Section: New marine equipment; certificate of origin; assignment of certificate of origin upon sale
a. Whenever new marine equipment is delivered in this State by the manufacturer to his agent or to a dealer, or to a person purchasing directly from the manufacturer, the manufacturer shall execute and deliver a certificate of origin in the form prescribed by the director. No person shall bring into this State for the purpose of offering for sale any new marine equipment unless he has in his possession the certificate of origin as prescribed by the director. b. The certificate of origin shall contain the manufacturer's number; name of the manufacturer; the description of the marine equipment, including its trade name, if any; year, series or model; body type; type of propulsion; type of fuel; length; and any other items that may be prescribed by the director. c. Whenever new marine equipment is sold in this State, the seller shall execute and deliver to the purchaser an assignment of the certificate of origin, with the genuine names and business or residence addresses of both stated thereon, and certified to have been executed with full knowledge of the contents and with the consent of both purchaser and seller. If, in connection with the sale, the security interest is taken or retained by the seller to secure all or part of the purchase price of the marine equipment, or is taken by a person who by making an advance or incurring an obligation gives value to enable the purchaser to acquire rights in the marine equipment, the name and the business or residence address of the secured party or his assignee shall be noted on the assignment of the certificate of origin. Nothing in this section shall apply to a security interest in marine equipment which constitutes inventory held for sale, but the interest shall be subject to chapter 9 of Title 12A of the New Jersey Statutes. L.1984, c. 152, s. 9.
