Tag & Title Information - Vessels

New laws aimed at boating safety and protecting natural resources are in effect. Read more

All commercial and private vessels operated on the waters of the State of Florida must be registered and/or numbered with the following exceptions:

Registering And Titling A Vessel In Florida For The First Time

A vessel that is registered with another state may be used in Florida for no more than 90 days.

An out-of-state vessel owner who does not plan to become a permanent Florida resident but plans to operate a currently registered vessel in Florida waters for more than 90 days must obtain a temporary registration from the Tax Collector's office.

Not all states require a vessel to be titled, however, Florida does require a title. See the table below for a list of states which require vessel titles, which may be used to transfer to a Florida title and registration.

To permanently register a vessel in Florida, you must present the following information:

Change of Address

In order to maintain accurate records, and to help ensure that each registered owner receives a renewal notice, all changes of address, with the appropriate FL number(s) or the vessel identification number(s), must be reported to the Tax Collector’s Office within 30 days.

In compliance with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles a change of address request must be submitted in writing by US mail, to the appropriate mailing address, or in person at any of our Tax Collector's office locations.  Please use the address above to send all written requests.

Registration Address Change Form

An updated registration will be provided at a charge of $2.75.

Donations

Donations to the Manatee or Turtle Funds can be made for any amount. Registrants will receive an emblem for their vessel if a donation of $5.00 or more is made with initial registration or renewal. The donated funds are used by the Save the Manatee Fund & the Save the Turtle Fund to study and protect these Florida treasures.

Duplicate Titles

A duplicate title may be obtained by completing a HSMV 82101 Application for Duplicate or Lost in Transit/Reassignment for Motor Vehicle, Mobile Home or Vessel Title Certificate. It must be signed and submitted to the Tax Collector with the following fees:

NOTE: A copy of the applicant's Driver License must be attached.

If an outstanding lien exists, the lienholder must sign the application or attach a lien satisfaction.

A lost in transit title may be applied for within 180 days of issuance, free of charge.

Fast Title Service

The Fast Title service is available for an additional fee of $5.00. Visit any one of our five office locations for an original title, title transfer or duplicate title while you wait.  

If all documentation is correct, a Certificate of Title is produced in the office and is available upon conclusion of the transaction.

If the requester of the title is not the owner of the vehicle, the requester must have a Power of Attorney or an Authorization Affidavit from the vehicle owner.

Miscellaneous Title Applications and Transfers:

Contact the Tax Collector’s Office for information on miscellaneous title applications and transfers such as Death of Owner, Court Orders, Change of Name, Repossessions, Rebuilt Vessels, and Bankruptcy.

Power of Attorney form may be required.  Please note that it does require notarization.

New Vessels:

All new vessels must have a M.C.O. (Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin) or MSO (Manufacturer's Statement of Origin) which must be signed and notarized by a licensed dealer for transfer to buyer. The M.C.O. or M.S.O is attached to HSMV 82040 Application for Certificate of Title With/Without Registration or 82041, an application for Florida Title, which must be properly completed with owner’s complete name and Florida address, date of birth, sex, Driver license number, complete description of vessel and any lien to be recorded.
