Do I Need a Title for My Documented Vessel?


You do not need a title for Coast Guard documented vessels. 

Instead, these vessels hold Certificates of Documentation. 

Due to Federal law, as State registration is superseded by Federal Documentation, no documented vessel can have State title. 

Some documented vessels may also register in a state, should the state require that. Check with the state your vessel is in to learn more.
