TOPIC: U.K. Part 1 registration

U.K. Part 1 registration 12 Feb 2019 13:59 #103874

Part 1 requires a ships name that is unique to the registry, the nice lady at Cardiff may very well tell you that your chosen name is already registered. She is unable to tell you what is available but will let you have lots of attempts until you choose a name (or a variation of) that is not in use.

Presuming that your barge is under 24 metres then any accredited YDSA surveyor can handle the Tonnage Measurement survey. This is not a survey in the normal sense, and nothing to do with condition, RCD or anything like that. Just three simple measurements, a few details confirmed such as engine number,and a bit of bureaucracy. Cost is reasonable subject to travelling time. You can then register yourself very easily through the registry at Cardiff.

Google Yacht Designers & Surveyors Association for a list of surveyors.

David

We did it just before Christmas.

The RYA will handle the appointment of the surveyor. Just phone the technical dept on the Central number to set it up. We used a local surveyor in the Netherlands.

Like you we have the builder's diemensions though it was not enough. The measurement survey takes place in the water.

The proces is quite straightforward.

Regards

Tony

Firstly thanks to everyone who has addressed my previous question re: overland transport of a barge. A new question please:
Has anyone put a barge on Part 1 of the UK register of shipping and can anyone advise how that went? Any suggestions or tips?
I'm particularly interested in the "certificate of survey for tonnage and measurement" requirement. As a U.K. built barge she has the builder's certificates, but would that suffice, or do the authorities want an independent survey? All comments and advice greatly appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation.
