About SVG Yacht registration

Saint Vincent Yacht registration
Saint Vincent Yacht registration

St Vincent and the Grenadines is one of the leading jurisdictions for the offshore registration of ships, yachts and pleasure craft. Most clients choose to first establish a SVG  offshore corporate entity (LLC/IBC) to own the ship or yacht. We would assist by forming that entity and then proceed to register the vessel with the maritime authorities.

In order to perform the process, we need from you following documents:

  • The  Application Form duly completed;
  • Letter as evidence of local registered agent of underlying company;
  • Bill of Sale (notarised);
  • Declaration of ownership (notarised);
  • Certificate of Deletion from previous registry;
  • Certificate of Survey;
  • Certificate of Incorporation of underlying IBC or LLC  in whose ame the ship will be registered;
  • Evidence of name and competency of present Master;
  • Abstract of Title;
  • Proof that vessel has a call sign issued by the regulatory authorities (“NTRC”) in St Vincent and the Grenadines.

The St. Vincent & the Grenadines Maritime Administration is administered by the Commissioner for Maritime Affaires, which has offices in Geneva and Monaco. The Registrar is resident in Kingstown.
