Re: Did you have to get a formal Tonnage Certificate?

The US is simple. I've owned two 47' Leopard cats, one sailing one power. One was deflagged from French and reflagged to US, the other was US flagged when constructed. No such nonsense with either. Note that only US citizens or companies controlled by US citizens may own a USCG documented vessel. US state registrations are available to anyone, just remember to pay the tax collectors.

Yachtworld has a 435, searching on her name (with a space - GYPSEA HORSE) yields a vessel with JMA92, that’s the only one I could find, and I think there’s more than one 435 model, but at least it gives you some dimensions and tonnage. Either way, if you search some cats you know you’ll see they all use simplified, which should give some confidence in going down that road.

Thanks. I found a half dozen or so, all "Simplified". Very comforting.

Found I had to search by HIN without the "FR" prefix shown on my boat's prior documentation.

Re: Did you have to get a formal Tonnage Certificate?

Hello RBCurtis,

I just received my Transport Canada registration using the simplified method this past week The rule is under 12 metres. The reason the cost is likely higher is the fact that the surveyor must be certified by Transport Canada.
The regulation is quite silly as your yacht may never see Canadian waters. They should simply accept the builders report.

Good luck with your adventures and congratulations on your purchase.

Robert
