For a re-sold vessel which already holds the registration documents from the port it has initially been registered to, theOriginal Bill of sale signed by the vendorwill be required. Where the Original Bill of Sale has been executed outside Gibraltar, we would require it authenticated by a Public Notary to ensure the registration process runs as smoothly and quickly as possible. The original/certified copy of the deletion certificate issued from the previous registry is also required.
We willalso ensure that the right survey is being undertaken to the specifications of your vessel (either the Tonnage Measurement Survey for vessel under 24m or the International Tonnage Survey – for vessels over 24 m).
We will assist with engaging the best classification soceity to commission the survey – either one of the approved societies (American Bureau of Shipping, Bureau Veritas, Det Norske Veritas, Germanischer Lloyd, Lloyd’s Register of Shipping, RINA, etc.) or, for vessels under 24m, one of the appointed certifying authorities, authorized to undertake surveys for Gibraltar registrations (Yacht Brokers, Designers & Surveyors Association, MECAL Limited, The Society of Consulting Marine Engineers & Ship Surveyors, International Institute of Marine Surveying).
