Bill of sale

When selling a vessel, you will need to provide a bill of sale to the buyer.

If you are selling your vessel, you will need to provide a bill of sale to the buyer. The bill of sale must include:

  • name and official number of the ship
  • natural and extent of the interest in the ship to which the bill of sale relates (how many shares are being transferred)
  • name and address of each transferor (the seller) and transferee (the buyer).

If you are the seller and are not selling your vessel under a corporate seal, you must sign the document and get it witnessed. An attorney under power may also sign on your behalf.

A correctly completed bill of sale form 159 will ensure that our requirements are met.
