Abstract Merchant Vessels of the United States is a data file of merchant and recreational vessels documented under the laws of the United States by the U.S. Coast Guard. The source for this file is the U.S. Coast Guard's Marine Safety Information System (MSIS) database, a comprehensive system serving many Coast Guard marine safety operating programs. The data file of merchant vessels has been specifically prepared from several data tables contained in MSIS. This data has been used as source data for publication of Merchant Vessels of the United States. The data file consists of vessel particular and managing owner identification information. For vessels, the file contains the vessel name, official number, managing owner name, particulars such as tonnage and length, port of documentation (homeport), and authorized trade endorsements. Hailing port, manufacturer identification and hull identification numbers are now included. Foreign vessels are not contained in this file. For managing owners, the complete mailing address is provided.
