Thank you for the helpful insight so far. We've narrowed our search to a couple boats and are getting ready to offer on one of them.
I've seen a number of threads about purchasing
and then importing into the US, but haven't found anything about BVI
The top contender we like is a BVI
. We'd like to first do USCG documentation
and keep her in the carribean
for the next year or so until we can find a slip in the Great Lakes
-west coast of Michigan at which point we'll need to register in Michigan.
seems fairly straightforward, but despite my combination of search terms I haven't been able to find out how to deregister the boat
from the British virgin islands
Anyone out there have experience in this?
I have asked the broker
but I have not heard back yet. I'm not sure im asking the right things either though.
The boat is a former private charter
boat owned and operated by the skipper
and their partner.
