Before boating, your boat must be properly registered and, if required, titled.

  • A boat title is similar to an auto title. Both provide proof of ownership. Like an auto title, boat titles are obtained from the previous owner or the boat dealer and then transferred at a county title office.
  • A boat requiring a title may not be registered until a title is issued in the new owner's name.
