    Registering a boat without a title

    Does anybody know how I would go about registering a small jet boat that was bought with only a bill of sale?? I don't think it is possible in New York State but wanted to see if anybody else has done this before.

    I really want this boat but the seller is telling me bill of sale only.

    there are not tittles on boats in ny state. they use transferable registrations. the seller should be able to go down and get a new registration and then sign it over to you.

    I wasn't sure but the NYS DMV website says you need a title-

    The last thing I want is a jet powered paper weight. lol

    it says registration/tittle. its worded like that becuase some states tittle boats and some just give out transferable registrations. ny does transferable registrations but my skis registered in va have tittles. if i was to re register them in ny id have to turn in the tittle.

    if its a ny state boat it should have a transferable registration you just take that and a bill of sale to the dmv and you will be set. if he lost the registration he has to go re register it and hill get a new one.

    In some states you can get around having neither a title or prior reg by saying it came from a private lake and was not registered.
