Why A Maritime Attorney?


When buying a boat, it can be stressful and confusing. However, a yacht lawyer can help the transaction run smoothly. The seller should be aware of maritime laws and have everything set up to sell, however, this is not always the case. Which is why having a maritime attorney is helpful. Maritime attorneys should know what belongs on the title, what it looks like and if it is missing anything. Yacht transactions are hard to do in the first place, so have Irwin Law Firm on your side from the start, and the process will go much smoother than if you were on your own.


Irwin Law Firm may be able to get you a deal as well. Sales tax is an item that plays a role in yacht transactions.  If the boat is dropped off at a certain place and does not cross certain waters, which a maritime attorney can decide, you will be able to avoid paying tax. This is a big deal when making such a big purchase. This is one of the main reasons why having an attorney with you is key!


Wrapping the purchase up and switching over the title among other items is essential. It is important to ensure that all sure is signed properly by both parties. A maritime attorney will make sure that you have all the right documents and that the seller does not pull any last minute tricks. Yacht lawyers are trained to look out for these things under maritime law and help you obtain the best deal possible throughout your transaction.
