Introduction

The Hull Identification Number (HIN) is the unique identifier for a boat. When a vessel is registered, it requires a HIN certificate, which lists important vessel details. If you need to change your vessel's HIN data, then a Boatcode Agent will need to inspect the vessel. You can then apply to update your details by either taking the HIN modification certificate to a service centre, or by sending it in the mail.

What you'll need

  • Your proof of identity
  • HIN (Boatcode) Certificate
  • Vessel Registration documents

How to change

  1. Make sure you have all the required documentation, and then:
  • Visit a service centre and provide the information in person, or
  • Mail the documentation to Maritime Product Services, Locked Bag 5100, Camperdown NSW 1450
