BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A sub-agency in boating terms can be defined as a private enterprise that has been chartered by its respective state to administer boat titles and registrations. These are often referred to as licensing sub-agencies.

Meaning


State level governments will often employ privately owned entitles to act on their behalf in titling and registering boats and vehicles. Such agents are authorized to perform the same functions as those administered in regular state operated offices. Sub-agency fees are usually paid by the state and there is no extra cost for the consumer.

Context


Although stand-alone sub-agencies are common in the marine industry, they may vary depending on the jurisdiction. Those associated with new boat dealerships are also found in many locations and will process the title and registration paperwork for their own sales transactions. In some cases, however, they may impose an additional fee for performing this service.

Conclusion


The use of boat licensing sub-agencies may actually prove beneficial for some boaters. Their personnel are usually more attuned to complex boating issues when located near maritime centers.
