You can state register it and keep it in the U.S. but only 100% U.S. owned vessels can be CG registered.

If you wish it to be CG registered it has to be 100% U.S. owned. If it is owned by a corporation, that corporation must be 100% U.S. owned. IIRC certain fishing boats may have 25% non-US ownership.
