    I found a boat in AZ that I want to buy. The guy that owns the boat doesn't have a title, and the boat has never been registered. Is there anyway for him to get a title for the boat? I can't register it in NM unless I have the actual title, not just a registration. I can't find any information online other than AZ is a registration only state, and that's not helping me much. Could someone please help me out here? Thanks a ton.

    I would contact Arizona Game & Fish Department, boating section...I have sold numerous boats to residents of other states and heard no problems with the registration from Arizona...Have had issues with the title on the trailers...but that is a DPS issue!

    It is my understanding that all he has to do is take the boat to the azgf with a bill of sale of gift notice. As long as it has a Hull ID they will run a check on it and then register it to him.

    If there is no hull I'd then things can get complicated.


    Give the AZGF a call 602 942-3000 to verify what can be done.
