How can I transfer ownership of a vessel in Florida?

To transfer ownership of a documented vessel in Florida (or anywhere else in the country), utilize our “Transfer/Exchange” form.

If your vessel is State Titled, you can transfer ownership by contacting your State DMV or Registrar. That would be a vessel that is eligible for boat title transfer in Florida.

If you’re unsure if your vessel is documented, check if the name/hailing port is marked on the back (“transom”).

Should you have a title for your vessel, then it isn’t documented.

Documented vessels measure at least five net tons and are wholly owned by a citizen of the United States. If you would like to document your vessel with the USCG, use this form.
