Anybody done offshore delivery in california?

We're california residents (no condolences please) and are looking to buy a boat (a couple hundred thousand dollars..yikes) here in calif and take it to Oregon where a) our son lives b) we can cruise the northwest. Question is how to do the offshore delivery thing and not pay the calif. tax fees. I also have a buddy who is a CG certified captain chomping at the bit to bring it up the coast with me.

Can anyone list the steps?
thanks

So long as you're out of CA for 90 days, your good to go on the taxes. A reputable yacht broker can answer this for you. Try giving KKMI in Richmond a call. They should be able to clarify the details in a couple of minutes.

As I understand it, the California offshore delivery requirements have reverted back to the original 1 year (365 days continuous) law. Ensenada is no longer the “90 day Bay”. You do get a 30 day grace period to prep your boat before sending it offshore.

As it was explained to us by our broaker last year when we purchassed our boat from San Diego, the closing had to take place out side of Cal. waters, 3 miles out. We had to take delivery off shore and photograph the closing, the gps location, the days newspaper and the check. Which we did. The boat was then loaded onto a truck and shipped out. You will need proof the boat left cal. waters

Yep that was our exact experience except that we are not US citizens and we were then treated by customs and left the US two weeks later as a foreign vessel.

But apparently the process as Jim explains it is how it routinely works for everyone US citizen or not. I can't offer an opinion on that.

Latitude 38 has had several articles about that subject. Why not close the sale in oregon where there is no sales tax? Also Marine Title in Seattle can help you with closing details on a larger purchase such as yours. Also good for determining previous ownerships, liens on the vessel and legal transfer of vessel. be careful!
