Re: Advice on permits from Maryland to Fl for a Brit.

And let's not forget, Florida will require a FLORIDA registration on the boat if it is there more than 90 days. On land or sea.

The OP might want to start burning some phone time and getting written advice from EACH state, both motor vehicle and tax department, that the boat will be in.

Then there's also the matter that he may need insurance, which will mean US domestic residency for a domestic registered boat. And many states won't register or title a boat unless you establish "residency" in that state, the terms of which vary by state and department.

Meanwhile the clock is ticking, if the sale was complete there are usually finite periods before taxes, etc. are due.

You might be mistaken, hellosailor.

Sales and Use Tax on Boats: Information for Owners and Purchasers

Foreign Flagged Vessels
Boats flying a foreign flag are exempt from Florida use tax if they have a current license to cruise issued by the U.S. Customs Service. Licenses to cruise are available only to boats flagged in countries that have a treaty with the United States. The boat will remain exempt as long as the provisions of the license to cruise are not violated.

Rick-
"You might be mistaken, hellosailor.
""Foreign Flagged Vessels..."
No, I was responding to his question about STATE registering the boat in MD before taking it out to FL.
Can't have any sort of state registration on a foreign flagged vessel. Having a foreign flag will exempt if from all that nonsense, if done in the timely manner, but then there's the cruising permit all the other nonsense that comes with it. With the UK flag, he has to ask "Mother may I?" every time the wind shifts [sic] so depending on taxes, state registration could appear attractive--at first glance.
