Click here to get started and our step-by-step checklist will guide you through the process.
Make sure your transfer paperwork is in order
Vehicle Transfer, Change of Ownership or Notice of Disposal’ forms may need to be completed (signed by both the buyer and seller) when a boat is sold. We also recommend you call your state authority and notify them that it's been sold. In some states, the responsibility lies with the seller to prepare and submit the transfer papers, while in others, it’s up to the buyer. Either way, it’s important that the seller keeps a copy of the form as a record of transfer and date of sale.

Prepare a receipt of sale
While this document is not legally binding, it’s a good way of keeping a record of the sale and all relevant details.
Notify your insurance and seaside assistance providers
Many sellers will buy a new boat during the selling process. Remember to call your insurance and seaside assistance companies and notify them of any changes.
Transfer your tollway tag or pass
Before getting into your new boat, make sure your tollway account has been transferred across.
Remove your ad from boatsales
Finally, once the sale is complete don’t forget to remove your ad from boatsales. You can find out more information on how to do this in your boatsales Account.
