Hi folks,

I am looking at purchasing a boat in the leeward islands. My lender requires verification the boat has gone through US Customs PRIOR to funding.

The seller's brokers says,"If you undertake to bring the boat back into US waters as soon as you have purchased her then it normally is okay.
We can do the documentation through a Florida based Documentation agent and the funds can be wired to their escrow. So once you have taken delivery of the vessel you can take it up to the USVI clear in, show them the documents."

Should I be hiring someone to help me with this transaction? If yes, whom? A broker?

This legal speak makes my head explode.
Which Leeward Island?

Are you buying through a broker.

If not how are you checking that you are getting clear title?
