Dec 4, 2023 - Boat registration and title records in Massachusetts are maintained in a database administered by the Massachusetts Environmental Police (MEP). Access to the database is made available for boat owners and the general public. This summary will provide some insights on how to lookup and request boat registration or title information in the State of Massachusetts.

Online Access

Massachusetts does not offer an online boat registration or title search lookup service. However, boat record requests can be submitted online (WikiLinks). Boat owners may also access the database online for renewal purposes (WikiLinks).

Telephone Access

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

Boat Record Request Form

Boat registration, title and historical data in Massachusetts may be obtained by submitting a record request form. The MVP offers an online request dialog (WikiLinks) or a generic request form (WikiTags) can be mailed or emailed to the MEP. See WikiLinks for contact information.

Historical Records

Historical and archived boat registration or title  records are available from the Massachusetts MEP in conjunction with the records access information provided in this page. However, boat records are not maintained indefinitely.

Bulk Records

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

Nationwide System

The State of Massachusetts 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.
