Certified or uncertified transcripts
The information in an uncertified transcript is for general purposes only.
If you need vessel registration information for legal or official reasons, get a certified transcript. A certified transcript is verified by a Registrar, who confirms the details are true.
The Registry does not assume legal responsibility for uncertified transcripts or for telephone advice.
