How can I determine what company manufactured a particular boat?

Category: Boating - Nautical


The federal government requires boat manufacturers (after 1972) to register a 12 character identification code know as a HIN. A HIN is different than your state registration number, which may be required to be displayed on the bow of your boat. The codes of most boats are search-able on the MIC hull identification code database, as well as the list of manufacturers. Manufacturers that are no longer actively manufacturing boats will also be on the list with their last known address.
