The United States Coast Guard no longer provides NOAA Fisheries with vessel ownership information. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please direct any questions regarding current ownership to the USCG National Vessel Documentation Center:
NOAA Fisheries will continue to provide historic vessel name and ownership data where available.
Vessel Documentation Search By ID
You can access
our copy of the United States Coast Guard's (USCG)
vessel data base and extract
vessel characteristic, documentation, and ownership
data (please read our data
caveats page). This data base is updated on a monthly
basis. Our query program only retrieves data about
vessels which are craft that are 5 net tons or
larger and are documented by the USCG. Craft less than
5 net tons ("boats") are numbered by individual states. Refer
to our data caveats page for
information about who collects vessel documentation data,
the type of data collected and for the authorization and
rationale for publishing these data.
Contact the USCG
Vessel Documentation Center for vessel title and lien information. If
you would like to obtain a copy of the USCG's list of documented
Vessels of the United States," purchase information is listed in the "Frequently
Asked Questions " at the documentation center's web site.
