Registering a vessel in an offshore registry requires that
the owner of the vessel be a citizen of that country. If the
individual applicant does not qualify as a citizen, arrangements
can be made for a corporation to be set up in that country to
own the vessel. For those contemplating an offshore registry,
they should consult with their tax advisor or attorney to
discuss the benefits of Sales Tax, VAT, Luxury Tax and Crew
Most registries require proof of citizenship, a Tonnage Survey and if previously registered in a national registry, a Deletion Certificate . The registry process can take 2 - 3 weeks. The costs of the offshore registry vary widely due to the surveying process and the size of the boat. We would be happy to obtain a quote for anyone wishing to contact us in advance.
