In October 2008, we began transacting business under the name "Atlantic Yacht Documentation".
Atlantic Yacht Documentation can provide you with fast professional and experienced service, which makes documenting your vessel, a true pleasure. Our staff members have over 25 years of industry experience, and are eager to answer any questions you may have regarding the documentation process.
Atlantic Yacht Documentation operates on the vessel owner's behalf to expedite the issuance of a U.S.C.G. Certificate of Documentation. The regulations governing federal vessel documentation date back to the 11th Act of the First Congress, making it one of the oldest functions of our government.
Since 1920, marine financing has been greatly enhanced through the availability of a preferred ship's mortgage. This type of lien provides lending institutions with the strongest sense of security in their collateral, in turn reducing overall risk and allowing them to lend more money to more boaters. These days, many if not most lenders, agree that a boat should be documented if it meets the U.S.C.G. criteria to do so.
Atlantic Yacht Documentation stays current with legislation governing the marine industry as well as the ever-changing procedures and policies associated with communicating with the Coast Guard. We are also members of the National Marine Bankers Association (NMBA).
