Its a tax thing.

For example if the boat was sold in Florida it would encounter a state sales tax of 5% or whatever it is. 5% of $950,000 = $47,000 so its well worth it to drive the boat off shore 12 nms to close the deal.

PS Laws vary, tax rates vary, this was just generalisation :)
PPS if you bring a boat to Australia to sell you pay 15% of the value of the boat to the government BEFORE you are allowed to advertise it.
OK. Thanks. It sounds like they're forbidding anyone in the U.S. from buying it. If I want to pay the tax, that should be up to me, no?
