    Default Tracing a boat owner

    How do I go about tracing the owner of a yacht registered under part 1?

    She is just changing hands but I'd like to get in touch with the new owners if possible.

    When a boat motored into my anchor warp then took half and scarpered while I wasn't there, I was luckily told by others of the boat's name & club initials.

    Upon working out what the initials stood for, I had a chat with that clubs' secretary, who quite happily gave me the miscreants' contact details.

    That was a long time ago, don't know if some jobsworth might quote 'data protection act' nowadays...

    Not sure but this may help http://www.itu.int/online/mms/mars/ship_search.sh

    Search using boat name. If it comes up then click on name for info.

    Provided the new owners have re-registered her Part I in their name you can get a transcript of the registry (for a fee) from the Registrar of Shipping in Cardiff - 02920-448800.

    The registry is not a dating agency, nor is the data freely in the public domain.

    Would it not be alarming if you could obtain the owners personal home contact details from the boat name?
