Irish resident in Canada buying sailboat boat registered in South Africa. Help!

Hello! I'm Irish and I want to buy a South African registered boat while I am in Canada. The boat has not been registered to Canada, and I am struggling to find information on what to do regarding the change of ownership form. I cannot do it in Canada as I am not a resident of Canada. I have rang South African Sailing and SAMSA, but their replies were vague in what to do next. Has anyone on here been in a similar situation? Or can anyone give advice on where to go about obtaining a change of ownership form?

Thank you!

Why not have stipulated in the sales contract that the seller must supply the Certificate of Withdrawal on delivery? You have one thing less to worry about and can focus on the registration in another flag state.
