Question Question for an Ozzy

What procedures do you have to go threw to document your vessels. Or maybe I should just ask for a link to your Coast Guard or a source of documentation.

In a few years I'll be heading to the South Pacific region and have considered buying my next vessel in AU. I'll be spending most of my time in the Philippines but will probably head for AU or NZ for the cyclone season.

I figure there would be fewer problems with travel in that region with an AU documentation. Don't know? What do you think?

Just trying to plan ahead.

Send a message via ICQ to Mercator
Here in Aus we are controlled by a number of authorities.

Each State has its own authorities, Victoria, where I live, the main one is Marine Safety Victoria - http://www.marinesafety.vic.gov.au/

Most private vessels are registered in their home state for local waters if they are not planning to sial or leave National waters.

Vessels leaving Aus need to obtain National Registration

For Nationally registered boats/ships the Australian Maritime Safety AuthorityAMSA maintains the Registra and controls such things as National SAR providing you have DSC enabled HF

We do not have a National Coast Guard as you have in the States, local areas have their own Volunteer Coast Guards for small boating.

All entry into Australia by land or sea is controlled by the Australian Customs Office and there are customs offices at most major ports.

Entry and berthing at public berths usually come under the control of the local Ports and Harbours authorities.

Hope this is of help

In 1998 I imported a Yankee 30 in to Aus, it cost 1/3 of the apraised value of the boat less a couple of thousand for transportaion costs. A friend of the family recomended a "freindly" boat surveyer who valued the boat on the lower side of market value which helped a great deal. I hired an importer for 400$ who did all the paper work (highly recomended) after all the dust cleared I had bought the boat for $20,000Au (empty) and sold it for $43,000Au (with cruising gear) after 3 years of sailing. It sold to the first people who looked at it as there are so few 2nd hand boats there. Hope this helped.

Question "few 2nd hand boats there"

I've been monitoring several sites in Oz & Nz and have found plenty to my satisfaction. Maybe it is just in the area you are in? Here are some samples below.
