NH does not have a sales/use tax, so you will not need to pay a NH tax.

Mass does nave a sales/use tax and will want to get 5% from you, if they can claim it.

As a non-resident you can legitimately avoid the Mass tax, but apparently only if you take "possession" outside of Mass. If the boat is in a yard, you would need to have it transported out of state before/ at the time of the purchase. Your dealer should be well aware of how to play this game...Mass residents with Florida homes do it at the Mass car dealers...they buy a car...then drive off in the new car with a form from the dealer, where the dealer certifies the dealer delivered the car all the way to Florida.
