Dec 12, 2023 - Boat registration and title records in Oregon are maintained in a database administered by the Oregon Marine Board (OMB). Access to such information is available for the owner, qualified parties and general public. This summary will provide some insights on how to lookup or request boat registration, title, operator and historical records in the State of Oregon.

Online Access

Access to Oregon boat registration, title, and operator records (WikiLinks) is available online to the general public. The service is free of charge and offers multiple search mode options which are surprisingly comprehensive. These include a lookup by boat, owner or operator and a unique option for floating properties. The searches can be initiated by various criteria including the registration number (ID), hull number and certain specifications. Owners and operators can be searched by name, city and state. Floating properties can be accessed by the owner's name, marina name, or location. Although mailing addresses are redacted due to privacy restrictions, the reports offer a considerable amount of boat registration, title and other statistical information.

Boat owners in Oregon also have full online access to their boat registration, title, renewal and other boating information (WikiTags). However, this involves the establishment of an account.

Telephone Access

The Oregon OMB 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 further details. OMB contact information is available in WikiLinks.

Boat Record Request Form

A boat records request form which can be submitted to the Oregon OMB is available in WikiLinks. OMB contact and mailing information can also be found in WikiLinks

Historical Records

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

Bulk Records

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

Nationwide System

The State of Oregon 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.
