Boat Registration Numbers

Design your own boat registration numbers right here. We have setup a step by step system providing you with the tools online to create your registration letters interactively.

Any motorized boat in the United States must contain boat registration numbers on the hull of the boat. You will find that this information can vary slightly by state. In short most states require that the registration letters be no less than 3 inches tall and in block lettering. This will ensure compliance with local laws.

Design Boat Registration Numbers

Do I need to buy 2?
All of our boat registration numbers are sold by the pair! That means the price you see is for the pair of numbers. When you get a set you can put one on each side of the boat. Most people need a set so we go ahead and make that part of the price.

Are the letters pre spaced?
All of our lettering orders come pre spaced with application tape meaning you don't have to worry about applying each registration letter individually. The application tape covers the entire set of lettering like a big piece of masking tape allowing you to place it directly on your boat in one step.

What is considered block letters?
Block lettering is typically a font like arial black. Strong thick text that is not script styled. Check your state and local laws as to see if block lettering is a requirement for your boat. If it is we recommend not using one of our fancy fonts and sticking with a registration number compliant font such as arial black.
