Mortgage Lien Release and Other Financing Forms in One Place

Have you paid off the mortgage on your vessel and aren’t sure what the next step is? Or, alternatively, are you looking to file to get financing for your vessel in the first place? We know how confusing getting a mortgage on your vessel can be. That’s just one of the reasons that we offer the forms you’ll need to stay in compliance with the powers that be. When the time is right, you can file for a mortgage lien release and so much more right here. 

Preferred Ship’s Mortgage: the Preferred Way to Get a Ship’s Mortgage for Years 

Is it time to apply for a mortgage on your vessel? If so, then click on the “Pref. Ship Mortgage” form at our site. One thing to keep in mind: we run a vessel documentation site and not a bank. We’re not lawyers, we can’t give legal advice, or anything like that. So, we can’t tell you whether or not the mortgage is on the level, going to happen, and so forth. What we can do is to make it easier for you to access and complete this form, which will then be promptly sent to the proper authorities. 

Mortgage Lien Release: For When You Pay It Off 

You’ve probably heard this before, but there’s a very old saying about vessel ownership. It goes something like: “the two best days owning a vessel are the day you buy it and the day you sell it.” That’s a bit droll, but we would add that the third “best day” would be the day that you pay off the mortgage. For many, this is the moment when the vessel is truly “their’s,” free and clear. Should you have done such a thing, you can file for this here. Too. 

To Qualify for Financing in the First Place 

Of course, to get a mortgage in the first place, you have to document your vessel. Indeed, a strong majority of banks and other lenders won’t even offer a mortgage if your vessel isn’t first documented. While that may sound a bit intimidating, it isn’t supposed to be. We make it easy to fill out the initial documentation and then receive it quickly. Additionally, you can renew it quickly through our site as well. 

An Easier Way to File All of These Forms 

We understand that for many folks, no matter how they use their vessel, the idea of sitting in front of their home computer filling out vessel documentation forms is not their idea of time well spent. So, we made sure that our site is “optimized for mobile.” That means that you can fill out these forms from practically anywhere and on any device, so long as you’re connected to the internet. Additionally, if you have any questions about these forms or even want something to walk you through them, step by step, we have a highly-trained and qualified staff on hand. You can reach them at (866) 981-8783.
