Re: Foreign Flagged Boat US Citizen buyer requirements
Vaguely, I think it is Title 46 of the USC that enumerates all the obligations and benefits of US vessel documentation. They've shrunk over the years.
And, your vessel will have to be equipped and operated to the safety standards and other regulations of the flag state. Your insurer may also have some questions or constraints.
