New York Boat Registration Search
BoatWiki - Databases
The boat title and registration database for New York is maintained by their Department of Motor Vehicles. Boat and vehicle data are commingled in the same database. Although somewhat limited, the agency does facilitate online searches for the general public. Complete record printouts may be obtained by an owner or otherwise qualified party upon submitting a boat record request form or an online request. It is also reported that the DMV will provide telephone verifications on information shown on boat title or registration certificates in hand.
The online database search lookup is available from WikiLinks. It can only be searched by a hull identification number. This can be entered in the "Find in this dataset" field in the right hand upper corner. Simply hit the enter button after inserting the hull number.
Data provided by the online search does not contain the owner's name, but does indicate the city in which located. In addition to some basic boat information, it will show the registration status.
Although the database lookup is limited in data provided, it will prove valuable in determining whether a hull number resides in the database and show the registration status. Complete title and registration data must be obtained by submitting a request form or online request.
