    Q: What vessels require registration?


    A: All motorized vessels used on public waters including vessels which use an electric trolling motor must be
    registered. This requirement also includes jet skis.
    All US Coast Guard Documented Vessels operating in North Carolina for over 90 consecutive days must
    be registered.
    All sailboats used on public waters must be registered if longer than 14 feet at the load waterline.
    If a vessel registered in another state is brought into North Carolina for over 90 consecutive days, the
    registration must be transferred to North Carolina. Active duty military, temporarily stationed in North
    Carolina, who have a valid out of state registration for their vessel are exempt from this requirement.
    All titled vessels must be registered.

    Q: What vessels are exempt from registration?


    A: Vessels that are unused and kept on dry land do not need registration in North Carolina.
    Rowboats, canoes, kayaks, and rafts moved only by oars, paddles, or the current do not need registration in North
    Carolina.
    A vessel used only on a private pond does not need registration in North Carolina.
    Ship's lifeboats or dinghies do not need to be registered if they are used only for emergency lifeboat
    purposes. However, if they are motorized and used for non-emergency purposes, they do require
    registration.
