Boat Registration in the United States

 

Like much of what we tackle, boat registrations are not everyone’s favorite subject, and come to think of it they may not be anyone’s favorite subject, but at least once every couple year’s boater owners across the world furiously search for what changes have come since they last braved their local government office.  We understand that the registration process is no fun, frequently changing and way too often unclear.  Seriously, we built this whole site around making boating easier, and we hope you find this portion helpful.

 

This page is built to help you understand and quickly come to terms with what you need to do to keep your boat’s registration current, and what it will take to get there.  Each page breaks down where you can get your boat registered, whether you can do it online, and the costs associated with various lengths, widths, sources of power and age. We included five of the top places to register boats in each state’s, but know that in most states you can register them in far more than five locations. We also include a long list of commonly asked questions, some show up for every state while others are more state specific. Additionally, we have done our best to tackle boat trailers as well, but please note that if you are not using a boat trailer the regulations in some states vary (ie there is an exception, exemption or additional requirements for trailers carrying or designed to carry vessels) so please continue on in your search for more information on them. Additionally, fishing licenses, which some view as registrations, are not covered in this page, though we hope to cover them at another point.

 

Finally, these pages are the result of a lot of time and research.  If you happen to find something that you think is wrong, something we should mention or something that you have a question about please reach out to our team.  [email protected] We may not respond within 30 minutes, but we do our best to respond as soon as we can.
