What Is Yacht Documentation?
Documentation is a federal registration of vessels five net tons and over
(approx. 28í 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 vesselís passport
in foreign waters as well as an authorization for the vesselís 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.
