USCG Documentation Renewal Made Easy for Vessel Owners

USCG Documentation Renewal

Are you worried about missing the deadline for renewing your vessel documentation? Have you sat down to complete the forms for USCG documentation renewal only to find that it’s more difficult than it should be? Here at the National Documentation Portal, we believe that completing all of your vessel documentation should be simple, the kind of task that takes a few minutes, not a few hours. Below we detail some of the myriad ways we simplify the renewal process. 

USCG Documentation Renewal in a Few Easy Steps 

As you might imagine, renewing USCG documentation is one of the most popular features of our site. Indeed, it’s what we named the URL after. To renew your documentation, simply go to our homepage and click on “Renew Certificate.” No matter what kind of device you open our site on, it should be right there, typically on the lower left side of your screen. Then, click on it, and fill out all of the parts with a little mark next to them. Then, send it into us. That’s it. That’s all you have to do to renew your documentation. 

Renew for Years to Come 

Now, if you do the above, you’ll have renewed your documentation for the coming year. That’s perfectly fine. After all, that’s how the system has always worked: vessel documentation has to be renewed every single year to maintain it. But, to make the process even easier, now, you can renew your documentation for up to five years in advance. So, with just a few presses of a button, you can renew for one, two, three, four, or even five years from now. That way, you don’t have to worry about documentation renewal again for the next half of a decade. 

Simpler and Better Ways to Complete the Renewal Form 

As mentioned above, you can fill out these forms on practically any kind of device. Indeed, we made our site optimized for mobile devices – that means you can complete these on laptops, desktops, phones, tablets, and anything with an internet connection. Moreover, we understand that, when it comes to filling out these forms, you might be concerned that you’re going to make a typo, an error, or something to that effect. Don’t be. We have trained document processors on staff who can find and fix any errors you might have, no matter how small. It’s one more way that we can help.

Vessel Documentation Beyond Renewal 

Documentation renewal is, in all likelihood, the most common reason that people use our site. However, it’s far from the only way that our portal can help vessel owners. Indeed, once you have documented your vessel, you can use our site to apply for a First Preferred Ship’s Mortgage. Then, once you’ve paid that off, you can send in the Satisfaction of Mortgage form as well. Whether you’re researching a potential purchase, selling your documented vessel to someone else, or anything in between, you can find the forms you’ll need right here at our site.
