https://www.uscg.mil/d13/cfvs/PDFs/DSC_MMSI.pdf

After a vessel is sold or transferred, the seller/transferor must contact the FCC to cancel the
license (if the vessel was individually licensed) or contact its private registration agent to cancel the
MMSI (if it was licensed by rule). If the vessel was individually licensed, the buyer/transferee must file
an application for a new ship station license and, in connection with that application, may ask the FCC to
reassign the MMSI from the cancelled license to the new license. If the vessel was licensed by rule, the
buyer/transferee may ask the private registration agent for reassignment of the MMSI that had been
assigned to the seller/transferor....

For further information, contact Ghassan Khalek of the Mobility Division, Wireless
Telecommunications Bureau, at (202) 418-2771, TTY (202) 418-7233, or ghassan.khalek@fcc.gov.

Interesting. Next time -- a long time from now -- I'll try it.
