US citizen ownership and registration for BVI yacht

I am a US citizen. I recently purchased a sail catamaran that is currently being refit in BVI. I plan to eventually place her in crewed charter based in BVI.

I have established an LLC in the US to own the boat. I was thinking about registering the boat in BVI because she will be based there, but I have been advised that BVI registration does not allow a US company to be owner.

How do most US citizens handle ownership and registration for BVI based yachts?

Thanks

Re: US citizen ownership and registration for BVI yacht

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, marvelousz.

Who can own a British Virgin Island Ship?

Citizens and Companies registered in the BVI

Other entities should seek registration advice from BVI law firms with one of the registrars, as there are usual ways how to achieve eligibility to register a boat in the BVI.
