Proposed Registration Fees for MD

It looks like MD DNR made some concessions to the registration fees and they will be submitted as follows:

NO phase in period. One increase ONLY
All fees will be bi-annual (paid every 2 years)

All Boats UNDER 16' $25.00 /2 yrs
Boats 16 - 21' $50.00 /2yrs
Boats 21-32' $ 75.00 /2 yrs
Boats 32-45' $100.00 /2 yrs
Boats 45-65' $200.00 /2yrs
Boats over 65' $300.00 /2 yrs

Title Fee, $35.00

From what I understand the hard work was done by Marine Trades Association of Maryland and the Marine Trades Association of Baltimore County

Bargain. I pay $600 every 2 yrs in RI, plus $30 for the dinghy.

Re: Proposed Registration Fees for MD

That's much more reasonable.

Now if we can stop the legislature from raiding the waterways funds, then the DNR might actually have two coins to rub together to do their job.

Or, one can cruise, pay a one time documentation fee.

One doesn't have to cruise to document it. I'm considering it now. Our boat used to be documented. So far I don't see a down side to returning it to a documented vessel status.

It also gives us more cruising options.

Documenting the boat does nothing to avoid having to register in MD if you remain in MD.

Documenting and cruising to the extent that you don't remain in any juristiction long enough for their rules to apply would work, but thats a few steps beyond a simple USCG Documentation.

Re: Proposed Registration Fees for MD

Some states require registration, even with documentation, if the boat remains in state waters past a certain amount of time. One of the reasons I chose Alaska for the site of my home port (aside from having lived a major chunk of my life there and still have family there) is because the state doesn't require registration if the vessel is out of state waters over 6 months out of the year. Oh, and it's also the only state with no state income or sales tax, plus the state gives you money from the Permanent Dividend Fund annually (not tax dollars). Unfortunately, they have this sticky little rule about living there to get it

I checked their website. You still register but show proof of documentation.

Actually its illegal by federal law to also state register ('title') a boat that is federally registered/documented --- thats why most states apply a 'use' tax to federally documented boats.
