Aug 16, 2023 - A conditional boat registration can be defined as one issued by a state registration agency and it entails certain limitations. This usually results when an applicant is unable to fully comply with the respective rules and regulations. It could be said that such condition is akin to a probationary period during which challenges can be made against the registration's viability.
Conditional boat registrations are available from some, but not all, state jurisdictions (visit WikiTags). Such registrations may be automatically converted into titles after a certain period of time if gone unchallenged. The U.S. Coast Guard does not offer such exceptions for documented vessels.
Those involved in boat purchase transactions with a conditional registration should become familiar with the conditions under which issued. Any concerns in this regard should be addressed with a qualified attorney.
