|Registration Overview||Colorado boat registrations are administered by the Parks and
Wildlife department in Littleton. Colorado is a registration only state and does not
issue boat titles. Titling and registration is not required in Colorado for outboard
boat motors. Boat trailers must be both registered and titled. Sales and use taxes
do apply for boats and are assessed by the Department of Revenue.
|Marking Requirements||Boat registration numbers in Colorado begin with an "CL" designation
which is followed by four numbers and
then two letters. These must be displayed on all non-documented boats along with
registration sticker tabs.
|Registration Requirements||Unless otherwise exempted, any power or sail boat must become
registered in Colorado. Exemptions include vessels which are registered in another
state for a visitation period not to exceed 90 days. Registration of U.S. documented
vessels is also required..
|Ownership and Liens||Colorado does not issue boat titles therefore security interests in
non-documented boats are recorded through Uniform Commercial Code filings. Tax liens are sometimes flagged in the state's registration
database, recorded as Uniform Commercial Code filings, shown on state revenue records,
or filed with a county clerk's office. There are no provisions for recording mechanic's
liens or other non-secured claims against registered boats which are not documented.
|Title Searches||Boat registration records in Colorado are maintained by the
Parks and Wildlife department. It does not facilitate online searches for the
general public but registration information may be obtained by submitting a boat
record request form. It is also reported that the Parks and Wildlife office will
provide telephone verifications on registration certificates
in hand. Boat security interests in non-documented boats can be found by searching the
state's Uniform Commercial Code records. This can be performed online or by
using a public record vendor.
