How to register in Part B of the Register

Part B registration is mainly for recreational vessels that need nationality for overseas voyaging. Read about the required form, fee and application process to register your ship under Part B.

To register, you need to do these things:

  1. Complete the Application for Part B Registration (form SR3)
  2. If the ship has been registered in another country, obtain evidence (for example, a deletion certificate) from the foreign registry that the registration has been closed.
  3. Pay the registration fee of NZ$1,005.
  4. Send your completed application form, telling us the option you used to pay the fee and the evidence of closure of any previous registration (if applicable) to Maritime New Zealand by email, courier or post.

When we receive the documents and fee, we will register your ship and send you a certificate of registration by courier.

You can send your application via email, courier or post:
