Hi Hellosailor,

Thank you for taking the time to answer.

The boat is a Valiant 40 from 1979, She carries the Dutch flag (The Netherlands) and is registered in The Netherlands. The title is in the name of the owner and his daughter. I have court papers empowering the daughter to sell the boat and she has given me the power of attorney to sell the boat for her (them). I run the paperwork by the Embassy of the Netherlands here in the Dominican Republic (I am Dutch too and I was contacted by my Embassy to see if I could and would help in this sad situation) and they oke'd the paperwork for me. So........ This is the story in short. There is no market in the D.R. for sailboats at all, the people who can afford a boat, they all want powerboats and buy them in The USA

Thanks again
