The United States Coast Guard recommends that all seafaring vessels that are over 5 tons and owned by United States citizens have US Coast Guard vessel documentation. Whether you bought your boat new or second-hand, All Yacht Documentation is here to help you obtain and maintain a Certificate of Documentation for your boat, no matter why you might need it.
While registering your vessel with your state and holding a state title affords you certain benefits, a Certificate of Documentation from the US Coast Guard offers benefits you won’t find anywhere else. This documentation is proof of ownership that is valid across states and even internationally. Such proof may be required if you need to finance your vessel.
This documentation also allows you to operate your vessel internationally. It also helps you go through the customs process as you travel internationally to and from the United States.
When you hold US Coast Guard vessel documentation, you don’t need to hold a state title. If you are holding a State Title presently on your vessel we can surrender your title to the state and Document your vessel, too.
