Re: NZ/UK national buying older yacht in the USA

Hello TQA,

Thank you for your very helpful response. I am amazed at the depth of knowledge there is on this site.

I have NZ and UK passports.

So you didn't have to leave US waters within the 30 days to then re-enter and then getting a longer stay cruising visa?

Do you know what the regulations are for departing US waters? I think there is some form you should get which is needed for the country you will be entering - like Mexico? I read on these pages of someone having their yacht impounded because they did not have this bit of paper when they entered Mexico. Are there differences between a US yacht departing and a foreign registered yacht departing?

Funny, my old yacht in the UK is up for sale and it is stated as having some osmosis yet it was a 1981 hull and I put two part epoxy below the water line. I contacted the broker and he put it down to having spent the last 7 years in fresh water.

Yes, I see some amazing deals in the US...
