boat titling

4 posts in this topic

I'm trying to purchase a used boat. the seller applied for duplicate titles. Last wednesday he received the title on the trailer and a registration card for the boat, but no boat title. My question is. In minnesota is the trailer the only thing titled? I need get this figured out soon as the loan terms expire soon. Thank you all.

Depending on the age of the boat, if it has a motor and is 16' or longer it is titled. I had a 16' 1983 Lund that only had a registration card, but my next boat a 16' 1992 Alumacraft was titled. Somewhere in those 9 years the DNR started issuing titles.

I have a 1985 Lund S-16 Delux that I just bought this January. The boat itself did not have a title, it only had a registration card, just like your situation. The trailer, however, did have a title, and I had that switch to my name. When you go to the DMV to switch the title, you need to bring the registration card for your boat, and get it registered in your name, and you will get issued a card just like the one you received for the boat. I think you will also have to change the #s and letters on the side of the boat.

To be 100% sure call the DNR Licensing Office and give them the hull number (or reg number) they will be able to lookup their records and be sure there is no title for the boat.
