National Vessel Documentation Center

Have you been looking for the right forms for your vessel but have yet to do so? Does it feel like you’ve wasted hours (or more) meticulously typing out one form or another at your desktop? That’s what our National Vessel Documentation Center can help with (among other concerns). Here at the National Documentation Portal, we have all of the forms you might need for your journey of vessel ownership, up to and including when there are changes in your life, too. 

Life is dynamic, and so are the circumstances surrounding vessel ownership. Whether you’re moving to a new locale, acquiring a new boat, or undergoing changes in vessel use, staying in compliance with Coast Guard regulations is crucial. We understand that navigating through the maze of forms can be daunting. That’s why we’ve got you covered with the right Coast Guard forms for every twist and turn in your maritime journey.

A Change in Latitude, A Change in Form

Relocating can be a thrilling adventure, but it also requires due diligence to keep your vessel documentation up to date. If your current address no longer matches the one on your vessel documentation, it’s time to file the “Change of Address” form. 

Likewise, if your boat has found a new permanent home in a different port, you can utilize our “Change of Vessel Name or Hailing Port” form, too. 

Smooth Sailing for New Beginnings

The acquisition or sale of a boat is a significant event in any seafarer’s life. Our site offers the appropriate forms to facilitate this transition seamlessly. If you’ve just acquired a new vessel or are parting ways with an ownership group, the “Transfer” form is your go-to solution. 

It’s not just for buying or selling; if you decide to welcome a new co-owner aboard, this form has you covered. Additionally, upon the joyous occasion of boat ownership, you can file for initial documentation right here at our portal, too. 

Charting Your Course with Information

Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to making informed decisions about a potential vessel purchase. Before committing to a boat, you want to delve into its history. 

Our “Abstract of Title” form provides a comprehensive overview, revealing any mortgages or liens against the vessel, its chain of ownership, manufacturing details, and more. It’s your safeguard against acquiring a vessel that does not live up to what you were told.
