The cost to register a vessel in the state will increase from $10 to $15 for one-year registrations and from $25 to $40 for three-year registrations. The fee increases will apply to new and transfer registrations, as well as renewals on existing registrations. 

The cost of vessel titles will remain $20. 

The money generated by the fee increase will be used to develop public boat access areas as well as preserve existing access. 

"The rapid rate of change along North Carolina's shorelines has created a situation that requires immediate action and adaptation," said Gordon Myers, a deputy director with the commission, in a statement. "Our goal is to maximize public value by directing these new funds towards projects that leverage multiagency partnerships and multiuse facilities."
