The Town Clerk is an authorized boat registration agent in accordance with rules of the Department of Safety. Boat registrations follow the calendar year and therefore expire on December 31 annually.
The State of New Hampshire mails renewal boat registration forms directly to boat owners who registered a boat during the previous year. You will need to provide that form to us when you complete your renewal.
When you complete your boat registration in town, the town fees collected stay in Hopkinton. When you mail the renewal forms directly to the State of New Hampshire the state keeps the town portion of your registration, it is not credited to the Town.
