In Denmak and Sweden we don't have to register boats unless they are of a certain size. I think in Sweden the boat has to be longer than 12 meters and wider than 4 meters before it needs to be registred.
I guess the buyer only need a sales contract and the shipping paperwork for customs to prove it is his boat.
How you handle the title I am not sure. May be somebody else know what you need to do with the title.

Wire transfers can't be scammed....once their funds are gone (verified in your account) they can't be pulled back or reversed... to be extra safe, set up a seperate (new) account to have the funds wired into so the other party only has account name/number for the specific transaction, then move it to your good account after the funds come in. (this is to combat giving out a good acct # for a potential fraud)

I'm just curious about this, and have no intention to misdirect the thread.

What is involved in preperation of the boat for transport, in regards to HAZ/MAT items in the boat?? i.e. Fuels and fluids??
I'm sure fuel is completely drained, but what about other fluids, and MSDS's for these materials that are within the vessel?? Are these required by customs?
I deal with a lot of hazardous material Int'l shipments, but they are always air freight, and it get's sticky, and the paperwork is a bear.
What affect does this have to the boat shipment going by sea, I'm assuming, in a container, if any?

I don't want to scare anyone out of a transaction like this, it's just something I deal with in my work, and I'm curious how this would affect me shipping a piece of equipment overseas.

I sold a boat to Sweden, I agree, wire funds only to a new checking acct that you can close afterward. I got the money and it was 1-2 months before the boat was gone. The buyer did everything. It just was gone out of my garage one day.

Actually it happend me last week. I transfer money to the man in Mass.I Had the reciept from my bank its on his bank account. Two days later I visit the cash bar and find the money back again....Dont know how it could happen. I did the transfer agiain so now he have the bread.

One funny thing with you americans. When we send e-mails with say 10 Q's about the boat/engine you wana sell. You just answer 1 of them..... is the trick to send one question per e-mail?? HA HA HA HA!!
Tell me about this phenomenon Iam so curious.

Phazar454Mag, thanks for reply about this title thing.

Thanks
Mange
