I hope that this question doesn't sound dumb, but I haven't found the answer yet.
Let's say I take advantage of the devalued Euro and purchase
an Italian flagged boat in Italy
Obviously, I cannot begin the USCG documentation
process until the deal closes. From what I am reading here, it can take several weeks to several months to get US Documentation
Am I then stuck in the country where I purchase
the vessel while I await the documentation?
Is the Bill of Sale
sufficient to begin the delivery
to North America?
Thanks in advance for an answer from someone who's been there and done that?
