Individuals or businesses that manufacture, distribute, sell or demonstrate watercraft in the Commonwealth of Virginia must be licensed by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF). This requirement applies to both in-state and out-of-state individuals and businesses if they are operating within the Commonwealth. Watercraft Dealers are businesses who sell watercraft using one or more retail locations. The Watercraft Dealer is responsible for obtaining a Watercraft Salesperson License for each Salesperson that sells and demonstrates their watercraft in Virginia in compliance with the provisions of Chapter 8, Title 29.1 of the Code of Virginia, as set forth in Chapter 592, Acts of Assembly of 1988 (29.1-810 of the Code of Virginia). A $5,000 surety bond is required by VDGIF.
