The Town of St. George participates in the online Boat Registration Renewal service offered through the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. 

Who can use this service?

The Boat Registration Renewal service is available to registrants who

  • have previously registered their boat
  • are residents of St. George or are out-of-state residents who dock their boat in St. George
  • and are required to pay excise tax

At this time, documented boats or boats owned by businesses cannot be renewed online.


Fees vary depending on the length, model year, use, and horsepower of the boat (vessel) being registered. This service allows you to pay both state registration fees and municipal excise tax fees in one transaction. Before submitting payment, you will have the opportunity to review all fees. Excise tax fees are distributed to the town.

What you will need
