We are in a pickle.
We are co-owners of a USCG-documented vessel, registered in Massachusetts. It is a 30ft sailboat...a fixer upper. We are two different nationalities, he's an EU citizen, and I am a US citizen.
The current registration is expiring and we believe that a non-US citizen is not able to own a USCG-documented vessel. So we are looking to register in a state that will recognize both owners.
It seems like RI is a good option, and DE is possible if my partner forms a corporation and uses that to register.
Another possibility is to register the boat in another country altogether, where we could both retain ownership.
Thoughts on states or countries that smile upon international co-owners?
