Anacortes Marine Documentation LLC



USCG Documentation is the only form of registration in the United States that provides a history of all owners of the vessel, from 1st registration.  If Documented when the vessel was brand new, this provides an unparalleled chain of ownership, including build evidence from the original builder’s certificate.  USCG Documentation provides a ship’s registration that is recognized internationally, and flagging as a US vessel.


For many owners, Coast Guard Documentation is not an option, or you may have questions regarding Coast Guard Documentation and State Registration requirements.  We are well versed in registering and titling in Washington and all States across the US.  Each State is unique as they have different requirements for vessel registration and titling.  We can offer assistance and guidance for what best suits your needs.


We have the experience to provide timely filing of renewals with USCG.  Let us take care of this annually, or with the new option of a 5 year Certificate, so you can rest assured your USCG Document will not expire, and you will have the ship’s papers that you need while cruising.
