DUI on a Boat? Here’s What You’re Facing with an OUI Charge.

An OUI (A.R.S. §5-395) is defined as “operating or in actual physical control of a motorized watercraft while intoxicated.” If you are operating any kind of watercraft including a boat, a wave runner, a Sea-Doo or any other personal watercraft and are impaired to the slightest degree by the consumption of alcohol or have a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) above .08% within two hours of operating the watercraft, you can be charged with Operating Under the Influence (OUI).
