What Is Yacht Documentation?

Documentation is a federal registration of vessels five net tons and over (approx. 28’ and up) with the U.S. Coast Guard, and is generally a requirement of banks and financial companies who may be financing a portion of the purchase price.

The documentation procedure here in the United States is patterned after the British system of registering yachts, with the primary purpose being the establishment of an internationally recognized maritime title for the yacht. The Certificate of Documentation acts as the vessel’s passport in foreign waters as well as an authorization for the vessel’s use in general or specific trades. Additionally, vessel documentation establishes an official basis for vessel identification and control.

Due to the fact that documentation allows the recordation of preferred mortgages on the Abstract of Title of Vessels, banks and finance companies are assured of a federally recorded lien. Documentation also provides protection against fraudulent transfer of the yacht.
