The Hull Identification Number (HIN) is a unique 12-digit number, assigned by the manufacturer, to vessels built after November, 1, 1972.

Hull Identification Numbers:

  • Distinguish one vessel from another.
  • Are engraved in the fiberglass or on a metal plate attached to the transom.
  • Are required when applying for Utah vessel registration.
  • Should be recorded by the owner and put in a place other than the vessel in case warranty problems arise or the vessel is lost or stolen.
