How is the program funded?
Derelict Vessel Removal Program funding comes from an additional $3 fee placed on annual vessel registration fees and an additional $5 added to the cost of obtaining a non-resident vessel permit fee. This is why it is so crucial for boaters to keep their vessel's registration current. Other options for addressing abandoned vessels, including vessels on land, in marinas and vessels adrift, are described in the state's rules regarding abandoned vessels.
