Your vessel cannot be registered without in Western Australia without a HIN plate being supplied by the Department of Transport, or the manufactures factory HIN verified. This service is also called Boat Code.
Boat Code provides a means to positively identify a boat using its Hull Identification Number (HIN). Similar to a VIN used on motor vehicles.
The security offered by the system may also help buyers get easier financing and better insurance rates from financial providers.
HINs for newer boats will usually be provided by the hull manufacturer. Older boats that do not have a HIN can get one from a BoatCode provider.
Both processes have to be done in person, with the appropriate proof of ownership, identification and valid HIN plates fitted to the vessel.
