46 U.S. Code § 12135 - Invalidation of certificates of documentation
A certificate of documentation or an endorsement on the certificate is invalid if the vessel for which it is issued—

(2) is placed under the command of an individual not a citizen of the United States in violation of section 12131 of this title.

In paragraph (2), the words “except for a recreational endorsement” are omitted as unnecessary because a recreational endorsement does not permit a vessel to engage in a trade.
