Re: Offshore Purchase in Mexico?
I've heard buying a boat in MX is really easy. This may be a case where time is limited, however, and you should bring in some local knowledge. How about waving a few hundred dollars under the nose of a broker to act as facilitator? Either officially, thru a brokerage like PV Yachts, or contact one of their sales agents privately and hire them to guide you thru the formalities. They do this every day & can possibly save you from a mistake. No reason to pay full commission -- just a reasonable hourly rate for their help in a private party sale.
ETA: You might also call or eMail the good folks at Latitude 38 & ask them for advice and references. They know the ins & outs of the US/Mexico boating scene & are great ambassadors for the sport.
