Re: Selling a boat in Florida

You can SELL the boat anywhere you please, any way you please. If the buyer wants to register it in Florida--he'll have to come up with whatever papers the florida dmv wants, to prove he bought it legally.

Apparently you have access to a computer, so you can check the requirements for your type of boat directly online with the florida dmv web site.

Keeping a copy of the bill of sale--with some ID from the buyer--is a very good idea, unless the boat is so old there is no HIN and no other way it can be traced back to you.
