Re: State Registration of Documented Vessels

Everyone pays the sales tax once for each boat they purchase on any new or used boat; whether or not the boat is documented or as the RO one moves to a different state. Registration requirements vary state to state, however, state jurisdiction prevails as to registration and or title if the state has titled vessels. One of course can choose to avoid paying the sales tax, but in the end the somebody is going to have to turn over a pound of flesh.
