Title & Registration Fees
Watercraft Fee Schedule - Effective Nov. 1, 2003
Boats using any kind of motor, regardless of length, must be titled and registered in Oregon. Also, sailboats 12 feet and longer must be titled and registered in Oregon. Registration is issued on a two-year calendar basis, with all decals expiring Dec. 31 of the year indicated.  There is no retroactive payment for years the boat was not registered and no late fee for registration.
 
Calculate the fee at $3 per foot rounded up plus $5 for the Aquatic Invasive Species Surcharge.
 
i.e.  A boat 18 feet 2 inches = (19 X $3) + $5 = $62

Floating Homes are typically homes built on a floating dock.  The home may be a domicile including indoor plumbing and living quarters or a boat house, to protect a vessel from the elements.  If the structure contains living space and the boat well, it is considered a "combination."
 
Moorages and floating home communities have designated slips that may be used for floating homes or boathouses.  Counties assess taxes on these structures.  The Division of State Lands (DSL) require a permit to place a structure in Oregon waterways.
 
The Marine Board issues a title and identifying plate for floating structures.  The plate ensures the structure and ownership can be identified by the moorage and law enforcement.
