U.S. Vessel Documentation, the online portal for Coast Guard documentation in the United States, has announced completion of a comprehensive overhaul of its service website.
The latest changes are designed to streamline the process of registering boats in a way that is unrivaled in the maritime industry in terms of speed and ease of use. The service now covers all of the most vital registration forms for commercial and recreational vessels.
Before Founder Captain John Soria digitized the documentation process, yacht and shipping vessel owners would have to pore through piles of paperwork, and in many cases would have to submit necessary documents to various agencies.
What was once a drawn-out process, website makes for faster-than-ever times for getting a recreational or commercial vessel up to date with required documentation with the U.S. Coast Guard, and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The service seamlessly covers a wide range of the daunting Coast Guard paperwork such as vessel documentation renewals, abstracts of title, initial documentation, exchange of certificate of documentation, reinstatement, certified copy, replacement of documentation, deletion, change of vessel name/hailing port, change of endorsement/trade indicator, ship preferred mortgage notice of claim of lien, and MARAD small vessel waiver.
The site also provides pre-paid, automatic documentation renewal submissions.
Security issues have been re-fortified considerably. Updates to the site now make for secure submissions through encryption of all documents containing sensitive ownership information. As a result, key information will never be compromised during the simplified submission process.
In addition, the newest version of USCGDocumentation.us is mobile-friendly and fully-responsive to all Internet-enabled devices.
Input fields are easily navigable on smart phones and tablets, and the new system uploads all scanned and digitized documents in a safe and secure fashion.
The newly-revamped design and technical features will ensure that user payment information and identities are protected through multiple encryption layers.
