Let's face it: buying a used boat can be a little risky. Often there is no way to know what the history of
the boat is. Has it been submerged and totaled? Has it been recalled? Has it been stolen or salvaged?
When making an investment in a boat you should do your homework. Boats can be dangerous - and you certainly don't want
to purchase one that's had major damage in the past. We recommend beginning with a free boat HIN check. A HIN lookup will
help you find out whether a used boat is worth buying.
A boat HIN search will work for any boat made in 1972 or later:
Just find the twelve-character HIN for the boat you are interested in. Enter it in the
free boat HIN check
and in moments you'll see the number of times that particular boat has popped up in the National Vehicle Database.
However, the HIN lookup will only tell you the number of records the database has for the vessel you are interested in.
To really find out about the history of the boat you'll need to purchase the Used Boat History Report.
