Boats built in the US can become an “inspected vessel” with the CG. Boats built overseas cannot without, literally, an act of Congress. This came about from the Jones Act. Back in the early days of the US it was enacted to help US boatbuilders. If you are doing chartering with 6 or less the vessel doesn’t need to be inspected. More than 6 and it needs to be an inspected vessel. Although to try and retrofit a vessel to commercial specs is sometimes an almost impossible task. So realistically it doesn’t matter where the vessel was built unless you are planning on more than 6 passengers for hire.

If you are one there is no explanation necessary.
If you aren’t one, there is no explanation possible.
