Buying a coded boat

I've searched this forum loads but can't find the answer to this.

I'm looking at buying a coded RIB, and using it for charter. When I buy it will I have to have it re-coded or inspected as the new owner, or can I just carry on based on the original inspection that the previous owner had.

Many thanks

John

Hi John

Depends how long since its last survey, but you can normally do a transfer.

Hi Jono.

What is the timescale with regards to when it last had a survey? How much does a transfer cost and what does it involve?

Thanks, John

The last coded boats, i have sold, it was a matter of transferring the names, then a full survey had to be done by the 'new' owner, so i would base it on that you would have to have a full survey done.. sometimes not a complete one, but they will certainly go over all the safety gear, and check it is all there.
Since the yellow rib down south decided to fall apart with 14 people on board, all has been made even tighter by the authorities, and all seams etc should be checked over out of the water.
I sold a coded 7m and the new owner thought it was simply a matter of paperwork, but turned out to be allot more than that. But also once the ydsa, or whoever, are informed the boat is sold - the boats individual licence is put on 'hold' till it is in the right name, so in reallife the boat will not actually be coded for the new owner.and you would not be able to take out passengers till that time.

Transfer of coding

When a coded boat is sold the coding is suspended until it can be inspected by a nominated surveyor. The inspection is usually fairly basic and is a quick once over of the boat and an inspection of the safety gear. It's amazing how much safety gear can go missing or out of service date when a boat is sold! Typically the inspection is same as the "Mid term" inspection that the boat would have anyway in year 3 of the 5 year cycle.

Obviously if the surveyor notices any indications that the boat might not be in good order the scope of the inspection may increase until he is satisfied that the boat is serviceable.

Dawn Mcnaughton at the YDSA can help with the paperwork.

Coded Atlantic 21

The atlantic 21 in the for sale section at the moment would be a good example. I see problems with this boat it has 3 years left on the coding but if you have to get it recoded then problems ie the free board at the transon/or lack of it. Doesn't it have to be 250mm for cat 4?

Check the paperwork.

Best to check the paperwork and see how the stability and freeboard was assessed - there may have been a dispensation - or it might actually have 250mm freeboard!
Or the freeboard may not have been assessed correctly.
Stability is not normally reassessed unless there has been a change to the boat (such as a new engine), even at the 5 year re-survey.
