Do I have to have boater’s insurance in California?

You are not required to have boater’s insurance in California. In some states there is a requirement to carry boat insurance, so always check with the boating law administrator’s office in the state you plan to boat in. For contacts in other states, visit the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators

Do I have to register my boat?

  • Boats propelled manually.
  • Sailboats eight feet or less in length.

  • Boats from out of state, registered in that state.
