The annual registration fee is $25.00 plus a $0.50 search and rescue surcharge designated to go to your county of residence/registration. $4.00 of this registration fee is allocated to the Utah Division of Motor Vehicles for processing the vessel's registration. The remaining $21.00 is allocated to Utah State Parks and Recreation to fund Utah's Boating Program.
The assigned Bow Number must be displayed on the forward half of the vessel, either painted on or affixed to the hull.
The Bow Numbers must be plain, one color, vertical, block characters at least three inches in height that read from left to right. They must contrast with the background color of the hull and be distinctly visible and legible from a distance of approximately 150 feet. Spaces or hyphens, equal to the width of a letter, must separate the number and letter groupings.
The assigned Bow Number consists of the prefix letters UT, four numbers and two suffix letters. For example: UT 1234 BX or UT-1234-BX.
The Yearly Registration Decals must be displayed three inches aft (towards the stern) of the Bow Number on each side of the boat. The Month of Expiration Decals must be displayed immediately aft (towards the stern) of the Yearly Registration Decals.
On documented vessels, the Yearly Registration Decals and the Month of Expiration Decals shall be displayed on each side of the forward half of the vessel.
On boats where the placement of the Bow Number, Yearly Registration Decals and Month of Expiration Decals on the hull or superstructure would not be visible or where the type of hull material used would make it impractical to permanently attach, the Bow Number, Yearly Registration Decals and Month of Expiration Decals may be mounted on a backing plate and displayed as described above.
