Change of Fishing Vessel Dimension or your Contact Details (Part 2)

For any changes to your contact details or dimensions of the fishing vessel

Contact details

If your contact details have changed and you have previously completed your vessel registration using the online service, or you have created an online account and claimed your vessel, you can log in to update your details using the UK Ship Register online service.

Find out more on claiming your vessel on our managing your registration online guidance page.

Alternatively, you can provide a signed letter confirming the change of your details that includes the vessel name and Official Number.

Vessel dimensions

If there have been any changes to your vessel’s dimensions, you will need to provide an updated Measurement Certificate or Class Certificate. Please contact your local MCA Marine Office to arrange this.

To update your registration and issue a Certificate of Registry to show the change of vessel dimensions, please contact us to advise of the changes and make a payment of Registration fees. The fee to change your vessel’s dimensions is £53 for the standard service or £153 for the premium service.
