Regulations for a Foreign-Purchased Vessel

Hello all. I have a situation that I hope you all can help me with. I have recently purchased a sailboat (39' Allied Mistress) in the Dominican Republic. My questions concerning this purchase are:

1) Does the vessel need to be registered in a US state prior to sailing it from the DR to the US?

2) Will the bill of sale meet the requirements for Customs and Border Patrol entry?

I plan on purchasing my Custom User fee next month (I plan on sailing from Luperon Bay to the Cacios this coming May).
