If you have bought a boat in Broomfield, CO, our Aspen Gold Insurance Brokers are happy to provide good coverage at a great price. Before you get your insurance, Aspen Gold would like to guide you through the process of getting your boat prepared to have insurance.
Buying Your Boat in Colorado
If you just bought a boat for sale, trade, or title transfer, you will need to notify Colorado Parks and Wildlife within 50 days of the purchase. The same 15 days applies to if you have surrendered ownership of your boat or changed addresses.
Registration through Colorado Parks and Wildlife
Contact Colorado Parks and Wildlife and fill out the registration form. The fees will vary according to the type and size of your boat. You can turn it into any CPW office and complete the registration. Make sure that you bring one of the following documents:
- Bill of Sale
- Certificate of Ownership
- Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin
- Court document proving ownership
- Previous property assessment
- Certificate of inspection form performed by Colorado Parks and Wildlife
Your boat must be registered every year.
Additional Information about Colorado Boat Registration
If you own any types of non-motorized rafts, kayaks, or canoes, you are not required to register these. You do need to clearly mark your name and current address on the vessel. If your registration decals are lost, destroyed or stolen, you must report it within 15 days and get new ones. Some boats are considered too large for CPW to register and must be registered by the U.S. Coast Guard.
