Vessel Documentation: Lease Financing for Vessels Engaged in the Coastwise Trade
Document Number: E6-17037
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-10-18
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard amends its regulations for documenting lease- financed vessels that have a ``coastwise endorsement'' (i.e., vessels used in trade and passenger service within the U.S. or between U.S. ports and those used in dredging and towing in U.S. waters). The vessels affected by this proposal are owned by foreign owned or controlled U.S. companies, where there is a ``demise charter'' to a U.S. citizen (i.e., an agreement for the charterer to assume responsibility for operating, crewing, and maintaining the vessel as if the charterer owned it).
