Hull Identification Number For A Jeanneau

I have a 1990 Jeanneau and can not locate the hull ID number. I can not find it on the transom or starboard end of the boat. Any one have any ideas?

It's usually also in a second location inside the boat. I think mine is in the engine compartment if I recall correctly.

Re: Hull Identification Number For A Jeanneau

The Hull Identification Number is usually on the starboard side of the stern, molded into the fiberglass near or on the deck joint .The builder's identifier, date of manufacture, and hull number are encoded in this number . I am going to my boat later in the week will have a look inside for the other one and let you know where mine is.

Hull ID numbers were required as of Nov. 1971 for US made and an additional area stamped inside the vessel. Found out after butting heads for 3 months with state of Texas while transferring title for 1971 Seafarer. Explained and provided photos that no hin existed on this boat. Was told needed a pencil etching.... An etch of something not there was not easy to provide.
Had all original paperwork and had to do research and prove to them hull was manufactured Sept 71 and boat sold as 72 model.
You would think the gov would know their own laws. Have sometimes thought gov employees were underpaid..... This was not the case.

Re: Hull Identification Number For A Jeanneau

What Hartley said matches our info. On our Jeanneau the HIN is s/b, outboard & just below the toe rail, almost as far aft as you can go. It is only perhaps a cm high & the lettering is the same colour as the hull. I think it is stamped in; you may feel it easier than seeing it. Even knowing where & what to look for it isn't easy to spot.
