What are the fees for FL boat registration? Florida

Florida Vessel Registration Fees

How long is your boat? That determines your boat registration fee, although some counties may impose additional minor fees.

  • Class A-1 (vessels fewer than 12' and all motorized canoes): $12.25
  • Class A-2 (12'-15'): $23
  • Class 1 (16'- 25'): $35.50
  • Class 2 (26' - 39'): $85
  • Class 3 (40' - 64'): $134.50
  • Class 4 (65' - 109'): $159.50
  • Class 5 (110' or longer): $196.50
You have 30 days from the date of sale to register your boat. Be sure to keep your sales receipt (with the sales date) on your vessel in the interim.

Keep in mind that not every watercraft needs to be registered; see the FL DHSMV site for details. Also, some boats require a title, too.

Florida Boat Registration Renewal

You can register your boat for one or two years. Just like with a vehicle registration, you must renew your boat registration on time. Renewal methods includes mail, online, and in person at your county treasurer's office.
