Tennessee boat registration fees will increase on July 1.
It will mark the first increase in 12 years according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.
The current fee for a 16-foot boat and under is $13 for one year, $24 for two, and $35 for three. The new fees will be $15, $28, and $41, respectively. Vessels with a length over 16-feet to 26-feet will increase from $25 to $29 for a year. Those over 26 feet to 40 increases from $38 to $44 and vessels more than 40 feet moves from $51 to $59 for a year.
TWRA says the increase is in line with the rise of the consumer price index since the last fee increase was made.
The higher fees are still awaiting approval by the Government Operations Committee of the Tennessee General Assembly.
