A Wyoming boat bill of sale is used to document the sale of watercraft from a private seller to a buyer. The form is required for private boat sales if the vessel has never been titled in the state. The form must be signed by the buyer and the seller, and witnessed by a notary public. Although the buyer isn’t required to have a bill of sale to register the vessel, they may need a notarized copy to title the boat in their name, even if the boat was previously titled. It is recommended that both parties keep a copy of the bill of sale for their personal records to protect themselves from future liability.
Wyoming Boat Registration
In Wyoming, all boats that have an inboard or outboard motor (including sailboats) must have valid watercraft registration, as well as an Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) decal displayed to the hull. Watercraft registration with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) can be completed by following the steps below.
- Obtain the boat’s Certificate of Title from the seller, who must complete the assignment portion of the document. Notarization may be required.
- Complete the Watercraft Registration Application.
- Make a check or money order payable to “Wyoming Game and Fish Department” for registration fees. Current fees can be found on the application form.
- Submit paperwork and payment in-person at a WGFD regional office, or send it by mail to the below address.
