What are State Assigned HIN Numbers?

  1. 1. All About State-Issued Hull ID Numbers
  2. 2. What is a State Assigned HIN? The general rule is that the maker of the boat must affix a standard HIN to the hull of the boat Otherwise, the State and or USCG will work together to provide you with a HIN We discuss the different cases where the State might issue a HIN for your Boat Occasionally the USCG has allowed a 12 character HIN with an incorrect format as long as the manufacturer and year of the vessel can be identified Kit Boat is a boat in which the buyer purchases plans to build the boat and the materials to complete the boat are supplied by the manufacturer/seller
  3. 3. Imported Boats and their HIN A single boat imported by an individual for their own personal use receives a HIN from the State in which the boat is principally operated This boat requires a state issued HIN in the New Format On the other hand, if you are an importer of boats for sale in the USA , then the boat will receive a HIN with your MIC
  4. 4. Are There other cases for State Issued HINs + When the State encounters HINs on boats within 10 years old from the date of manufacture, that contain any number of characters other than 12 and the manufacturer is out of business, the State should verify if the USCG authorization has been given and then the State should issue a State HIN using the New Format + Another case is when you have a boat with a manufacturer HIN that was not correct + For example, the manufacturer did not follow the standard format for the HIN or the year is invalid…etc
  5. 5. How do I know if my HIN is invalid? + Use HINDecoder.com to validate the Hull Number. + Boats before 1972 get issued a state HIN. It is Risky to buy a boat that has a State Assigned HIN. + Many states have a provision that is worth noting: Such boats would fall under the homemade-boat-provision and can lead to mischief + A state assigned HIN will have the year and month of the HIN issue date and not the year of manufacture.
