One of the boats seems to be owned by several families that each use it for a couple of weeks over the summer. Sort of a floating water front vacation home in the States. It's probably a cost effective idea, however, their boat is far from Bristol condition. They treat it more like disposable. I hear its rather moldy and gross down below, although, it just looks unwaxed or properly maintained above. I will not be surprised, if they haven't even considered the legality. By the way, they haven't even launched yet this year.
The same way keeping RV's and vacation homes. They are not owned by individuals, but corporations.

State registered boats do not require a cruising permit regardless if they are owned by non-US citizens or not. There is no legal prohibition against foreign ownership of a state registered vessel.

US document vessels cannot be owned by any entity other than a US citizen or US corporation (often owned by foreigners).

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
