Export Yacht Sales

What is a hidden lien?

Called a maritime lien, if the owner of the yacht owes any money to a person who has performed work on the boat, provided any type of services or supplies to the yacht, and hasn't received payment for these services, they can make a claim against the yacht (a lien), rather than against the owner. The owner of the lien can bring a "in rem" proceeding against the vessel, causing it to be sold by federal marshal to satisfy the lien.
