How Can I Find Who Owned My Yacht Before Me?

To find a documented vessel’s chain of ownership, use this form to apply for a USCG Abstract of Title

An Abstract of Title will include the ownership history of the vessel and the status of any encumbrances/liens on the vessel. 

If you have further questions about American vessel documentation, contact the Vessel Registrar Center at or (800) 535-8570 Monday-Friday, 8 AM to 4:30 PM.
