Intention to register a ship

If you acquire a vessel you wish to register, and you do not know its full ownership history, you must lodge a notice of intention to register to be published on our website.

The notice of intention must be submitted 30 days before you apply for registration of the vessel.

To allow for possible appeals, an application for registration cannot be processed until 30 days from the date of publication of your notice.

The details contained in the Notice of intention to register will be published on our website for 30 days. This allows any former owners to notify us of any claim they may have to the vessel.
