Isle of Man Yacht Registration

The Isle of Man is a self-governing Crown Dependency which is not part of the United Kingdom but forms part of the British Isles.

As a Category 1 British register, the Isle of Man is able to register vessels of all sizes.

The registry is able to accept privately operated yachts of any size and yachts used for charter over 24 metres in length.

Isle of Man, or Manx, registered ships are British ships. They are, however, under the separate jurisdiction of the Isle of Man Ship Registry which is part of the Isle of Man Department of Economic Development.


The Ports of Castletown, Douglas, Peel and Ramsey are the Isle of Man ports of registry, and the basic legislation governing yacht registration is the Merchant Shipping Registration Act, 1991.
