|Registration Overview||The State of Nevada issues both registrations and titles for boats.
These are administered through the Department of Wildlife in Reno. This state does not
title or register outboard motors. Boat trailer
titles and registrations are required in Nevada.
|Marking Requirements||Nevada boat registration numbers begin with an "NV" 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. Coast Guard documented vessels may not
display the state registration numbers. However they must display the state
registration tabs, an owner designated vessel name, and a hailing port. An official
documentation number must also be affixed to a visible interior location in the hull
itself or an integral part of the hull.
|Registration Requirements||Unless otherwise exempted, boat registration
is required in Nevada on all motorized boats, including sailboats with
motors. Coast Guard documented vessels are also subject to
registration. A complete list of exemptions may be found by visiting the Department
of Wildlife website.
|Ownership and Liens||Nevada issues titles on all registered boats except for those
which are Coast Guard Documented. Nevada does not have provisions for bonded titles or conditional
registrations where sufficient proof of ownership can not be
otherwise provided. In these cases, it will be necessary to
obtain an award of ownership from a court of proper
