Marine Documentation

Vessel Documentation is a national form of registration facilitated through the US Coast Guard. Through this process, the vessel is awarded a six or seven digit number. This number is to be affixed to the vessel on some clearly visible interior structural part of the hull in a permanent fashion. This number remains with the vessel regardless of ownership changes. Because boats are mobile, this is the safest form of registration for both the owner and the lender, as the ownership and any lien information can be traced through an abstract of title.

Generally speaking, a vessel more than 25' in length can be documented by a US Citizen. Documentation is a great method of recording your ownership and is required by most lending institutions; however, we understand that you may have questions regarding the process or advantages of documentation. We would be glad to answer your questions. Simply contact us or complete the simple form to your right and we will contact you. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to speak with you.
