I obtain a title for a previously untitled vessel? My brain is already fried just thinking about it!

I will be continuing my research into these matters with Langkawi and US DMV but any help from someone whose actually familiar is ALWAYS appreciated!
