Our Relationship to the Coast Guard Boat Registration Database

At the Maritime Documentation Center, we are not the Coast Guard Boat Registration Database. However, we do make interacting with that database easier. We can help with plenty of the functions that can make working with the Coast Guard to get your documentation that much simpler to deal with. If you think of the Coast Guard (and specifically, their documentation process) as something difficult that you have to deal with (like say, your taxes) then our job is kind of like being accountants: we make sure that you only pay for what you have to, and do so in the easiest way possible.

Best Access to Coast Guard Boat Registration Database

You don’t have to worry about going through the Coast Guard and all their hard to access forms and more. Our site makes access simple. The days of having to print out or acquire a form, fill it out, and then mail it in are all long gone. Instead, you can just fill out the form at our site, press a few buttons, and we’ll pass them right along to the Coast Guard. In fact, you can even choose to have “Priority Request” and “Rush Processing.” That means that we’ll get your forms to the Coast Guard faster, so that you can get the documentation you’re looking for faster still.

Best Forms of Access

If you go through the Coast Guard themselves, then you have to remember to renew your documentation every year. If you don’t do it at just the right time, you could lose or waste money, or even lose your documentation. We’ve built a service where you don’t have to worry about any of that. When you get your documentation through us, you can choose to renew it for up to five years. That means that you can get all of the documentation you need, in a legally binding fashion, without having to worry about it. With this one thing cleared off of your plate, you can focus on what’s most important. It’s just one more way that we can make the entire documentation process that much easier on you.

That means that you can open our site wherever you are, provided that you have an internet connection. So, you can check our site if you’re out running chores, in line at the bank, or even out on your vessel. Many of us (as we’re also vessel owners) have spent too much time hunched over a desk, filling out documentation by hand, in meticulous handwriting. That’s all over with.
