Course Outline

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.
