Hello everyone , my first post on this site.
I am a Australian in Florida
at the moment (Feb 2019 ) , and I have put a offer on a 30ft Hunter
My intentions are to take it to the Bahamas
until late May 2019 then store it on the hard
either in the Bahamas
, or back in Florida
I will be paying around $25000 USD for the yacht. I plan to sell it again one day(2-3 years time ) in the USA or Caribbean
My question is where should I register it , if I register it in Florida I will pay the 6% sales tax , not a big deal I guess , or should I register it in Australia
Will there be any problems sailing a USA registered yacht as a Australian?
Thanks for any replies , I realise this question has probably been asked before , I have been searching the forums
, any information would be greatly appreciated.
