Ship Registration USA

YACHT REGISTRATION DELAWARE (USA) is a nautical service which registers new, second hand, home build boats, jet skis and other vessels under the Delaware (USA) Flag registry. Delaware (USA) is one of the most widely chosen jurisdictions for ship registration and is valid around the world. The Delaware (USA) flag registration is accessible to boat owners from any country, as there is no obligation of residence in Delaware (USA).

The Delaware vessel registration is also perfect for European Union citizens that use their vessel within EU waters. If you have paid VAT on your boat you can use the Delaware registration within European waters and do not have to leave every 6 months!

We can register you as a private owner and you do not need a USA residency or citizenship to register in Delaware or we can setup an LLC. in Delaware, to hold the ownership of your yacht.

IF YOU SETUP AS PRIVATE OWNER

STEP 1 – YOU PROVIDE US WITH MIN. DOCUMENTS
You provide us with the simple paperwork required (see below page) by email. We check the papers and if all correct send you a payment link.

STEP 2 - WE REGISTER YOUR VESSEL UNDER DELAWARE FLAG
We will apply for your Delaware yacht registration. This will take max 3 weeks if you choose our regular service or max 3 days if we go by in person for our express service. Once you received your registration your vessel can fly the US flag in any international waters around the world.

IF YOU SETUP WITH AN LLC

STEP 1 – WE SET-UP A DELAWARE LLC (LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY) FOR YOU
A non-US citizen may own a Delaware LLC which in turn can own a vessel registered in Delaware. We setup this LLC for you but it is 100% owned by you. You then make a bill of sale selling your boat to your own new Delaware LLC. The Bill of sale has to be notarized which is easy since you are both the seller (person) as well as the buyer (your company) This LLC is used solely for the ownership of your boat and will therefor not need to pay any taxes. The setup of the LLC will only take about 3 days. You can use our sample Bill of Sale or use your own.

STEP 2 - WE REGISTER YOUR VESSEL UNDER DELAWARE FLAG
Once your LLC is formed and you have notarized the Bill of Sale we will apply for your Delaware yacht registration. This will take max 3 weeks if you choose our regular service or max 3 days if we go by in person for our express service. Once you received your registration your vessel can fly the US flag in any international waters around the world.
