Registration Requirements

Both Federal and State law require that any pleasure vessel,
whether propelled wholly or in part by mechanical means, which
is operated on the waters of the state of New York, be registered
with the NYS Dept. of Motor Vehicles. Owners of vessels which
are documented exclusively for pleasure with the federal government and which operate principally within NYS, must also apply
to Motor Vehicles for a registration certificate and are required to
display validation stickers. The following vessels are exempt from
state registration requirements: vessels operating commercially
with either a U.S. or foreign document; vessels legally registered
in another state (up to 90 consecutive days maximum); lifeboats
(not including tenders and dinghies); competition race boats; and
non mechanically propelled vessels.

Certificate of Registration

The registration certificate is your proof of current registration.
It may also be your only proof
of ownership unless the vessel
is titled or documented. Vessel
operators must carry the vessel's
original certificate of registration
on board at all times. Likewise,
the documented vessel must
also carry its documentation at all
times when the vessel is in use.

Correct Display of Number

The registration number consists of the letters NY followed by
four numbers and two letters. A space, or a hyphen, the width of
a letter, must separate the first and last two letters from the four
middle numbers (NY 1234 AB). The numbers must be painted or
permanently attached to both sides of the vessel's bow. It should
read from left to right, be of block letters not less than three inches
in height, and of a color that contrasts with that of the hull. The
registration number should be the only number on the forward
half of the vessel and should be clearly visible and readable from
at least 100 feet during daylight hours. This number may not be
transferred to another vessel.
