If you are buying a boat, trailer or motor in the Greater Baton Rouge area, please call George Tull at 225-907-5280. As a travelling notary public, he will come to you and complete all of paperwork including the BOS and title transfer. If you are not in the Baton Rouge area, here are the free Louisiana boat Bill of Sale forms for your use.
Buying or selling a boat in Louisiana can be complicated! You are dealing with the Office of Motor Vehicles on the trailer, and the Office of Wildlife and Fisheries for the boat and motor. You can separate the transaction by having three BOS forms for the boat, motor and trailer, but that’s a hassle. I really prefer this one form below that includes everything. If you are just buying a boat, and don’t need the motor and trailer section, then just strike through what you don’t need. It’s simple, and that’s a good thing.
You need to know a few things before filling out the Louisiana Boat, Motor & Trailer Bill of Sale form such as:
- The full name of the parties. The seller’s name should match what is on the title and registration.
- The boat model, year, hull number and registration number.
- The motor’s year, make and model number.
- The trailer’s year, make, model, and VIN.
- The dollar amount of the sale.
