How to ensure your Boat Meets USCG regulations.

As a boat owner, you are required by law to ensure that your vessel is properly registered. Failure to do so means you could be hit with some hefty fines, or possibly lose your boat.  Regulation requirements will vary depending on the size of your vessel, and how it will be used.

If you’re looking to use your boat for commercial purposes, you will need to complete additional documentation and other legal paperwork. The Maritime Documentation Center is available to help you complete your filings, so that you can get up and running as soon as possible.

We also specialize in processing notice of claims for vessels. This allows a potential lien holder to file a notice of claim of lien on a documented vessel.
