54: On-Sale General for Boat

Type 54 California Liquor License
On-Sale General for Boat

A Type 54 California liquor license provides for the sale of beer, wine, and distilled spirits by the lessee or operator of a boat carrying passengers for hire.  Common uses of a Type 54 liquor license would be a harbor cruise boat, lake cruise, and various party boats.  The vessel must be operated by a person or persons who are duly licensed by the United States Coast Guard.

It noteworthy that alcohol sales can not occur while the boat is at dock.  However, for scheduled trips and charters, sales of alcoholic beverages may begin 30 minutes prior to departure and may continue for 30 minutes after returning.

The fee for a Type 54 liquor license is $610 for the first year and an annual renewal fee of $510.
