I recently purchased a boat
and was not sure if I would be registering it in my home country (USA), the country I permanently live in (Taiwan) or elsewhere. I did a lot of research
and decided USA was my best bet for simplicity.
The owner and I filled out a Bill of Sale
he received from the broker in Philippines
(where we made the sale). We signed it with two witnesses present.
I have now unregistered the boat
from an EU country and am moving forward.
When submitting my paperwork to the USCG, it says I need a Bill of Sale
notarized with our signatures. Now, the owner is back in Europe
and I am in east Asia
Can I submit my current
Bill of Sale? I really don't want to spend thousands to fly across the world for a signature. Is there any other way? Must I use the US government's BoS?
