Vessel Documentation Search at the National Documentation Portal 

At our site, if you type in the HIN or the ON, there’s plenty of info that you can receive. For example, you very well may be able to get the vessel’s particulars, its dimensions, endorsement, and more. You’ll also know when its Certificate of Documentation was issued and when it will expire. What you won’t receive, however, is information about the vessel’s owner. That was removed from online access in 2018. There are other ways at our site to acquire that info. 

Ownership Info: The Abstract of Title

The Abstract of Title is more than just a document; it is your window into a vessel’s past, offering a detailed account that goes beyond assumptions. This vital record provides essential details, including the vessel’s manufacturer and the exact date of its manufacture. 

Crucially, it sheds light on any outstanding liens or mortgages affixed to the vessel, eliminating uncertainties regarding financial encumbrances. Even if these encumbrances have been satisfied, the Abstract of Title serves as an indisputable testament to the vessel’s financial history. Armed with this knowledge, you are empowered to make informed decisions, safeguarding your investment against potential pitfalls.
