To calculate the total cost of your boat purchase for Florida Boat Purchases made through GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES, simply add the purchase price of your boat, Six Percent (6%) Florida State Sales Tax, Florida Surtax (if any) normally ranging from $25.00 to $75.00 depending on the county you reside in Florida, and our flat rate $295.00 Administration Fee for the preparation of all of your necessary closing documents. Adding these figures together will give you your grand total boat purchase amount. All transactions for boat purchases with GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES must be done by Bank Wire Transfer only including your initial deposit.

EXAMPLE: Boat: $100,000.00 Sales Tax: $6,000.00 Surtax: $50.00 Admin Fee: $295.00 TOTAL BOAT PURCHASE COST: $106,345.00

At closing, The PHOTOSTIX® Corporation d/b/a GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES will provide you with the following; Notarized USCG Bill of Sale from the Owner of the Vessel showing you as the Purchaser; Notarized Warranty of Title from the Owner of the Vessel to you; Dealer Signed DR41C Sales Tax Statement (that shows that you paid and GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES collected all of the necessary Florida Sales Tax(s) for your boat purchase); Fully Executed Vessel Title (or Copy of the USCG Vessel Document attached to the Notarized USCG Bill of Sale if the vessel is USCG Documented Vessel instead of a Florida Titled Vessel); Fully executed (by GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES & BUYER) Detailed BUYER'S CLOSING STATEMENT; and Detailed Instruction Sheet for your getting the boat re-titled and re-registered into your name at your local DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles). Consult your local DMV for their exact re-registration fees as most charge by the length of the vessel. For example, an 18' to 25' boat may be around $40.00 whereas a 26' to a 39' boat might be around $105.00 for re-registration on Florida Boats being re-registered in the State of Florida.

For Out of State Boat Purchases whereas the vessel is not located in the State of Florida; the Buyer does not reside or own any property in the State of Florida; the Buyer does not own (or is a part of) a business in the State of Florida; The vessel is not Titled, Registered or Documented in the State of Florida, GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES will not collect Sales Tax for that vessel purchase. The Buyer will be required to sign a Sales Tax Affidavit at closing acknowledging that he/she will be responsible for full payment of any and all applicable Sales Tax(s) due (if any) which he/she would be required to pay to the State, County, or Country where the vessel will reside upon re-titling, re-registering and/or re-documenting the vessel.

Note that for the sale of boats that are USCG Documented Vessels, we will connect you with a professional USCG Documentation Service and they will first give you a quotation and (if you hire them) charge you directly for their Re-Documentation Services. Although their USCG Re-Documentation Service Fees normally range from around $400.00 to $600.00 we highly suggest that you hire a professional to get the Re-Documentation process done properly! GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES will work directly with your USCG Documentation Agent to help make sure every thing is done accurately and in a timely manner.

For Boat Purchases that require a Loan Payoff in order to get Clear Florida Title on the vessel, GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES does not charge extra for this service on boats that are purchased through GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES.
