USCG Vessel Documentation Center to Help You Research Vessels All Over

Do you have your eye on a boat but aren’t sure if it’s the right vessel for you? Are you in the process of doing your research and need an unimpeachable source that you can trust? That’s something we specialize in here at the USCG Vessel Documentation Center. We have multiple forms that can help you to find out the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about a documented vessel no matter where it is in the world. 

Foreign Vessel Title Search Request/Transcript of Registry 

Through the internet and other means, it’s easier than ever to consider purchasing vessels that are far from our docks. That’s what this form can help with. Simply put, it will let you discover the real truth about a vessel in a foreign land. With it, we can let you know definitively whether there are any maritime liens or recorded mortgages on this vessel. Moreover, we can let you know if those have been satisfied, either. That way, even if the vessel is far off of your course, so to speak, you’ll know what’s really going on with it. 

The USCG Documentation Center and Your Vessel

The Most Information Leads to the Best Decisions

We understand that when you’re looking for information about vessels in foreign lands, you might not have all of the information that you would like. That’s why, with this form, we’re asking for as much information as possible. That said, we understand that you may not have all that much. If you’ll note, in this form, there are far fewer red asterisks for the parts you have to fill out, as compared to other forms. So, fill out what you can, and we’ll do the rest. Bear in mind, though: this form only covers vessels in the UK, Canada, the British Virgin Islands, the Caymans, the Bahamas, and Bermuda. 

Abstract of Title 

Of course, we can help you to get all of the above information if you’re looking for a vessel closer to home, so to speak, as well. An Abstract of Title, filed through our site, can give you all of the above info and more about documented American vessels. Between these two forms, you can know all there is to know about a certain vessel long before you ever decide to purchase it. With more information, you can make a better decision. 

A True USCG Vessel Documentation Center 

Hopefully, you use either of the above forms, find what you’re looking for, and then purchase the vessel of your dreams. Once you do, you’ll be able to find all of the other forms of vessel documentation that you’ll need for the rest of your boat ownership at our site. The initial documentation (should it need that), as well as registration renewal, and so many others can be found right here. In addition to the forms themselves, our highly-trained staff would be more than happy to answer any questions you have about any of this. For more: (800) 535-8570.
