Dec 17, 2023 - Boat registration records in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) are maintained in a database administered by the Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR). Access to such information is available for the owner, certain authorized parties and general public. This summary will provide some insights on how to lookup boat registrations, titles or historical data and obtain record copies in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Online Access

The DPNR provides an online boat registration portal (WikiLinks) where owners may register, renew and search for existing records. The database is searchable by the registration number, hull identification number and USCG official number.

Telephone Access

The DPNR may confirm the presence of a boat hull identification number in its database system and verify a registration or title certificate in hand by telephone. However, it will not likely provide further details without a formal request. DPNR contact information is available in WikiLinks.

Boat Record Request Form

Boat registration and historical data may be obtained from the DPNR upon submission of a boat records request form (WikiLinks). DPNR contact information is available in WikiLinks.

Historical Records

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

Bulk Records

Boat registration records in the U.S. Virgin Isloands may be available as bulk downloads to certain qualified entities. Contact the DPNR (WikiLinks) for more information.

Nationwide System

The U.S. Virgin Islands 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.
