Vessel Recreational Endorsement

WikiTagsWikiShare


BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A recreational endorsement in USCG vessel documentation terms entitles a vessel to be used for pleasure or non-commercial usage. This includes bareboat charter or rental usage where the owner does not operate or captain the vessel.

Meaning


When a vessel is documented, the applicant must declare the type of endorsements being sought. Those which are not to be used for commercial purposes may choose the recreational endorsement. Any applicable endorsements are listed on a certificate of documentation which must be present on board whenever the vessel is operational.

Context


There is no requirement for vessel documentation if a vessel is to be used solely for recreational purposes. However, many such vessels are documented for mortgaging and other benefits.

Conclusion


Choosing the right endorsement is critical in order to avoid penalties and potential impoundments. Owners with any such concerns should consult with a maritime attorney or documentation professional.
