How National Vessel Documentation Relates to Financing

national vessel documentation

Do you know that you more or less need to get national vessel documentation to get financing for your vessel, but aren’t sure how to go about it? Has it come time to put a lien on someone else’s vessel, yet you don’t know the process? If you’re like so many vessel owners, “financing,” “mortgages,” and “liens” are words that you wish you didn’t have to deal with. However, they’re a fact of life when it comes to getting out on the water. At our site, we offer the forms that you need to be able to protect your money, investment, and vessel. 

National Vessel Documentation & Preferred Ship’s Mortgage

As you may know, most lenders and banks will only give you a mortgage if you have your vessel documented. At our site, you’ll be able to do that quickly and easily. Then, once your vessel has been documented, usually, the next form you’ll need is the “Preferred Ship’s Mortgage” one. As ever, you’ll be able to find and complete that at our site just as easily as you did the one for your initial documentation. We believe in making every step of vessel documentation as simple as can be. 

Satisfying Forms in Easy to Fill Out Ways 

It’s been said that “the best days in owning a vessel are the day you buy it and the day you sell it.” Those can be exciting days for sure, however, “the day you pay off the mortgage/lien” have to be right up there. After all, those are the days that your vessel is truly paid off and becomes “yours” in a very real, permanent way. As with all of our other forms, you can complete it at our site from just about any device or location, provided you’re connected to the internet. 

If It’s Time to Put a Lien on Someone’s Vessel… 

In some circumstances, you may want to put a lien on someone else’s vessel. Perhaps you did work on it and you were never compensated for it. Maybe you crewed on it for a while and you did not receive the payment that you had agreed to. At our site, we can’t really tell you whether or not it’s a good idea to file for a notice of claim of lien on someone else’s vessel. That’s for you to take up with a legal professional. However, if you decide to do so, you can find the form you’ll need at our site. 

All the Other Forms You May Need 

The above are just some of the forms related to boat financing you can find at our site. There are so, so many others – several of which have nothing to do with financing at all, but rather, are about making sure that you can use your vessel in the manner you choose. If you want to use your vessel for commercial fishing, transporting goods or people, in foreign lands, or just to have fun with family and friends, our site is here. For more: (866) 981-8783.
