Your Vessel's Title
Here are some facts about titling your vessel.
- Every vessel over 21 feet in length that is required to have a Certificate of Number also must have a Certificate of Title. Federally documented vessels are exempt from this requirement.
- Any boater who owns a vessel without a title must apply to the DNR for a Certificate of Title before or at the same time application is made for a Certificate of Number.
- The DNR will not issue, transfer, or renew a Certificate of Number unless a Certificate of Title has been issued for that vessel.
- If your vessel requires titling, it is illegal to operate it unless you have a Certificate of Title for your vessel.
