|Boat Registration Overview||Guam issues registrations on all non-exempt boats operating
within their jurisdictions. These are administered by the Police Department in Sinajana.
Boat registration numbers in Guam begin with a "GU" 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||All non-exempt boats must be registered in Guam. Exemptions include those registered in another state not used in Guam for a period in excess of sixty consecutive days, from a country other than the United States provided that such vessel shall not be used on the waters of Guam for a period in excess of sixty consecutive days, a state or federal owned vessel used exclusively in the public service, vessel’s lifeboat if the boat is used sole for lifesaving purposes. Coast Guard documented vessels are not subject to registration. A complete list of requirements and exemptions can be found by visiting the Guam Police Department website.|
|Ownership and Liens||
Guam issues registration certificates on all boats operating within their
jurisdiction. Although not actually titles, these may serve as quasi-proof of ownership unless the
vessel is Coast Guard documented. Security interests in boats that are neither titled or
documented are therefore recorded through Uniform Commercial Code filings.
Boat registration records in Guam are maintained by the Police Department. This agency 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 registration office will
confirm hull identification numbers and provide
telephone verifications on registration certificates
