Department of Natural Resources
The San Juan County Derelict Vessel Program works closely with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR)
in our efforts to keep the waterways safe and clean. DNR is in charge of managing our states' natural resources in a sustainable way and have done so reliably for over fifty years.
Vessel Turn in Program
The purpose of DNR's Vessel Turn In Program
is to enable DNR to dismantle vessels that do not yet satisfy the definition of “derelict” or “abandoned” but are likely to become derelict or abandoned in the near future. If you qualify, DNR may dispose of you vessel free of charge.
If you are looking to moor your vessel long term and wish to apply for a buoy permit, visit the Aquatic Leasing and Licensing page
