Introduction


Nov 24, 2023 - Boat registration and title records in Iowa are maintained in a database administered by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Iowa boat registration search lookups and record copies are made available to owners and certain qualified parties. The following information will provide some insights on how to go about obtaining boat title, registration and historical data in Iowa.

Online Access


The State of Iowa does not provide online access to its boat title and registration records for owners or the general public.

Telephone Access


The Iowa DNR may confirm the presence of a boat hull identification number in the database system and verify a title or registration certificate in hand by telephone. However, it will not likely provide other detailed information. DNR contact information is available in WikiLinks.

Boat Record Request Form


Boat title, registration, lien and historical records in Iowa may be obtained by submitting a Record Request form to the DNR (WikiTags). See WikiLinks for DNR contact information.

Historical Records


Historical and archived boat registration records are available from the Iowa DNR in conjunction with the records access information provided in this page. However, boat records are not maintained indefinitely in the database system so you will need to contact the DNR (WikiLinks) in order to determine such limitations.

Bulk Records


Boat title and registration records in Iowa may be available as bulk downloads to certain qualified entities. Contact the DNR (WikiTags) for more information.

Nationwide System


Iowa participates in 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.

Conclusion


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