Boat registration can be done at the Town Office. Please bring the bill of sale and Maine registration numbers (if already on boat and previously registered in Maine by prior owner). State sales tax on purchase price will be collected on private sale. Dealerships collect sales tax at time of purchase and provide you with a Dealer's Certificate. You will need to bring this at the time of registration.
Excise is computed on boat's age, length, and engine horsepower. The Inland Fisheries fees are now also based on the horsepower of the motor.
All Boat Registrations Expire on December 31.
