PROTECTION

We maintain a national registry of registered and documented vessels in the United States. When you’re a BNR Member, we will protect your special boat name.

CONVENIENCE

We’ll securely store your boat’s name, home port, dimensions, hull ID, state registration, and insurance details in one portal. You’ll have 24/7 access to this important information.

PEACE OF MIND

If a boating emergency occurs, all your vessel’s details are securely stored in the BNR database. When time is of the essence, you can quickly access this information and enable marine rescue to provide assistance.

WHY BNR?

Boat Ownership is a Rewarding Experience

Spending time on the water means enjoying the fresh sea air with family and friends. Many boat owners also enjoy their vessel because it reflects their personal identity. Whether a powerboat, sailboat, or commercial vessel, each boat proudly displays a distinctive name that’s hand-picked by its owner.
It's Your Boat. Your Boat Name. Register it.
It's Your Boat.
Your Boat Name.
