Isle of Man Register (Part III)
The fishing vessel register is available only for locally owned and operated fishing vessels. There are two types of registration available: ‘simple’ for those that do not require a mortgage to be registered against the vessel and ‘full’ for any that do.
All fishing vessels require a survey before registration in the Isle of Man (please see our fishing vessel survey page for further information).
If the vessel is already registered elsewhere, this registration must be closed prior to registration on the Manx register. To evidence this, a deletion certificate will be required, showing ‘nil encumbrances’ or no mortgages outstanding.
The forms and documents required for registration can be found below:
