Check that you have a valid e-certificate or that the seller has drawn up a deed of transfer for you.
Watercraft's change of ownership through e-services
The duties of a new owner include registering the watercraft under their name. The change of ownership must be completed within 30 days of concluding the deal.
Do the following:
Identification is required to use the service. You must be aged 15 or over.
If you have a e-certificate, select the Complete change of ownership using a e-certificate service. Enter the e-certificate and the registration number.
If a notification of transfer of the watercraft to you has been made, you can select the craft directly on the list and go to the Notify a change of ownership service.
Complete the information of the owners/holders of the craft. As an identified user you are automatically the owner of the watercraft, and this information cannot be changed. Also fill in any other mandatory data on the watercraft that may be missing.
Make the payment for the change of ownership and remember to click on the Return to the seller's service button to receive a confirmation and print your receipt.
The registration number of the watercraft will not change as ownership is transferred. The registration certificate will be mailed to you in about two weeks.
You may, however, use your watercraft already before the registration certificate reaches you. If necessary, the authorities can check the system to see that the watercraft has been registered and that the certificate is being issued. It is, however, a good idea to always keep the bill of sale in the watercraft when using it.
The estate of a deceased person can do the registration in the registration service points or sending the notification by post to Traficom.
