See our most common questions related to the Guernsey boat registration.
Boat can be owned by a single person, or a vessel may distribute up to 64 shares among itself. Shares may be owned singly or in blocks of up to 64 shares. One share or block of shares may be jointly owned by a maximum of five individuals.
Once the Registry has approved the required papers, official marking guidelines will be released. The boat must be marked with the following information: the official number (given by the Registry), or gross tonnage, the boat's name, and the port of registry.
The Registrar will schedule an inspection if the ship is in Guernsey when the marking is complete. If not, you must provide the Register with photographic confirmation.
If the Registrar is convinced that the yacht has been marked in accordance with Registry regulations, the Certificate of British Registry, also known as the "blue book," will be provided.
Recreational boats must undergo an initial inspection before they can be registered and subsequently undergo periodic inspections.
Commercially registered boats must also undergo inspections to ensure compliance with safety regulations and standards.
Commercial sailing licenses are required for those who wish to operate a boat for commercial purposes, such as for transporting passengers or goods.
