Requirements for vessel registration vary from state to state. In Kentucky, you must have a Kentucky Certificate of Registration and registration decals to legally operate your vessel on public waters. The only exceptions are:

  • Non-motorized vessels
  • Vessels registered in other states using Kentucky waters for 60 days or less
  • Vessels documented with the U.S. Coast Guard.
