Question Newbie with question.

Hello everyone. I'm a new member. Might as well post my question here.

I am looking to buy a used sailboat (17 ft. - 3 years old out of state). This will be my first time to buy a used vehicle.

How this thing works? Registration of boat? Trailer? Insurance?

How do you pay?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Newbie with question.

Welcome to SailNet!

Buying a boat is very similar to buying a car. Get a reciept for the boat, and get a seperate reciept for the trailer. In the US the trailer will need to be registered, and if the boat has a motor it will need to be registered too. I have no idea what the laws are in Singapore, but I would start with whatever bureaucracy handles car registrations. In the states we call this the RMV or DMV.
