No clue. But, a good boat broker ought to be able to help you get that information.

Where you will likely have issues will be France. From my understanding it is not easy to import boats to Europe. You will need to register it someplace out of the US or you will have real trouble in Cuba.

You will need valid boat papers. Where do you plan to register the boat? The US CG will not issue registrations to foreign nationals.

The USVI might be a solution.
