How can I find a vessel’s owner?

The Abstract of Title is a document that records all owners of a vessel, as well as the vessel’s USCG documentation. To find the owner of a boat with an Abstract of Title, start by looking at the registration numbers on the document. These will provide information about the USCG documentation for the vessel and can be used to obtain further details from official sources such as the Coast Guard or other regulatory bodies. The Abstract of Title may also include contact information for previous owners, which can be used to get in touch if necessary.
