Classification of Vessels|
Vessels in the state of Florida fall into one of two classifications:
commercial or pleasure.
If the classification of a vessel changes, the owner must complete
DHSMV form 87015.
This form along with the current registration must be presented at the
Tax Collector's Office. If the current registration cannot be located,
certification as to why the original registration is not available can
be completed on DHSMV Form 87015.
A fee of $6.25 will be charged.
If the owner of a vessel is a non-resident and is changing the vessel
classification from pleasure to commercial, an additional $50.00 vessel
fee is due if the vessel is not subject to a specific reciprocal agreement
with another state.
