Ports of Registry
Under the RMI Flag, there are three available Ports of Registry:
- Majuro: For commercial vessels;
- Bikini: For all yachts; and
- Jaluit: For all yachts, and fishing vessels.
Vessel Name and Name Reservation
At any one time in each of the three Ports of Registry, only one active vessel name can be used. For example, the same name can be used for one deep sea vessel in Majuro, one yacht in the Bikini, and one fishing vessel in Jaluit.
If the name is available in the appropriate Port of Registry for the vessel type or in one or either of the Yacht Ports of Registry, it may be reserved.
Before beginning the vessel registration application process, an applicant can check the availability of a name and reserve it via any Regional Office for up to six months for an existing vessel, and up to two years for a newbuilding. There is no charge for this name reservation service.

- Official Numbers for yachts start with “7” or “8” and contain five digits.
- Official Numbers for bareboat-registered vessels start with “9” and contain five digits.
- Official Numbers for all other vessels and registration types contain four digits.
