Will the Coast Guard Send a Notice for Renewal of My Documentation?

Yes, they will. The NVDC mails renewal CG-128 notices to the addresses of all managing owners. This is done 45 days before your Certificate of Documentation’s expiration date.

Through our site, you can renew your vessel for two, three, four, and up to five years at once. You can do so through our vessel documentation renewal form.

If the managing owner has changed, file for a Transfer/Exchange here.

If the address of the managing owner has changed, update it though this Change of Address or Vessel Name form.
