Tonnage Measurement & Certification
Cetec Marine Ltd can help you with all of your surveying and inspection needs. We are here from the moment you first see your perfect boat and then for the life time of your relationship with that vessel.
We offer detailed reports and surveys to you and your insurance company. We can also begin the registration process of when you get a new vessel by supplying a tonnage measurement and certification.
Broadly speaking, tonnage is a measure of a ship's size which can be determined either by volume or weight. When you buy a boat you will need to register it with the British Registry for use on UK waters.
You will need to fill out a Part 1 registration which indicates the changing of hands and also a Declaration of Eligibility. You will also require a Bill of Sale showing at the least the last 5 years of your boat's ownership.
You may know of part 3 as well. This simple registration does not provide any of the information mentioned above. However, it is useful if you want to take your boat to another country. It acts a little like a boat passport and proves your boat's nationality when you are in foreign or international waters. No measurement is required for part 3.
