Please note

  • The primary purpose of the service is to allow consumers who are in the process of purchasing a watercraft to verify the reliability of the watercraft and owner data provided by the seller, such as whether the seller is the registered owner of the watercraft. Any information retrieved using the service must not be used for illegal purposes or for purposes that could compromise the privacy of individuals.
  • The service is only available for authenticated private customers.
  • The number of queries is limited.
  • The watercraft owner history in the service goes back to 1 August 2014.
  • The ownership history contains information on one natural person as a previous owner. For others, and if the ownership has ceased more than five years ago, the history data only shows the type and period of ownership. Information on organisations as owners is always provided.
  • For owners, holders and those subject to notification of transfer, the only available information is their name.
  • A notification of transfer means that the registered owner of a watercraft has notified Traficom that they have sold the watercraft to someone else.
  • Data will not be available for deregistered watercraft. A watercraft can be permanently deregistered for example if it has been destroyed or scrapped.
