By law, any vessel must be registered, including small boats. Registration must be completed within a month after the purchase of the vessel. If you become the proud owner of a yacht or kayak, then you need to register your purchase with the State Inspectorate for Small Vessels.
- - statement;
- - the passport;
- - documents on the acquisition of the vessel (sale and purchase agreement, sales receipt, certificate of inheritance, etc.);
- - copy of the technical passport of the vessel;
- - a receipt for payment of the state duty.
Small boats are self-propelled vessels for inland navigation and other floating objects with a capacity of less than 80 tons, main engines with a capacity of less than 55 kilowatts, or with outboard motors (regardless of power). As a rule, most often citizens buy just such ships and, accordingly, many are faced with the problem of their registration.
If the ship belongs to one citizen, then it must be registered at the place of permanent residence of the owner. Two people who buy one boat for two will have to register the boat as shared ownership. It is worth remembering that if the vessel was previously registered in the territory of a foreign state, then it will be necessary to first remove it from registration in a foreign state.
After state registration, the owner or owners are issued a ship ticket, and the ship is also assigned a registration number. At the request of the shipowners, the ship can be given a name, which will be included in the documents. The registration number and name are applied with indelible paint on the sides of the vessel.
It is worth remembering that in addition to the ownership of the ship, the pledge, mortgage and other encumbrances of the ship are also registered. But such registration is possible only after registration of the previously arisen rights to the ship (property, the right of economic management or operational management). Upon termination of encumbrances, it is required to provide documents on their termination to the registering authority.
