Coast Guard Vessel Registry Changes When Your Life Changes

Did you recently go through some kind of massive life change and you aren’t sure how it applies to the Coast Guard vessel registry? Does it seem like you should do… something to update your status on the registry, yet you aren’t sure exactly what that might be? As a documented vessel owner, there are some life changes that, when they occur, have to be squared with the vessel registry. While this may sound like a bit of a chore, as with everything else related to vessel documentation, we make it as easy as possible at our site. 

What to Do When You Move 

Moving to a new home can be a momentous change. Updating your mailing address with so many can take quite a bit of time. However, doing so with the Coast Guard is easy. You can do so through the “Change of Address” form at our site. By that same token, when you move your vessel to a “new home,” we have the forms for that as well. Should you move your vessel to a new hailing port, you can fill out the corresponding form in minutes flat at our site. 

What to Do When You Decide to Change How You Use Your Vessel 

Did you purchase a vessel so as to transport people, but now decide you want to use it for cargo? Or, vice versa? Alternatively, did you buy a vessel just to have a good time but now realize you could use it to make some money? This kind of thing happens more often than you might think. When it does, you want to make use of the “Change of Endorsement/Trade Indicator” form at our site. That way, you can use your vessel how you want while staying in compliance with the powers that be. 

What to Do When You Bring on a New Owner 

Bringing someone in on co-owning your vessel with you can be exciting. Consequently, sometimes the best course of action in someone’s life is to move on from co-owning a vessel. Whenever something like that occurs, our “Transfer/Exchange” form can help to make it official. Remember: the “new owner” doesn’t have to be a “person” at all. It can be a corporation, a trust, and more. 

Everything You Need to Stay in Compliance with the Coast Guard Vessel Registry 

Those aren’t all of the life changes that involve a corresponding kind of vessel documentation. There are others. No matter what, you can find the forms you need right here at our site, in an easy to use and complete format. You needn’t worry about any small mistakes, either. Our document processors can catch them and fix them as quickly as possible. Should you require any further help, we have a trained, experienced, and highly qualified staff of professionals ready to answer your questions. In fact, if you’d like, they can walk you through any form step by step if you call (800) 535-8570 or fill out our contact form.
