new boat registration

Hi
It seems I can register my new boat boat under SSR (small ships register) or under UK ship registration part 1 .
There is a diffrence in cost. 24 as opposed to 125
What additional benefits are there for the full part 1 registration?
Are there any potential disadvantages with full registration?
Thanks
Paul

Hi Paul, how's the new toy?

As far as I can make out, for a private/pleasure vessel, part 1 registration involves a lot of forms and money and allows you fly the Red Ensign.

The SSR involves one form*, less than thirty quid and allows you to fly the Red Ensign...

You pays your money and makes your choice

(Unless you've got a marine mortgage the size of Brazil's national debt, in which case the financiers may help you in your decision making )

IMO = International Maritime Organisation. You can have a bigger registration number. Just like a real ferry...

*2 forms if you include your CG66, which you've done already. Haven't you?

Now favouring SSR

Hello Russel - thanks for adding some extra info.
Boat now 4 weeks away - but working on all the detail.
I was speaking to someone else yesterday and he too, like you, thought part 1 registration was only actually needed for marine mortgage.

He also said much paperwork and need for full architects certificate, which obviously meens more professional fees...

I am favouring SSR.

CG66 I will register, once SSR number gained.

We (bryn and me) are planning to be in Clyde/west coast over the fri/sat/sun April 4th 5th 6th. see seperate post in 'cruises'. We will hope to meet-up and will liaise nearer the time.
cheers Paul

You would need Part 1 on a boat if it has a marine mortgage as it confirms who owns it if you come to sell, otherwise its expensive and needs to be renewed every 5 years or so. Some other rules are the yachts number carved into the main beam which might be a tad difficult on a rib.

The SSR is to keep the French happy if you go ver the channel, since there are no checks when you apply it doesn't prove ownership.

Pete, does it serve any other purpose?
