Ownership searches

General

Boats can also be registered as property in the same way as real estate. Registration only takes place when legal ownership has been demonstrated and has been granted by the competent court. 

The Tonnage Department (Scheepsmetingsdienst) then applies a permanent 'brand' incorporating or referring to a 'sea letter', the measurement institute (R for Rotterdam, G for Groningen, A for Amsterdam etc.) and the year of registration.

This not only endows the ownership with international recognition, it can also be used to establish a mortgage.

Using our on-line connection with the property register, it is possible to check the ownership and other details of a registered vessel.
