HIN Decoder Details for MPC00332M79I:

Our HULL ID Decoder breaks down the Hull identification number into the following information:

The HIN or CIN you have entered meets the Model-Year HIN format. It might also be a type that contains the country code and thus the boat comes from USA or Other . The serial number of the HIN is 00332 and is set by the boat builder. This boat or vessel has a Certification Date of (1979) and a Model Year of 1979 with month of build (April) based on the formatting of your hull_identification_number (HIN) .

The manufacturer identification code (MIC) of your craft identification number (CIN or HIN) is MPC. This MIC (MPC) stands for the company name Mainship Corp which is currently Out of Business. This boat manufacturer has other company names (MPC sometimes goes by these name(s) Luhrs, , , or ). This could happen if the US Coast Guard reissued the MIC to a new company after one went out of business.
