I may bring it into NC for better sale tax advantage. I will talk to my accountant for sure. It is likely that the boat will be in the Company (LLC) name. Every time I use the boat, I will pay the fair market leasing rate to the LLC. The LLC will take the depreciation and loss of the boat if any. I will have at less six months to work this out.
When I order the boat, it will be in the U.S. Specs. The problem is I am not sure if I can find a local dealer that I will be happy with. In the past, I ordered all my cars through internet. Unless it is for warranty work, I don't take my cars to the dealer. I don't expect I will take my boat to the boat yard either.
I may be over spoken, most techs I have encountered over the last 35 years were not that bright. Many are lack of critical thinking skills to solve their problem at work. I hate to teach them how to think and still have to pay the dealer $125 an hour. A couple hrs in the internet or 30 min reading the technical manual, I usually can find the solution.
Yea, I agree with you. My limited experience with Bay Yacht Agency, I was not impressed so far. And I will treat them as such, get my best deal if I can, if not, I walk.
But don't get me wrong, I do appreciate good service, and willing to pay more. I enjoy dining at the 4 or 5 star restaurants because it is worth the money.
Taking European delivery has to make sense at the bottom line. Sailing her back to the States is just a bonus.
I know of at least one Caption on Sailnet did this. I hope he will chime in later with his experience.
