Nov 28, 2023 - Boat registration records in Kansas are maintained in a database administered by the Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP). Searchable access to such data is made available for owners and the general public. This summary will provide some insights on how to obtain current and historical boat registration information in the State of Kansas.

Online Access

Kansas does not offer an online boat registration search portal for the general public. However, it does provide an online open record request form (WikiTags) that may be submitted for this purpose. The KDWP also provides an online owner registration portal (WikiTags) where owners may access their boat registration data, although only available by subscription.

Telephone Access

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

Boat Record Request Form

Boat registration and historical records in Kansas may be obtained by submitting an online open record request form to the KDWP (WikiLinks). A generic boat record request form may also be submitted by email or regular mail. See the WikiLinks for KDWP contact information.

Historical Records

Historical and archived boat registration records are available from the KDWP 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 KDWP (WikiLinks) in order to determine such limitations.

Bulk Records

Boat registration records in Kansas may be available as bulk downloads to certain qualified entities. Contact the KDWP (WikiLinks) for more information.

Nationwide System

Kansas 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.


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.
