A Boat Bill of Sale Form is used to legally recognize the transfer of ownership of a used boat from one person to another. It is your responsibility to check with the proper authorities in your state to determine if this form is legally adequate for your purpose. Legal requirements vary from city to city, county to county, and state to state.
A boat bill of sale normally includes the name and address of the person transferring the boat, the name and address of the buyer, and a detailed description of the boat. Most states require the hull number of the boat if it has one. Most boats more than 40 years old do not have a hull number. In some cases the bill of sale is notarized, especially if required by law. When in doubt, have the form notarized.
The state boat bill of sale forms are available in both Microsoft Word and PDF. PDF is by far the more popular format.
