    Please note: In an effort to avoid raising registration fees overall, there is a $3.00 system maintenance fee charged for all registration related transactions processed online.  If you wish to avoid paying this fee, you can mail or walk in your application and required documents to one of our registration offices for processing.  Please enclose, with your application, a check or money order, payable to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

    Also, please be aware--if you wish to renew or duplicate an existing motorboat, snowmobile, or recreation vehicle registration, you should already be on our customer list. Please follow the instructions for an Existing Customer once you enter the site. You will be asked to provide your customer ID or your last name, date-of-birth, and city/zip code.
