Purchasing a Yacht or Pleasure Boat in Florida?

Florida is a boating and yachting paradise.  For some, purchasing a yacht or pleasure boat to cruise the waters of Florida and the Bahamas and beyond is the culmination of a life long dream.  The purchase of a yacht or pleasure boat is an exciting prospect; however, some issues must be addressed to avoid costly pitfalls.  Make sure you work with a licensed yacht broker and a competent attorney to guide you through the purchase process. 


A licensed yacht broker will help you find the perfect yacht, and a competent attorney will assist you in finalizing the purchase and sale transaction.  When finalizing a yacht purchase, consult with your attorney regarding the purchase and sale agreement, sales and use tax implications, financing, corporate ownership structures, customs, flag state documentation, crew employment contracts, and other related matters.  The Law Office of Ryan S Shipp, PLLC has attorneys with practical yacht industry experience and can handle these matters for you with efficiency, giving you piece of mind with your new adventure.
