Fast & Easy Yacht Registration Cyprus

Welcome to our website dedicated to all things related to yacht registration in Cyprus. We will make registering your yacht and other pleasure craft a breeze.  When you are ready to register your craft or vessel, as long as you have all the correct documents, it should only take only a few business days to complete.

You will receive a 6-month provisional registration in order to complete the documentation.  This might be a deletion certificate in which the previous owner states that the yacht is no longer registered in Cyprus.  As long as you can provide the proper documentation, the Cyprus Registrar of Ships will issue a permanent registration to the new owner once the 6-month provisional registration has expired.  If you do not have all documentation, you will be given an additional 6-month extension to collect all needed documents.

"Our corporation opened a new branch in Cyprus and I was given the task of having our company yacht registered with a Cyprus flag. Much of our business depends on entertaining foreign dignitaries and CEO's, so being able to have easy access to a yacht is extremely important. Yacht Registration Cyprus was the first firm I reached out to about getting our yacht registered. They impressed me with their level of knowledge and quickly revealed their level of expertise. I look forward to working with them again in the near future."

A yacht-owning company, unlike all other offshore companies, may be owned either entirely by Cypriots, or exclusively by foreigners or jointly by Cypriots & foreigners. Thus, it is necessary for foreigners to set up a Cypriot "yacht owning company" and transfer the yacht to that company.
