Boat Registration and Boat/Outboard Motor Title Instructions
Boat Titles (effective August 2009); Outboard Motor Titles (effective May 2011)
A title DOES NOT replace registration but is in addition to registration.
A title provides ownership, and is required to secure ownership interest when a boat or outboard motor is financed.
ALL REQUESTS FOR REGISTRATION/TITLE TRANSACTIONS REQUIRE A COMPLETED APPLICATION ALONG WITH
APPLICABLE DOCUMENTATION AS FOLLOWS. FAILURE TO SUPPLY ALL INFORMATION INCLUDING SIGNATURE OF OWNER
WILL RESULT IN DELAYED PROCESSING OR DENIAL OF YOUR APPLICATION.
ORIGINAL, NOTARIZED DOCUMENTATION THAT DEMONSTRATES THE CHAIN OF OWNERSHIP TO THE APPLICANT MUST BE
SUBMITTED FOR ALL BOATS, NEW AND USED.
New Application - Required for any boat that has never been registered in Louisiana
New from Dealer: Original Manufacturers Statement of Origin (“MSO”) AND copy of invoice from dealer. Proof of Louisiana state and local
taxes must be evident on the invoice, or the application must be accompanied by a completed original Tax Payment Certification Form (R-1331)
from LA Department of Revenue.
Boats from out of state: If boat was purchased from an individual who previously registered/titled the boat in another state, the applicant must
submit the title and registration along with a notarized bill of sale. If the boat was acquired in another state, previously titled or registered,
applicant must submit invoice from the dealer, or a notarized bill of sale, along with the title and/or registration and proof of ownership from
