Initial, Renewal, and Reinstatement of Coast Guard Boat Registration

Dealing with Coast Guard boat registration can quickly get fairly stressful, but it doesn’t have to be if you have the proper guidance throughout. Let’s go over what the different processes related to registration can consist of.

Ins and Outs of Boat Registration

Now, you probably hear the words “boat registration” and you’re already rolling your eyes and dreading the long lines and waiting periods that you’ll have to put up with. Well, don’t worry, because this doesn’t have to be a four-hour visit to the DMV. In fact, it can actually be done from the comfort of your home. Here at the Maritime Documentation Center, we want to make sure that your journey to get your documentation in order is fairly easy and straightforward. So, we are here to guide you through this process, providing you with all the necessary forms, platforms, and payment mechanisms for you to get everything in order in a prompt manner. So, let’s go into how to make use of them accordingly.

Take Care of Your Initial Registration

So, the first process that you will probably have to engage with is the process for initial Coast Guard boat registration. Now, this will be a mandatory thing for commercial vessels if they wish to operate legally and in order. This is what the registration is for. It allows vessels to operate commercially and for the owner to make a legal and administrative claim for the ownership of the vessel. As with any mandatory administrative process, this can often get needlessly complicated. That is why we make sure that all the forms are readily available to you and that you can easily submit them through our own platform. All you will need to submit the form appropriately will be proof of ownership, information about the vessel, and your contact data to tie the registration to you.

Renew or Reinstate it

Now, even if you have already received your documentation, you will still have to worry about it every now and then. When? Well, whenever you have to renew it or reinstate it. Now, what does this mean? Well, if your registration is expiring soon or has expired within the last thirty days, you can submit the form for Coast Guard boat registration renewal in order to make sure that it soon is once again valid. However, if it does expire, then you will need to go through a different process: the reinstatement one. Either process can be easily applied through our platform. The forms are all available here, and they’ll go straight to the Maritime Administration.
