The Office of Commercial Vessel Compliance has announced the publication of the 2018 Domestic Annual Report.

The report highlights, U.S. domestic fleet deficiencies, inspections, and marine casualty statistics and serves as a powerful tool to study trends, identify key performance indicators, and bring attention to issues in the fleet.

The report presents information reflecting the entire U.S. Flag fleet, including barges, cargo vessels, passenger vessels, vessels operating on the Outer Continental Shelf, research and school ships, fishing vessels, and the newest members of the inspected fleet, towing vessels.

A few key findings discussed in the report are:

  • Coast Guard marine inspectors conducted 20,048 inspections on 19,679 U.S. flag vessels, and documented 25,324 deficiencies.
  • There were 1,946 reportable marine casualty investigations in 2018 involving 1,812 vessels.
  • In 2018 there were 40 valid Flag State detentions.
