Jersey Yacht Registration

The Channel Islands are situated approximately 14 miles off the Northwest coast of France and are made up of two administrative jurisdictions, or Bailiwicks, Jersey & Guernsey. The Bailiwick of Guernsey includes the Islands of Alderney Sark & Herm.

There are no formal links between the two Bailiwicks although they both share the same relationship with the United Kingdom (UK) and Europe. They are both part of the British Isles but not of the UK and as such, are dependent on the Crown for the administration of foreign affairs and defence. Otherwise the Islands are independent jurisdictions and are governed by their own ‘Parliaments’, the States of Jersey and the States of Guernsey.

Both Jersey & Guernsey operate their shipping registry autonomously, with the UK providing control over certain operational areas.

The Jersey register is administered by the States of Jersey Registry of British Ships forming part of the States of Jersey Harbours & Airports Committee.

The principal Port of Registry is Jersey (not St. Helier, which is the Island’s capital and main harbour).

Jersey is a Category 2 British register which means that it is restricted to pleasure yachts and commercial yachts up to 399 GT.

With over 2,000 ships on its register it is the largest Category 2 Register.

The popular A3 Certificate is automatically issued, and the registration period lasts for 10 years with no annual renewal charges.
