Requirements:

Documents:

(this is the form used to request a certificate)

For new (from the manufacturer) hulls:
  1.  Following order confirmation, if desired, hull number assignment can be requested to be reserved, so that you may send the manufacturer what the eventual hull number will be. If this is desired, contact the Registrar via the email listed above and a hull number will be set aside for you at no cost. If this option is taken, continue to step 1. (a)., otherwise, continue to step 2.

    1. (a). If this option was taken, once delivery of your boat is completed, reach out to your local measurer, complete the measurement process, and have the measurer sign along the appropriate line on the Certification Control Form​​. Once the Form is complete, email the Registrar, and send the registration fee to the Treasurer. Certificate will be issued by the Registrar.

  2. Once hull arrives, email the registrar to request hull number assignment. Once the Registrar assigns a hull number,  contact your local measurer, complete the measurement process, and have the measurer sign along the appropriate line on the Certification Control Form​​. Once the Form is complete, email the Registrar, and send the registration fee to the Treasurer. Certificate will be issued by the Registrar.

Note: If you are constructing your own Hull, the above process still applies. You are considered the manufacturer.

For prior-owned hulls:

If the hull has a valid certificate within the USA IOM NCA: 

  1. On the bottom of the certificate, as the new owner, fill out the transfer hull portion.

  2. Email the registrar this form, and send the transfer fee to the Treasurer. Certificate will be issued by the Registrar.

 

If the hull has a valid certificate from an NCA other than USA:

  1. Contact USA Registrar to receive hull number assignment. Include a copy of the current hull certificate in the email.

  2. Following hull number assignment, complete the transfer portion on the bottom of the certificate.

  3. Email the USA Registrar the form with the transfer portion completed, and send the transfer fee to the Treasurer. Certificate will be issued by the Registrar.

 

If the status of certification is unknown:

  1. Contact the Registrar. Include as much information as you can in the email. Include hull design, any hull number markings, manufacturer details, or any other pertinent information that could help with identification of certificate status.

  2. Once status is determined by the Registrar, instructions will be provided to assist you in obtaining a valid certificate.
