Boat Registration Renewal Made to Fit Your Life

Do you have a nagging suspicion in the back of your mind that it’s time to renew your vessel registration? Does it feel like it’s time for boat registration renewal but you aren’t entirely sure? At our site, we understand how much of a chore vessel documentation can be. After all, we’re vessel owners ourselves. We’ve been through the process of wondering: “is it time to renew my documentation? Or, is it already too late?” Here at the Maritime Documentation Center, we wanted to make this process simple, quick, and easy for vessel owners of all kinds. 

The Facts About Boat Registration Renewal 

Your vessel registration has to be renewed annually. That’s not something that can be negotiated or altered. If you go through the FAQs at our site, you’ll find that many of the rules and regulations have exceptions. This isn’t one of them. You have to do it every year. Renewing documentation is actually the most common and popular use of our site. It’s so popular, in fact, we altered our site so that the “Renewal” form shows up on our home page. So, you don’t even have to click on anything else for renewal, you just have to go to our site. 

Renewing Year by Year from Anywhere 

Putting the “Renewal” form on our homepage is one way that we made renewing documentation more convenient for our vessel owners. Another: we mobile-optimized our site. This means that you can fill out the Renewal Form (or really, any other) from anywhere or on any device, so long as you’re connected to the internet. So, if you’re in line at the bank, are waiting for a meeting to start, or are even on your boat, you can file for your renewal on your desktop, laptop, phone, tablet, or anything else. 

Renew Years in Advance 

With so many forms and documents that you have to deal with, it’s understandable if you forget to fill one out, particularly one that you only have to complete annually. We understand that, which is why we offer an option to renew your documentation for years in advance. What it means is that, for an added fee, we’ll make sure that your documentation is taken care of for two, three, four, or even five years. That way, you don’t have to worry about renewal for the next half-decade. 

Beyond Renewal 

Renewal is the most popular use of our site, yes, but it’s far from the only one. You can file for a mortgage on your vessel, you change the name of your boat or even what your hailing port is, get a replacement form of your Certificate of Documentation, and plenty of others. In fact, if you’re reading this after your documentation has expired, you can use our site to reinstate your documentation, too. You can see all of the uses of our site right here. We also employ a trained, expert staff who can answer your questions at (800) 535-8570 or fill out our contact form.
