mmsi is issued to the boat, not the radio or operator so couldnt be transferred anyway. radios must be returned to manufacturer or certain dealers for a reset.

The problem is that it seems that the manufacturer does not exist any more. And also this kind of radio is very uncommon in Germany, so there ain't no dealers.
But obviously there is a method to reset it by pressing certain keys in a special order.
At least Channel Ribs said to know a solution. But Channel Ribs' Mailbox is full so I can not send him a PM. But may be someone else knows?

I believe the XM is a rebadged Huricane A2E/ RadioOcean 4500

in which case the procedure is:
Turn radio off.
Hold down [16] and [watch] while turning radio on.
Enter 4500 as a pin (think thats done by rotating the channel selector and pressing it in to accept)
You should then get an option to reset MMSI. Push channel button to accept then confirm...

Switch radio back off and on.

If you need a german dealer: Busse Yachtshop: VHF DSC Radio Ocean 4500 (English manual on there tells you how to enter a new MMSI.).

But when I understood it right, it's just what dubrus did:

Or did he buy the whole boat, not only the VHF-radio?

The easiest way is to contact ofcom ( assuming you're in the uk) & have the mmsi transferred to you.
