Registering a Boat

All motorized and sail-powered vessels must be registered and numbered with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT).

All registrations are valid for three years, expiring the third year on the date of initial registration. Owners may renew online through the KDWPT’s Renewal Portal, by phone (620-672-5911), via mail to the address printed on the renewal notice, or in person at the location seen below.

Note: Private sellers must notify the KDWPT of the sale within 15 days of the transfer of ownership.
