Which Boats Require Registration?
Requirements for vessel registration vary from state to state. In Nevada, you must have a Nevada Certificate of Number (registration) and validation decals to operate a vessel legally on Nevada’s public waters. The only exceptions are:
- Non-motorized vessels (sailboats without engines, canoes, kayaks, etc.)
- Vessels properly registered in another state and using Nevada waters for 90 or fewer consecutive days
- Ship’s lifeboats
