What is the vessel documentation renewal process?

The vessel documentation renewal process begins with filing an Application for Renewal of Documentation (Form CG-1258). This form can be found here .

This must be done every single year. Failure to do so can result in penalties, loss of certain privileges, and worse.

Through our site, vessel owners can renew their documentation for up to five years in advance.
