A vessel that must be registered also must have a certificate of title unless the vessel was:

  • Acquired by the owner before January 1, 1986 or...
  • Less than $3,000 in value when new or...
  • Home-built for personal use and not for resale.

Although there are exemptions from titling, you still may want to title your vessel. A title verifies ownership in case the vessel is stolen.

Registration and title application forms can be obtained from:

  • Any tax collector’s office
  • Many marine dealers, marinas, and bait shops
  • Any Bureau of Motor Vehicles License Branch
  • The Bureau of Motor Vehicles’ website
