How to Find a Yacht Named Determination (Or Any Other Yacht That’s Documented)

To find a yacht named “Determination” or any other yacht (provided that it has been documented with the United States Coast Guard, use this link to conduct a boat documentation search at our site. 

This search provides information about the vessel such as its name, Hull Identification Number (HIN), Official Number (ON), service information (endorsement and more), tonnage information, build year, and other information. Additionally, this search includes when the vessel’s Certificate of Documentation was issued and when it will expire. 

That will provide you with the yacht’s name and other information but it will not provide you with the yacht’s owner. To find that, use this form to apply for an An Abstract of Title

An Abstract of Title will include the managing owner of a documented yacht as well as the ownership history of a yacht and the status of any encumbrances/liens on the yacht.

Another way to find the managing owner’s name and address is through a Certified Copy of a Certificate of Documentation. Anyone can use this link to obtain a Certified Copy of a CUnited States Coast Guard Certificate of Documentation.

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.
