Hull Identification Numbers (HIN)

A Hull Identification Number (HIN) is permanently affixed to a boat's hull.

A HIN includes a unique national serial number along with information regarding the country of origin, and either manufacturer, model and year of production details for new boats, or an authorised agent code and the year it was affixed.

A HIN is not required for vessels to be registered in Victoria. If your vessel has a HIN affixed you must provide the number during the registration process.
