Florida Boat Registration Search
BoatWiki - Databases
The State of Florida provides an online boat registration search lookup feature on their website that may come as a surprise to many boaters. Although oriented toward vehicles, it also includes information about boats. This is because the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles comingles automobiles and boats within the same database system.
The Florida boat registration search screen can be accessed from WikiLinks. Instead of entering vehicle criteria, simply insert the equivalent boat title number and/or hull identification number.
The search will generate a report that shows basic information about the boat, its title and registration data, and any recorded liens. It also has a field related to salvage branding although this is in the early stage of implantation. The report does not, however, include the owner's name or address because of privacy restrictions. Any such data must be obtained by submitting a written request from the owner or certain privileged parties. Visit the WikiTags for additional information in this regard.
This is a excellent preliminary resource for boaters looking for boat information if Florida. Keep in mind, however, that such data is subject to change without notice and may contain errors, or omissions.
