The Merchant Vessels of the United States database lists all of the registered merchant and recreational vessels in the US. This file was last updated in July 2020. There have been a big change in the last few years in this database; unfortunately, one can no longer link directly to a vessel entry. The changes to the database mean that you must now search again, once you get to the database.
