Out of State

Any advice on the pitfalls of purchasing a boat from another state? Clearly you have the greater expense of travelling to look at it. Then getting it home. Anything else? Who has done this at what were your experiences?

I did

Just check on your state's legal requirements to register/title your boat/trailer/motor and be sure you get all of the required documentation.

Maybe you can save yourself some travel time by taking advantage of your fellow sailnetters.

Hi,

Depending on where you live, going out of state may or may not be further than staying in state. Anyway I have bought boats both in and out of state. My current boat was purchased in Rhode Island. I live in NY. I did travel further than the previous boat I bought (the first boat was about 2 hours away, my current boat was an hour drive, 2 hour ferry and another hour drive).

The purchase went smoothly. I traveled to see the boat, then again for the survey, and finally for the closing. I sailed her home over two days. The boat was documented with the coast guard, so I have to transfer it to my name and then register it in NY state, which was easy because it was documented.

In state, out of state, doesn't seem to matter very much.

Good luck,
Barry

Check with your own state as to registration, but also check with BOTH states as to TAXES. You need to have whatever the selling state requires to make sure you don't need to pay sales tax there, and again, whatever your home state requires to make sure sales or use tax in your home state is covered.

Tax men have sticky fingers and long memories, so if you can get it in writing, or at least from a state web site, not just some bored clerk on a phone.
