Do you want to know more about a vessel but aren’t sure where you can find a source you can trust? Have you been looking for the managing owner of a vessel and continually come up empty. Over a half-decade ago, information about documented vessel ownership was removed from online access. That doesn’t mean, of course, you’re precluded from learning about an owner. You can find their identity and much more through an abstract of title. Apply for one (and other forms) through our site.
The Abstract isn’t the only way you can learn more about a vessel through our site, however. You can also perform a vessel documentation search, too. If you have a vessel’s HIN (Hull Identification Number) or ON (Official Number), then you can learn more about a given vessel. It’s one more way that we can help vessel owners through our site.
The Illuminating Contents of an Abstract of Title
The Abstract may have an odd-sounding name, but it contains plenty of info about a vessel. With this, you can learn precise details about the vessel’s manufacturing date and the identity of its manufacturer.
Delving further, you gain insights into any renovations or alterations the vessel underwent, along with an accurate depiction of the chain of ownership. Crucially, you’ll discover whether any liens or mortgages encumber the vessel, and if so, their status—whether satisfied or looming. Such comprehensive information proves invaluable in the meticulous research of a vessel, to say the very least.
The Significance of an Abstract
When stumbling upon what seems to be the vessel of your dreams online, the last thing you want is for it to turn into a nightmare. Buying a vessel without first looking at the Abstract of Title might lead to unpleasant surprises, such as unanticipated liens and mortgages.
Armed with a plethora of information, you can confidently make informed decisions, ensuring the vessel aligns seamlessly with your needs.

All you have to do to set up a search through our site is to click on the “search” function, then type in a vessel’s ON or HIN. That’s it. It’s really that simple. Moreover, you can do this from any device, too. So you can search while you’re out on the go, out for a walk, at the bank, during a slow moment at work, while you’re at port, and so forth.
