Bill of Sale Forms have a simple but most important function – they not only detail the information of your sale, but they also legally transfer ownership of whatever is being sold.

If you’re thinking of buying or selling a boat, you’re going to want to make sure you give (or receive) a bill of sale.

Bills are merely receipts and can be quite simple if the transaction is simple. For goods such as cars and boats, however, you want to make sure you have the proper details locked down. Refer to this list of free sample bill of sale forms (for boats, specifically) to get you started. You can download any of them as free PDF or Word documents.

How to Use These Samples

Remember that a bill of sale is merely a document detailing the information of your sale; details such as:

  • the date the vehicle was sold
  • specific information about the vehicle
  • information about the buyer and the seller (both parties should have their own copy)
  • the amount agreed to and paid for the transfer of ownership

It is that simple.

With that in mind, you have free range of choice from these samples.

  • The unbranded forms are clear, professional, and ready-to-use templates you can download and print for official use.
  • You can also glean great examples from the official bills of sale used by Boat US and the Anchor Marine Surveys, in case you’re interested in following the pros more closely. You’ll find that they all share the necessary information for a good bill of sale as mentioned above.

Be Smart

Buying a boat is not exactly as easy you think. Aside from the hefty price tag, you have to keep in mind other responisbilites that go with it, such as insurance cost and maintenance. Let’s not forget about its “parking space” as well, which you would probably leave in docks and would definitely cost a lot of money. But if you are really determined to have one, then purchase it smartly. Request important documents, especially the bill of sale, and follow the necessary procedures.

Be a savvy and informed buyer. Let’s not sail away without the bill of sales.
