Re: Permanant Resident

It should be straightforward but I think that the present owner will need to do it as it can’t be transferred to you. Keep in mind that, generally speaking, you cannot then take it to a foreign port or take a loan against it. Easiest is to put it in your wife’s name and put a POA in the ships papers giving you full authority to make any decisions and enter into any contracts that involve the boat.
