Seeing as he asked the question in 2001 I suppose he is either enjoying the boat or sold it or running from the debt collectors.

1. This is an application form, get it from yourauthority in the state
2. Copy of theforeign registration isthe documentation of the previous owner. Get it from him.
3. Deletion certificate is the sellers responsibility. he has to get it after he sells the boat.

The sales of a boat is possible via a notary or the legal authorithies of the country. In each case this implies a clean title.

Call Linda Dunn at Marine Documentation, Inc. in Newport, RI. See http://www.yachtinsidersguide.com/li...umentation-inc

We hired her to help us buy a boat in Gibraltar in 1999 and she did the entire transaction for less than $1000. Buying a foreign boat in a foreign land is something you probably don’t want to do without expert help.

Re: US Documentation for UK boat?

I had a U.K. boat and it was sold to the USA.

1. The vessel needs to be "de-flagged" in the U.K.
2. The vessel needs to be re-flagged to the USA.

This work was done by the broker but was quite easy. On my side I had a full Part I registration, meaning any liens on the boat would have been on the title. The other option with U.K. boats is the SSR and liens wouldn't show there. The de-flagging is easily done with a letter to the U.K. Ship's Registry.
Re-flagging in the USA required proof of de-flagging in the original country, then a notarized bill of sale and any other supporting documentation you may have (builder's certificate, tonnage survey, etc.).
PM me for more information if you are interested.
