Have you been struggling to find the information you can trust about foreign vessels? Did you find the perfect vessel to buy, yet it’s in another country and you aren’t all that sure about its history? Here at the Maritime Documentation Center, we know how important it is to have all of the information you can before you make a purchase. After all, a vessel isn’t something you buy on a whim – it’s an important purchase. If you were looking at USCG vessels in America, you’d use the Abstract of Title. To provide you with that information, we offer the “Foreign Vessel Title Search Request/Transcript of Registry” form. That way, you can learn what you need to know.
What You Can Get From this Form
In a word, you can get the truth. You can find out, once and for all, what’s really going on with this vessel. For example, you can know whether or not there are any liens or mortgages recorded against the vessel. By that same token, you can know whether they were satisfied or not. Instead of having to take someone’s word for it and hope for the best, you can know what’s really happening. That way, you can make the best, most informed decision.
To Get the Information You Want, You Only Need to Provide a Little
We know that when you’re researching a vessel, you’re searching for information. You don’t have it all right there in front of you, otherwise, you might not be utilizing this form. To that end, we’ve made it so that you don’t need all that much information to find out what you need to know. Simply enter the information you do have: the vessel’s name, the owner’s name, where it hails from, what kind of boat it is, and so forth. We can work with you to make sure that you get the information you’re searching for.
Why This Form Matters
Without it, you’re more or less at the mercy of whoever is selling the vessel. In a better world, no one would like or exaggerate about a vessel. When selling a vessel, they would be as upfront as possible, always telling the truth to prospective buyers. Unfortunately, we don’t live in that world. So, it’s entirely possible that you could buy a vessel from overseas, bring it to America, only to find that there are any number of liens, mortgages, and more that you’ll have to deal with. This form can keep that from happening.
Help with Other Documentation for USCG Vessels
This is just one of the many forms that we offer to vessel owners. Many of the others cover what to do once you’ve purchased the vessel. Should you determine that the right thing to do is to document your vessel, you can do that at our site. You can even renew or reinstate your documentation, too. For help with these forms or any of our others, we have an experienced, professional staff ready to help. You can email or call us at (800) 535-8570.
