Montana Boat Titling & Registration

After purchasing a boat, the buyer will have 40 days to transfer ownership and register the vessel. Failing to register in time will result in a $10 late fee.[1] All sailboats that are 12 feet or longer and motorboats must be registered and titled with the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD).[2]

The following documents are required to register and title a boat:

  1. Application for Vessel Certificate of Title (Form MV1A)
  2. Boat Bill of Sale (Form MV24)[3]
  3. Certificate of Title (assigned to the buyer)[4]

After obtaining and completing the above documents, the owner must file them with a County Treasurer’s Office with payment for registration and titling fees.
