Congratulations on being a boat or jet ski owner, and welcome to the "good life" out on the water! We understand the feeling, and getting your boat number sticker order out fast so you can relax is a priority to us. Our US Coast Guard compliant, 3 inch tall boat number decals are pre-spaced and ready to apply so you don't have to line up each number, or worry about spacing them properly when you install them. Each boat number sticker is made from outdoor die cut adhesive vinyl so your vessel color will serve as your background color when you install your number.  

Ordering Instructions: Select your font, enter your hull ID number, select your text color, choose to add a shadow color and click add to cart. Quantity can be updated once the item is added to your cart.

Highlighted below are the two different boat number regulation types for recreational water craft (boats, jet skis, canoes, kayaks, PWC),  and for commercial vessels that are federally registered as opposed to state registered. 

Recreational Watercraft Regulation

All state registered recreational boat and jet ski numbers must be displayed on both sides of the bow of the watercraft in a minimum of 3” tall lettering and must be visible so that they contrast with the color of the watercraft. Hull identification number stickers (HIN’s) must be installed so that they read from left to right. 

Commercial Watercraft Regulation

For commercial or federally licensed watercraft, the numbers must be displayed in block-type numerals that are at least 4” tall, and placed so they are clearly visible on both sides of the vessel. In addition, to meet coast guard requirements, the commercial vessel name must also be displayed on the port and starboard sides of the hull, and the stern. The stern markings should include both the boat name and hailing port. The hailing port must include the city and state or territory. To see the full list of federal vessel regulations please visit the US Coast Guard website on the National Vessel Documentation Center (NVDC) page.
