Select the amount of years you would like automatic, annual processing of the renewal of your Certificate of Documentation. This will help you avoid costly Return to Active Documentation applications and removals from the USCG database. If you sell or transfer your vessel during this time, please send a notification to submissions@usvesseldocumentation.org and you will receive a prorated refund equal to the years that do not require renewal. If checked, you will receive a new Certificate of Documentation for your vessel for each year that you have prepaid that expires one year after process.
