Alaska Boat Bill of Sale Requirements

The state does not have any special requirements regarding the Alaska Watercraft Bill of Sale format. As long as the document includes all the important information, it is considered a legal proof of ownership. When creating your bill of sale, indicate the following information:

  • Identification information regarding the buyer and the seller. At a minimum, enter full names and physical addresses with states and ZIP-codes for both;
  • Description of the vessel to be sold. Provide all the information required for a proper identification of the watercraft to be transferred. Include make, length, year, odometer readings in hours, hull ID number, registration number, and title number;
  • If a trailer is included in the sale, provide its description as well. Mention its model, make, year, and serial number;
  • If the watercraft is supplied with an outboard motor, specify it in the document and add the motor's model, make, year, and horsepower;
  • If the transferred watercraft has any loans or other encumbrances, list and describe them on the form;
  • Amount to be paid for the vessel. The amount must be specified in US dollars;
  • Signatures of the seller and the buyer.

Does a Boat Bill of Sale Have to Be Notarized in Alaska?

The state does not require notarization of the Alaska Vessel Bill of Sale. However, it is always a good idea to have a third party to affirm your bargain. If you want some extra protection, you can add a block for a notary public's certification. You may also want to ask two witnesses to testify the transfer and sign the document.
