Have you been attempting to do a boat licence transfer with Transport Canada but finding it difficult? Is your personal and registration data safety an important aspect for you? You can never be too safe when it comes to your personal information on the internet. Every day, it seems, there’s another hacker tale, another breach of people’s personal information, and so on. At the National Vessel Registry Center Corp., we offer digital boat license transfer services with the highest standard of encryption in order to make sure that doesn’t happen. Offering the greatest care in safeguarding and handling information is only the beginning of what we have to offer to boat owners.
What’s the Difference Between a Vessel License and a Vessel Registration?
It’s important to understand that when owning a boat, it is not possible to both register and license your vessel. Depending on the characteristics and intended purpose of the vessel, you must choose either one or the other. If you own a non-pleasure vessel with at least a 10 horsepower or 7.5 kW engine, for example, you must register it.
If you own a pleasure craft, you have the option of registering the vessel, although it is not compulsory. Many owners of pleasure ships prefer to register their vessels because it is free and comes with a number of benefits. If you don’t, you’ll have to pay $250 for a license. When you get your license number, make sure to put it on each side of the bow, above the water level, so it’s visible.The numbers should be a contrast to the bow’s color.
You’ll be fined a lot of money if you’re found travelling the waterways without a licence or if your boat isn’t registered. As a result, you must always ensure that you are licensed and that you have supporting documentation onboard, such as a bill of sale to establish ownership.
Easily Get Through a Difficult Process
You think of freedom when you think about boating. The boundless sea, the wind in your hair, and the anxieties of a distant place. You usually don’t think of sailing as being associated with paperwork. The truth is that boat ownership entails a significant amount of responsibility, and as such, there are certain documents that must be kept up-to-date. The registration of your yacht is a crucial component of such paperwork.
The typical approach would be to start by locating the proper forms to fill out. After that, you’ll need to gather any necessary supporting documentation. You’ll need to package your application and take it to the post office after making a check for the required cost. If you’re a busy person, this may appear to be a time-consuming chore. Fortunately, we offer a safe, practical alternative.
Using a 3rd Party Encrypted Service
Using a third-party service from an online source allows you to save time that may be better spent doing things you enjoy. For someone who just wants to get out and sail, spending days studying and seeking out the necessary forms is time consuming and stressful. This is why filing portals such as ours strive to provide a user-friendly experience that allows you to proceed through the procedure with minimal frustration. Filling out your information should be a breeze using online formats like ours.
