I've been told and saw on this forum that California does not allow the Yamaha 275. Is there a way around this? Buy it out of state and bring it in? Will lakes in CA let me on the water with out of state tags?

Yes because of the supercharged engines. Same reason the AR192 and AR195 boats aren't sold there. I'd just move as you're probably better off :D

Agreed on moving out of California but sadly not an option... need to find a way to get the 275 into CA.

I know you can bring in used ones, but I'm not sure how old they have to be. Once you get the sticker you're good to go anywhere.

Register it in Az and be done. As long as the registration is up to date and the boat passes all the inspections you should be able to boat on any lake.

You need an address and unless you can provide az tax returns you have to pay out of state fees that are 10x ca fees. I have an az address, keep the boat in az, and choose to register in ca.

Actually you can register in Arizona as a non resident and pay a yearly fee to fish and wildlife which is only a few hundred bucks. Probably the same as California luxery tax would be. AR195 also is not sold in Ca.
