Very different ball game.

And if you don't play the game correctly and the IRS declares your ownership to be a "sham corporation", the boat goes bye-bye along with many other assets until after you have gone to tax court.
hmmm bummer
I didnt know they had to be foreign OWNED

My boat is salvadorean flagged....does this mean I could not get even a temporary cruising permit if I wanted to go work in florida or someting and liveaboard with my family?

Im a us citizen...

man see thats why I said maybe its better to cut losses....

btw I knew plenty of megayachts foreign flagged by us owners...does this mean they all had foreign companies?

thanks

good luck on your decision op
