About Our Services
An overview of our vessel documentation and boat registration services.
Introduction - MarineTitle.com is the nation's
leading resource for U.S. Coast Guard vessel documentation and state
level boat registration services. This includes our BoatScope database, which is the most comprehensive boat record and
history search tool available to the boating public. You
will also find boat closing settlement services which are offered
through our full-service boat documentation and titling affiliate.
Self-services - Our self-service kits are the first of their kind with respect to vessel documentation and boat titling. These easy to use packages are immediately accessible from our web site and contain all necessary forms, instructions, examples, and other resources to accomplish the task at hand. They are ideal for the economy minded and can save up to several hundred dollars in professional service fees.
Full-Services - We are an internet based enterprise and our products are designed exclusively for online usage. In order to facilitate a complete range of services, we have formed an alliance with a full-service documentation company that can offer personalized assistance. A corresponding option is included with most of our service listings which will facilitate full-service quotations.
Vessel Documentation - A complete range of Coast Guard vessel documentation services can be found in our service listings. These include initial documentation, re-documentation, status changes, ownership transfers, certificate replacement, and documentation removal services. All offerings are available as economical self-service kits or you can enjoy the convenience of full-services from our vessel documentation company affiliate.
Preferred Mortgages - Preferred vessel mortgage and supplemental filings are offered as stand alone services or in conjunction with other packages. Supplemental filings consist of mortgage amendments, assignments, assumptions, subordinations, and release instruments. As with all of our services, these are available in economical self-service kits or as convenient full-services.
Lien Clam Notices - Lien claim notifications of a maritime nature can be filed against any vessel that is actively documented with the U.S. Coast Guard. These include services, supplies, and other necessaries for which payment has not been made. Such recordings can be implemented by using one of our self-service kits or through our full-service affiliate.
State Boat Registration - Nationwide state level registration and titling services for all types of watercraft are available from our web site. Our self-service kits include all of the necessary forms, instructions, links, and other resources needed to implement such filings. Start to finish assistance by a title specialist can also be obtained by choosing the respective full-service option.
Title Research - Boat title and lien research is a necessary element in some of our services. Our self-service kits will therefore contain the applicable instructions, links, and other resources for implementing such research. In the case of full-services, a title specialist will conduct the necessary research on your behalf and apply such findings as required.
Abstracts of Title - Ownership, lien, and mortgage research on documented vessels is implemented by obtaining an abstract of title from the U.S. Coast Guard. Our self-service kits and full-services will accordingly address such needs when applicable. Self-service and full-service options are also available for vessel abstracts of title on a stand-alone basis.
Boat Settlement Service - Boat closing settlement services are available from our full-service vessel titling affiliate. These are handled in such a way that the buyer's funds are never at risk due to commingling or conversions. A title specialist will gather up all considerations from both the buyer and seller for exchange at the time of closing. This service can be utilized in conjunction with other documentation and titling services.
BoatScope Database - Our BoatScope database service provides information on Coast Guard documented vessels and historical data for boats which have been auctioned, stolen, salvaged, or involved in law enforcement actions. It also contains resources for obtaining record-print outs from every state and facilitates owner mailing lists for documented vessels.
