Updated May 31, 2022

An Oregon boat bill of sale is a legal document that provides a record of the transfer of ownership of a boat in the State of Oregon. The bill of sale will identify the buyer and the seller, supply a description of the boat changing hands, and describe the terms of the transaction. Depending on the circumstances of the ownership change, the document may be required to register, and will be helpful for tax purposes.

Signing Requirements – Only the seller is required to sign the document, which need not be notarized.

Registering a Boat

To operate in Oregon waters, all motor-powered boats must be titled and registered with the Oregon State Marine Board (OSMB). A buyer must begin the boat registration process within 30 days of purchase, or, if moving to the state of Oregon and bringing a boat registered in another state along, within 30 days of relocating. Boat registration endures for two years and, once registered, may be renewed online after creating a profile.

Where to Register

Initial titling and registration of boats may be done online, at a registered agent, or through the mail at the address listed on the registration form.
