Buying a boat in Mexico ?

Hello,

I am wondering about the logistics of purchasing a French Flagged boat in Mexico ?

No brokers are involved.

The French flagged boat has a Temporary Import Permit into Mexico.

The boat will be registered as a Canadian or European flagged vessel if the sale goes through.

Have you done anything like this before ?

Any pitfalls to be aware of ?

Thank you.

Not sure on the transfer. On the tip, the existing one must be cancelled by the original owner so you can get a new one. I would suggest talking to a broker in Mexico on how they do it, or look in latitude 38 magazine for a tip-savvy service worker. It’s a conversation that comes up frequently in the magazine.
