How do I complete boat registration in FL? Florida
Florida Vessel Registration ProcedureYou have 30 days from the time you purchased it to register your boat. During this period, be sure to keep a bill of sale showing the purchase date onboard your boat or vessel.
When you decide to register your watercraft, follow these steps:
- Visit the tax collector's office in the FL county where you live or where the vessel is located.
- Bring the Manufacturer's Statement of Origin (MSO) or its equivalent.
- Show your receipt indicating you paid the sales tax (if applicable).
- Pay the boat registration fees and any sales tax that's due. Registration fees vary widely according to the length of the boat.
Florida Vessel Registration RenewalsYou can opt for a registration that lasts one or two years. Either way, be sure to renew your boat registration on time. Just like with a vehicle registration, it's illegal to operate boats with an expired boat registration.
