This form is also known as a Watercraft Bill of Sale, and both parties are obligated to sign the document to validate the transfer of ownership. The buyer will then use the bill of sale to register the boat in their name, and the seller can keep a copy for their records. A boat bill of sale contains each party’s contact information, the boat’s details, the purchase price, and the seller’s signature.
