Creating a Bill of Sale form is utterly important for those who want to protect themselves from probable future legal arguments concerning the sale and purchase procedures. This document legally proves transferring ownership of your property, as well as motor vehicles, vessels, and appliances. The bill of sale template varies from state to state in the US. Thus one should be exceptionally careful when creating this document.
In Georgia, the Boat Bill of Sale Form serves to evince seller(s) legal agreement and buyer(s) on conveying the rights to a motorboat. The fact that a motorboat has been sold and purchased needs to be reported to the GADNR within 15 days after the procedure, according to O.C.G.A. 52-7-5(j-k) state law of Georgia. This document is also necessarily required for further vessel registration. Do not forget to provide copies of the paper for both parties to keep records.

Georgia Boat Registering Procedures
You cannot operate a motorboat and a boat longer than twelve feet in the state without registration, which should be initiated (online or offline) within 60 days after acquisition. Vessel registration expires after three calendar years.
The following set of documentation will be required:
- Proof of Ownership (you may opt for the BOS)
- Vessel Registration Application (if you are registering a vessel offline, it has to be signed)
- Fee Receipts
- Additional Documentation for GA Vessels with Paper Title, Brand New Vessels, Out-of-State Vessels, and Homemade Vessels
An individual who has recently obtained the rights to a motor vehicle as a result of a sale and purchase act will receive the existing registration number and a new registration period. Customers should not fail to provide the current address and other personal information.
When changing your address, or email address, remember to contact the GADNR and indicate up-to-date information.
