    Hello Sergey,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Please be advised that the vessel´s type is information we receive from the vessel´s transponder. So, in order to change the vessel's type, vessel owners or crew will need to update the vessel's transponder settings with the new details.

    Afterward, since we need to receive both static signals and positions from the vessel, the transponder will need to be kept active for a couple of days, so as for it to be transmitting the signals.
    Please rest assured that, as soon as our antenna collects the necessary amount of signals and positions, the new type and any other details will be automatically updated in our database.

    You can learn more about how we grab this information here: https://help.marinetraffic.com/hc/en-us/articles/205579997

    Regarding Length, Breadth, and Gross Tonnage, I recommend you suggest the details on the vessel´s page, by clicking on "Suggest updated values", as shown below:

    At your disposal,
