  • dealer transferees
  • fee


(1)

If an owner transfers interest in a boat, boathouse or floating home for which an Oregon certificate of title has been issued, other than by the creation of a security interest as provided by ORS 830.745 (Notation on title of creation, satisfaction or assignment of security interest), the owner shall, with the signed consent of the security interest holder shown on the face of the certificate of title, indorse on the back of the certificate an assignment thereof, with warranty of title in a form printed thereon and a statement of all unsatisfied security interests shown on the face of the certificate. Except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, the transferee shall sign the certificate in an application space provided thereon, and shall indicate any new security interests in order of priority. The transferee or holder of the certificate shall, within 10 days after the transfer, present the certificate accompanied by the required fee to the State Marine Board, whereupon a new certificate of number or registration shall be issued and delivered to the transferee and a new certificate of title shall be issued to the transferee, and delivered to the first security interest holder in order of priority, if any, or if none, to the transferee.

(2)

If the transferee is a dealer who purchases the boat, boathouse or floating home for resale, the transferor shall merely indorse the certificate of title, and the dealer shall not be required to present the certificate of title to the board until the dealer transfers the boat, boathouse or floating home. However, the dealer shall notify immediately the board that the boat, boathouse or floating home has been transferred to the dealer. Upon the transfer of the boat, boathouse or floating home by the dealer, the dealer shall deliver to the transferee the assigned certificate of title received by the dealer. The transferee, unless a dealer purchasing the boat, boathouse or floating home for resale, shall sign the certificate and complete it in the manner provided in subsection (1) of this section, whereupon the board shall issue and deliver a new certificate of number or registration and a new certificate of title in the manner provided in subsection (1) of this section.
