Re: Foreign Flagged Boat US Citizen buyer requirements

[QUOTE=capta;2051560892]Last I tried, you cannot document a foreign manufactured vessel.

This is not correct. You can US document a foreign built vessel but it will be endorsed for recreational use only. If you want a Coastwise endorsement, then you need a Jones Act waiver. My vessel was built in France and there is very little on it that is from the US. The CG issued US documentation based on the original French document.
