How does a California Undocumented Vessel Bond work?

This bond will serve as an enforceable agreement among three parties, namely:

Principal – the person applying for registration or transfer of undocumented vessel

Obligee – State of California

Surety – surety bond provider

The Principal and the Surety will partner in assuring the California DMV that anyone who will be harmed by the non-disclosure of the Principal will be compensated. The Principal is primarily responsible for the fulfillment of the obligations required by the Obligee. If the Principal fails to do any of the bonded obligations required by the relevant laws, rules, and regulations, the Obligee can file a bond claim.

The claim will first be verified by the Surety before it is settled. Once the Surety has settled the claim, the Principal will reimburse the Surety for the payments made.
