The one you get from the FCC for a VHF and SSB...there's an online application process. Quite easy. Should list radar, AIS, and whatever else as it's the same price and you cannot add them to the license later...or something like that.

You'll need a Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit for yourself and a Ship Station License for the boat. Go on the FCC website and fill out Form 605. As Daddle suggested, be sure to include all applicable electronics, including EPIRB. Make sure you have a MMSI number from the FCC, too. The one you can get from BoatUS isn't valid outside the US.
