Vessel Bill of Sale basics

If you're looking to buy or sell a boat, a Vessel Bill of Sale helps make the transaction official. Just as a more traditional car bill of sale would, a Vessel Bill of Sale helps to document the transaction of a watercraft in writing. Selling a watercraft is a big deal; you want to get warranties, odometer readings, and condition in writing. A Vessel Bill of Sale serves as the official receipt of the sale.

Use the Vessel Bill of Sale document if:

  • You've got a buyer for your boat or watercraft.
  • You plan to buy a boat from an individual rather than a dealer.

There's nothing as freeing as taking to the open sea. But first you have to get that Vessel Bill of Sale taken care of. If you're selling your boat make sure that as-is agreement is signed by both of you; after all, you don't want the buyer coming back claiming that there's something wrong with it. Or maybe you're buying a boat from a private party, you want something official that represents the sale, something with the seller's signature. You should come prepared with the right paperwork, a Vessel Bill of Sale protects the buyer and seller after the transaction.
