Re: US Documentation for UK boat?

I had a U.K. boat and it was sold to the USA.

1. The vessel needs to be "de-flagged" in the U.K.
2. The vessel needs to be re-flagged to the USA.

This work was done by the broker but was quite easy. On my side I had a full Part I registration, meaning any liens on the boat would have been on the title. The other option with U.K. boats is the SSR and liens wouldn't show there. The de-flagging is easily done with a letter to the U.K. Ship's Registry.
Re-flagging in the USA required proof of de-flagging in the original country, then a notarized bill of sale and any other supporting documentation you may have (builder's certificate, tonnage survey, etc.).
PM me for more information if you are interested.
