Boat Ownership Entity
BoatWiki - Definitions
A boat ownership entity can be defined as an organization that has acquired existential rights allowing it to function as a singular individual. These would include corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships joint ventures, associations, and governmental agencies.
Entities are formed for numerous reasons such as shared ownerships, investments, tax considerations, personal liability limitations, and anonymity. These are creatures of the respective laws in those jurisdictions where formed.
Entity formation for boat ownership is extremely popular and for obvious reasons. However, this creates a heightened level of complexity with respect to registration, titling, and vessel documentation requirements. This is especially true where matters of citizenship come into play.
When it comes to boating transactions that involve legal entities, the parties may be well advised to obtain professional or legal assistance in addressing any such concerns.
