HOW DOES IT WORK?
STEP 1 - You will get via us an official UK address and representative and we will create a dormant UK LTD. (company) with you as owner(s). As the LTD. is only used for owning a boat you will not need to pay any taxes or do any government filings.
* A bill of sale will have to be signed to transfer ownership of your yacht to your new UK Ltd. We will make this bill of sale for you or you can make your own.
STEP 2 – YOU NEED TO PROVIDE US WITH SOME DOCUMENTS
- Certificate of survey for tonnage and measurement will be needed, but can be done in your own home country, as long as you use an affiliated surveyor as per below.
For vessels up to 24 meters any of the following surveyors can be used. (American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Bureau Veritas (BV), Det Norske Veritas (DNV), Germanischer Lloyd (GL), Lloyd' s Register (LR), Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (NKK), Registro Italiano Navale (RINA) ).
For longer vessels and commercial vessels a ITC69 and/or the Coding Certificate will be needed.
- Deletion certificate if your boat was previously on another register, and proof of title evidence for the last 5 years, meaning that you need to prove who owned the vessel for the past 5 years. (New boats need the MCO).
- Copy of radio call sign (if you have one)
- Authorization letter signed by you that authorizes us to register your vessel (letter provided by us)
- Copy of your passport
You send us the above paperwork and as soon as we receive these we will start registering your vessel and you will receive your official registration back from us by DHL overnight courier!
