You may need to register your vessel with a flag state.
For example, in the United Kingdom a Pleasure Vessel or a Pleasure Vessel in Commercial Use would be registered under British Part I registration.
A wide range of persons and companies are eligible to apply:
The primary aim of registering under Part I is proof of title. As such, a marine mortgage can be attached to the registration. When purchasing a registered yacht, it is possible to buy a ‘Transcript of Registry’ for that yacht, designed to show the true owner(s) and whether there is any other registered interest. Tonnage measurement can be performed to put the boat on part 1 of the British Register. This work is done under the auspices of theYDSA, IIMS and MECAL.
We can measure for all Red Ensign States (Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Gibraltar, Isle of Man, UK, Anguilla, BVI’s, Falklands, Guernsey, Jersey, Montserrat, St Helena, Turks & Caicos Islands).
