BoatWiki - Databases

Introduction


The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) protects consumers from fraud and unsafe vehicles and prevents stolen vehicles from being resold. It is a primary resource for state registration and law enforcement agencies in deterring and preventing title fraud and other crimes. Although designed for vehicles, the database may contain certain information about boats. It is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice and operated by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators.

Data


The NMVTIS database contains basic data about vehicle registrations in every state. This includes vehicles which have been damaged, salvaged, or stolen. There are also instances where boat particulars may be found. However, this will apply only to those jurisdictions that have integrated boats into their vehicle registration systems. In any event, the database does not contain vehicle or boat ownership information due to consumer privacy concerns.

Access


The NVMTIS database is accessible to the public through a number of approved and privately owned service providers. These companies charge a minimal fee for single lookups based on the respective vehicle or boat identification number. In most cases, they will offer a free preliminary search to see if such number resides in the database. Not all providers will, however, accept boat hull identification number formats. The ADD Title Check shown in the above WikiTags is one of the providers that will accommodate hull numbers.

Conclusion


Usage of the NMVTIS is somewhat of a tentative proposition when it comes to finding boat data. However, It only takes a minute to check it out and may well be worth such minimal effort.
