YACHT DOCUMENTATION

Get Coast Guard boat documentation for your yacht.

Yachts for Sale works with marine lenders, yacht brokers and individuals to ensure that the boat documentation process goes smoothly.

Boat documentation is a national registration administered by the US Coast Guard, which provides globally recognized evidence of ownership.

This status as a “flagged vessel” offers many privileges, such as international recognition of your boat, priority treatment when it comes to getting a boat loan, or operational entitlements for commercial activity. While all commercial boats that meet the size requirements are all required to be documented, it’s optional for recreational boats. And if you decide it’s right for you, the team at Yachts for Sale can handle the whole process! Let’s go over the basics.

What’s needed to Document Your Boat.

Boat documentation is processed through an application with the Coast Guard’s National Vessel Documentation Center. Supporting documents are often required such as certificates of build, bills of sale, and even previous titles. Yachts for Sale experts help source the documents and process your application for you.
