Boating Violations (BUI)


In the State of Florida, countless arrests for boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs (BUI) are made every year. These cases are prosecuted very aggressively, and a conviction can lead to a suspended or revoked driver's license, increased insurance rates, heavy fines, and even imprisonment, depending on the operator's previous conviction record.

If you have been charged with operating a boat while intoxicated, you need representation from a committed Florida BUI defense attorney who can fight to have your charges reduced or dropped altogether. The experienced BUI defense lawyers of the Colter Law Group in Stuart, FL serve clients throughout the Treasure Coast who have been accused of boating under the influence. We offer free initial consultations and flexible appointment scheduling, including evenings and weekends.

Florida boating under the influence law

As with driving a car, boating under the influence of alcohol is defined in Florida by having a blood or breath alcohol level of .08% or higher (.02% for those under the age of 21), or when the operator's normal faculties are impaired by drugs. Because Florida's waterways are heavily trafficked and boating accidents and related injuries are common, prosecutors take boating violations very seriously, and are aggressive in their approach to prosecuting individuals accused of boating while intoxicated (BWI).
