BVI Registration Closure

I am in the process of registering our yacht as an Australian Ship, I need evidence of closure of BVI registration by previous owner. I have the I have the particulars papers from 3 years ago.

Virgin Islands Shipping Registry is not responding to emails or answering the phone.

Any help appreciated.

Re: BVI Registration Closure

You paid the final amount before the boat was de-flagged?

I don't think there's much you can do, its the flagged owner who de-flags.

Re: BVI Registration Closure

I'm sorry, I meant to respond to your prepurchase post. Could have saved you this headache.

Your broker should have guided you through this process. When I sold my last boat in Panama the funds were not released to me until I provided the AMSA paperwork needed by Norwegian shipping authority (new owners were Norwegian). The (Florida based) broker specialised in these transactions and was very professional

You going to need to beg or bribe help from the previous owner. It will be difficult to move the boat out of Panama until the paperwork situation is resolved.
