Manufacturer's Statement of Origin WikiTagsWikiShare


BoatWiki - Directory

Definition


A Manufacturer's Statement of Origin can be defined in boating terms as a certification issued by the respective manufacturer upon completion of the build process. It is viewed as an initial title document and will show the party to whom first transferred, which is typically a dealer or distributor. The certificate, also known as an "MSO", will provide particulars about the boat, including its hull identification number.

Context


A manufacturer's statement of origin is intended for usage in state level boat registrations and titling transactions. The USCG may accept this as proof of ownership for vessel documentation purposes, but it may not qualify as evidence of build. This requires an equivalent Coast Guard approved form known as the Builder's Certificate.

Conclusion


Blank forms for the Manufacturer's Statement of Origin and Builders Certificate are openly available for anyone in the public domain. Buyers should accordingly verify such issuance if there are any questions or concerns about their validity.
