Feb 1, 2024 - Alaska boat registration and title records are maintained in a searchable database administered by the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Access to such data is available for owners, qualified parties and the general public. The following guidelines will provide some insights on how to lookup boat registration and title information or obtain current and historical records in the State of Alaska.

Online Access

Alaska offers an online registration access portal that is designed for boats and vehicles. Full access by owners can be obtained by submitting some personal information. Boat registration lookups are available for the general public through this same portal, but the data returned is somewhat limited. Owners can also implement boat registration renewals through the portal.

Telephone Access

The Alaska DMV may confirm the presence of a hull identification number in their system and verify a title or registration certificate in hand by telephone. However, it will not likely provide any further details, especially as related to ownership data. DMV contact information is available in WikiLinks.

Boat Record Request

Boat registration, title and historical records may be obtained from the Alaska DMV by submitting a request form (WikiLinks). However this is only available to owners, owner authorized and certain privileged parties as shown on the form. This is due to strict privacy restrictions (WikiLinks). DMV mailing information is also shown on the form.

Historical Records

Historical or archived boat registration records are available from the DMV by submitting a boat record request form (WikiTags). Such data is not, however, maintained indefinitely.

Bulk Records

Alaska boat registration records in bulk may be available to certain commercial enterprises. Contact the Division of Motor Vehicles (see WikiTags) for more information in this regard.

Nationwide System

Alaska subscribes to the Vessel Identification System (WikiTags) which is administered by the U.S. Coast Guard. This is a nationwide database wherein most states contribute boat registration data in real-time. Access is only available, however, to law enforcement agencies and other governmental institutions. Anyone concerned about a boat that may have been stolen, abandoned, involved in an incident or is being utilized for illicit activities in state jurisdictional areas should contact a local enforcement agency or boat registration office.


The information provided herein has been obtained from various sources and may be subject to change without notice. Any such concerns should be addressed directly with the respective government agency.
