Registering Your Yacht

Sarnia has registered thousands of yachts, for all types of owners. Every owner and every yacht is unique, just as every flag state is different. This is where Sarnia’s in-depth working knowledge of the marine industry comes into play.

We will consider the vessel’s VAT status and the owner’s nationality, residency and operational and cruising plans. Plus other factors such as the tonnage and length of the yacht and whether the vessel is new or previously owned.

As you’d expect, we regularly work with the ship registry offices in the main flag states. Sarnia will work out the best location to register each yacht.

Certificate of Registry

Once we’ve made our recommendations, Sarnia oversees the whole registration process from start to finish. We will provide the Certificate of Registry and all other relevant documents; all you need to do is plan your first voyage.

We are a team of specialists, committed to quality, integrity, professionalism and client service
