Vessel Documentation is a federal form of vessel registration which is offered only to United States citizens for vessels of 5 net tons or more and is recognized internationally as a certificate of ownership and nationality. Pleasure vessels of 5 net tons or more may be documented or registered through the state; however, commercial vessels of 5 net tons or more must be documented. Typically yachts measuring 26 feet or longer measure 5 net tons or more. In addition, documented vessels are protected by the United States and if stolen will fall under federal jurisdiction rather than state or local law enforcement.
