Registration Renewal

UKSR Watermark


If you have received a reminder to renew your vessel registration you can do this online, provided you follow the claim your vessel process first.

Once your application to claim has been successful you will be able to renew your vessel online. Depending on your vessel type you may be required to provide additional information such as certificates of survey or safety.

You can only renew a vessel if you have already been the registered owner with the UK Ship Register.

If you have recently purchased the vessel and are not the registered owner on the UKSR you must contact the registry to complete a transfer of ownership.

The renewal fee depends on which part of the registry your vessel is with. 

Once you have renewed your registration your certificate will be valid for a further five years from the date of renewal.
