Re: Foreign Flagged Boat US Citizen buyer requirements

You would have to pay some dough and create a British corporation to own your boat, because you cannot transfer the ownership to yourself if you aren't a British citizen.

(Just went through this - bought a Brit-flagged boat, re-flagged to Canada - dunno about the US but no import duties payable until arrival in Canada, which is scheduled for ... never)
