How do I transfer title of my boat to new owner?

I have an offer on my boat, and don't know the person. With a cash deal, how do I go about making sure I'm covered and have the buyer comfortable that I'm not trying to fleece him? Are there "Boat closing companies"?

Titling and Registering Boats, Vessels, and Outboard Motors

You have 60 days from the date of purchase to title your newly purchased boat, vessel, or outboard motor. If you do not title the boat, vessel, or outboard motor there is a title penalty of $10 on the 61st day after purchase. The penalty increases another $10 for every 30 days you are late with a maximum penalty of $30.
When the boat or vessel is titled and registered, you will receive:
When the outboard motor is titled and registered, you will receive a decal.


From :
Missouri Department of Revenue | Boat/Vessel/Outboard Motor Titling and Registration


In Antigua The owner wrote up a bill of sale, with that and $2000 EC I had a boat title and a corporation to own it since I couldn't myself. So feel lucky.
