The Importance of Vessel Inspection 

The Utah boating Act requires Utah Division of Parks and Recreation to ensure the safety of vessels and persons on the water

Boats can be less forgiving than land-based travel. All other modes of transportation who carry passengers for hire have inspection programs.

Vessel Inspection programs are the reasonable solution to ensure public safety.

 Benefits for Outfitting Companies: Our goal is to work together with outfitting companies to provide the public with safe and meaningful experiences on Utah’s waterways.

Outfitting Companies & Required Annual Inspection Program

– All outfitting companies will need to have an annual ‘self-inspection’ program to ensure the vessel’s safety.

– Outfitting companies with larger, motorized vessels will also need to participate in a five-year inspection program performed by a trained inspector representing Utah State Parks.

Not all vessels are the same; therefore, not all inspections are the same. Vessels are only inspected for the systems, structure, and equipment associated with that particular vessels.
