Change of Ownership (Re-registration of an RMI Vessel)
The procedure for re-registration is almost identical to that of registration. When an RMI-registered ship is transferred to new ownership, a new Certificate of Registry and trading documents will be issued in the name of the new owner upon completion of the re-registration process. The vessel will retain its current Official Number and Radio Call Sign.
