You also need to reexamine your information as Vermont may not have a lower tax rate as you have assumed. There's is 6%. NY's is as low as 4% or as high as 8.75% depending on location. NY gives you credit for tax paid to another state. Vermont does not do so. NY has a cap on sales tax on a boat so they can compete with Florida. Vermont does not.
