IOM Registration and Certification
If you are registering a new boat supply the Registrar with the design name and designer as well as your full contact information. To receive your Certificate the boat must be measured and that paper work must sent (a scan is fine) to the Registrar and a USA Certificate will be sent to you.
The proper forms are available here:

If a transfer of a boat with a Certificate fill out the bottom of the Certificate in the Transfer Section and send to the Registrar (again a scan is fine) along with your contact information, a new Certificate will be sent to you in your name.

If a Transfer of a boat without a Certificate simply let the Registrar know you are the new owner. Hopefully you will get the boat measured and a Certificate will be issued.

There is a $7.00 fee for Registration or a Transfer.


We do not allow pseudonyms or fake registration names in an attempt to foil bots & trolls.

When registering you must use your real name, country and boat number (if you have one) – for example:

First name initial & full last name eg. J Smith USA 16

Full first name & last name initial eg. John S USA 16
