This division acts as an agent for the State of Florida, registering vessels and collecting registration fees for vessels which are both motorized and "domiciled" in Florida. Vessels which are used for transportation on navigable Florida waters must be registered and renewed each year by midnight of the owner's birthday (or by June 30 for companies). You will be issued a permanent Florida registration number and a validation decal each year.

For a first-time vessel registration, you will need to present proof of ownership and apply for a Florida title when applicable. Individuals can present proof of application on a special form that the Division provides. You will receive reminder notices in the mail each year at the owner's last reported address. The cost of registration is based on the length of the vessel.

You can renew your vessel registration in any of the following ways:

  • At the Broward County Records, Taxes, and Treasury Division's Auto Tag Agency or authorized private agencies
