Isle of Man Yacht Registration - Transfer of Port from Isle of Man to UK or Jersey - Promotion

18 April 2019

As of April 1st,2019, the Isle of Man Ship Registry have substantially increased their annual registration fees for pleasure vessels and introduced three new fee bands based on vessel length:

Pleasure Vessel Annual Fees
Pleasure Yacht LOAOld FeesNew Fees
12m and over£122£250
Over 12m and under 24m£122£500
24m and over£122£1000

The fee increase effects all pleasure yachts that are on the Isle of Man register on or before April 1st, 2019.

The increase in fees appear to signal a move by the Isle of Man registry to move away from the registration of smaller yachts to concentrate on superyachts and commercial tonnage.

We have been contacted by a number of yacht owners seeking to change their port of registry in view of the fee increases.

We are recommending that owners consider the transfer of their vessels to either the UK or Jersey registries.

Both the UK and Jersey registries provided an equivalent British flag 'red ensign' title registry but on a far more cost effective basis with competitive 'one off' rather than annual fees providing a registration valid for five years for the UK and ten years for Jersey.

Oceanskies are pleased to offer an alternative cost-effective registration transfer of port package to owners of Isle of Man registered pleasure vessels wishing to transfer their port of registry either to the UK or Jersey as follows at a discounted price of £1,500.00.

The UK package is offered to private yachts of any size and provides a fast interim provisional registration valid for three months, the provision of a permanent Certificate of British Registry valid for five years and a lifetime radio licence allocating vessel call sign and MMSI number.

The Jersey package is offered to private yachts up to the maximum Jersey tonnage limit of 399 GT and provides a fast interim provisional registration valid for three months, the provision of a permanent Certificate of British Registry valid for ten years and a lifetime radio licence allocating vessel call sign and MMSI number.

The savings over a ten year period are considerable and demonstrated below:
