What is the National Vessel Documentation Center (NVDC)?

Do you have a vessel and aren’t sure entirely which forms of vessel documentation are right for it? Have you been wondering just what a National Vessel Documentation Center (NVDC) is and how it can help you? When it comes to boat documentation in the United States, it can be a bit confounding. Even if you’ve spent your entire life on the water, in and around boats, the documentation process itself can seem onerous and difficult. That’s where we come in. 

Our NVDC is essentially built around the idea of empowering vessel owners. We don’t believe that anyone should have to spend hours and hours filling out vessel documentation only to have it sent back to them due to a few typos or some other minor detail. Our goal is to streamline vessel documentation for vessel owners from all walks of life. We can do so in a variety of ways. 

A Place for Vessel Owners

You shouldn’t have to hunt all over the internet for one vessel documentation form or another. We have put the majority of the forms that vessel owners may need all in one place. That way, we can serve as a kind of “one-stop-shop” if you will for boat documentation. Many of our clients come for one form or another (an abstract of title, an initial registration, and so forth) only to come back to us time and again for further documentation throughout the course of vessel ownership. 

While we’re proud to offer an easier way to access the forms, we offer more than just streamlined access – we offer education, too. The more vessel owner knows about vessel documentation, the better informed they are, and the better the likelihood that they’ll make the best decisions for their vessel. Thus, you can find plenty of information on our site, too, about each form, who’s eligible for it, who isn’t, how it can help, and so forth. 

Why We Started Our NVDC 

Simply put, because, as many of us are vessel owners ourselves, we searched throughout the internet and couldn’t find one site that did everything we believed vessel owners deserved. Some may offer access to a few forms, while others may have had plenty of forms but lacked proper security, and so forth. In a real way, our site takes the best of other sites to provide vessel owners with the best possible experience. 

What is National Vessel Documentation Center (NVDC) and How It Can Help 

For starters, we know that, when it comes to vessel documentation, most people want to be able to fill out these forms as quickly and as easily as possible. Thus, we expedite the process so that you can do exactly that. 

One of the first benefits most notice about our site is that it’s been optimized for mobile devices. So, you don’t have to worry about spending hours on end sitting at your desktop hammering away at these forms until they’re finally done. Mobile optimization gives vessel owners freedom. You have the freedom to fill out these forms how and where you would like. You can fill them out on your phone while at the bank, at work, at the harbor, or even on your boat. When you have a moment, you can utilize it to fill out these forms. That way, you can fit filling out your vessel documentation into your schedule (as opposed to changing your entire schedule just to fill these forms out). 

Moreover, we also offer other services which set us apart from the rest. We understand that, for many vessel owners, time truly is of the essence. Thus, for a majority of our forms, rush processing/priority requests are available. That way, you can ensure that you go to the front of the queue. 

We also understand that, when you do fill out these forms, it’s entirely possible that you may have a typo here or there. That’s fine. We don’t believe such a thing should slow you from getting the documentation you want when you want it. Thus, we have document processors on site who can go through your forms, fix them, and make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
