TonnageSurvey.com is a unique online portal created by Oceanskies who are one of the largest European yacht registration and documentation agencies.
Oceanskies specialises in the registration and documentation of yachts of all sizes under Part I of the British Register of Ships at the various red ensign registries including the United Kingdom, (i.e. London, Southampton, Poole etc.), Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands.
Part I of the British Register of Ships is the most popular international register for yachts in the world. Its popularity owes a lot to its integrity and its reputation as a credible register of title.
One of the key elements of the registration process is the need for every yacht registered under Part I of the British Register of Ships to undergo a tonnage survey by a suitably authorised surveyor working under the auspices of a survey or classification society approved by the flag state.
As part of its range of services Oceanskies has created the TonnageSurvey.com portal to address a gap in the market for the performance of tonnage surveys for yachts being registered under Part I of the British Register of Ships.
TonnageSurvey.com opens up to all yacht owners the tonnage survey service that has previously only been available to clients of Oceanskies.
It is the purpose of the portal to provide all owners a cost effective, quick and efficient tonnage survey service.
Whenever possible the tonnage surveys are carried out ‘in house’ by TonnageSurvey.com using either Yacht Brokers, Designers & Surveyors Association (YBDSA) or Royal Yachting Association (RYA) approved tonnage measurers or in certain cases surveys are subcontracted to local partner surveyors or classification societies.
Following the completion of the tonnage survey the survey report is sent to the respective survey authority who in turn issue the ‘Certificate of Tonnage and Measurement’ or ‘Tonnage Measurement Certificate’ to the owner’s registry of choice.
By virtue of the number of surveys that we are organising and arranging it is often possible for us to combine surveyor visits and reduce costs to our clients.
Tonnage surveys can be arranged on yachts lying world-wide. We have particularly good surveyor coverage for tonnage surveys in the popular Mediterranean yachting locations such as Mallorca, Spain, the South of France, Monaco, Italy, Malta and Greece.
We can also arrange tonnage surveys for yachts being registered in other credible yacht registration jurisdictions including Malta and the Marshall Islands.
TonnageSurvey.com can also manufacture and despatch cost effective tonnage plates so that yacht owners can quickly complete the Carving & Marking stages of the yacht registration process.
