Have Your Boat Measured by Maple Marine Ltd

If you are taking out marine finance you are likely to be asked to register your boat under Part 1 of the Registry of Shipping and Seamen operated by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) at Cardiff, so the finance can be noted against it. This is also proof of nationality of your yacht which is useful if you take your vessel overseas.

It is not a complicated process but it does need to be carried out by someone authorised and trusted to confirm the existence of the boat and to confirm a number of technical details of the boat.

We can do the tonnage measurement for you both in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Worldwide.

Tonnage measurement surveys need to be undertaken by an authorised surveyor. The tonnage report will be sent to the registry by the certifying authority on completion. The registry brings your registration application together with the tonnage report to confirm and issue you with the registration.

We are authorised through the YDSA to undertake simplified Tonnage Measurement Surveys for vessels up to 24m.

As well as for the UK registry we can undertake tonnage surveys for the following registries:

Registration requires a tonnage measurement survey of the boat, and we can undertake these measurements (also known as tonnage measurements).

Application Forms are available from the YDSA. We can email you a copy of the YDSA application form if you would like.
