Arizona Boat Bill of Sale Form

Updated August 16, 2023

An Arizona boat bill of sale serves as proof of a boat/vessel purchase and sale between two (2) or more parties. Upon registering their newly acquired boat, the new owner shall submit a bill of sale to the Arizona Game and Fish Department, among several other documents. All motorized and certain gas-powered vessels may not be operated on Arizona waters without proper registration and decals. Therefore, both the buyer and seller are required to draft a bill of sale with all the vessel’s mechanical and cosmetic details as well as the stipulated purchase price.

Signing Requirements – Only the seller(s) must provide their signatories.

Registering a Boat

All motorized and gas-powered boats must be registered with the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD). All newly issued watercraft registrations are valid for 12 months. Upon the second year, registrations will last for anywhere between 7-18 months in order to fit into the “staggered registration system,” wherein the expiration date is determined by the last two digits of the “AZ” number. Renewals may be processed online through the AZGFD’s Registration Renewal System, via mail, or in person at a nearby AZGFD office.

Where to Register

All documentation must be taken in person to a local Arizona Game and Fish Agency location.
