Hello guys,

My name is Alessandro, i live in Italy.

Im about to purchase a motoryacht which is registered in Uk under the British Registry.

The boat will be shipped to USA to charter and will be registered in the US Registry (we'll pay 1.5% duty + 6% registration).

My question is: do i need to cancel the registration from UK registry ? Before or after the purchase ? Before or after the new registration in the US ?

Or do i need to update the UK registration under my name and cancel previous owner (the seller) ???

Thanks very much

In order to register in the US you will have to obtain a certificate of deletion from the UK

Sent from an undisclosed location on the high seas or from the lounge chair by the pool, you decide.
To a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Get in touch with the British Registry of Ships and Seamen in Cardiff. They are very helpful. A bit of googling brought up this form:
