Obtaining a US Coastguard Dissolution Document

We are in the process of registering a yacht on the Australian Shipping Register after having bought it in Florida. The documents sent together with the correct application forms which we received from the selling agent are the certificate of documentation (from the US Coast Guard), Bill of Sale (from the US Coast Guard), Notice of Sale (Florida Highways dept) and Warranty of Title.

Shipping registration people in Australia say they also want a Dissolution Document. The selling agent isn't prepared to follow this up for us. Any ideas on how we can obtain a Dissolution Document?

BTW this is not difficult. You don't need to hire anyone, and if you have a normal sales contract the seller is required to provide the vessel without any liens or encumbrances, and this (I think) is covered under the latter category. If they give you a hard time, you can fill out the form (it is simple) and send them a PDF to print and sign/submit. It really should not be daunting or troubling to anyone.

I do not think anyone is answering the question.

What needs to be done by previous owner is execute an "Application, Consent, And Approval For Withdrawal Of Application For Documentation Or Exchange Of Certificate Of Documentation (CG-4593)" http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/nvdc/forms/cg4593.pdf

The issue is that when the intent of the new owner is to register the vessel in another country, most all countries have a "de-listing" methodology and form to be completed. Almost all countries insist on proof of "de-listing" before they will register...that way, you can only register a vessel in one country. The buyers agent should have insisted on this at closing...no form, no money...then things become simple.

I think/believe that this form needs to be executed by the previous owner. However, if the previous owner executed the "SALE OR TRANSFER OF VESSEL" on the reverse of the US Certificate of Documentation, then the new owner can execute the above form and it will get the vessel removed from US documentation and satisfy the new country.

I hope this helps.

Best,

Bill
