Formalities of Yacht Registration

The registry has a Technical Committee which is responsible for the registration process and the composition of crews, as well as ensuring full compliance by registered entities with the standards established in the international conventions ratified by Portugal with respect to on-board safety.

The MAR accepts registration of recreational craft with a minimum length of 7 meters and commercial yachts with a maximum capacity of 12 passengers and a length between 7 and 50 meters.

A set of various documents and information about the yacht should be sent to the MAR Technical Committee for consideration and initiation of the registration process. The number and nature of the elements to be supplied will depend on the purposes for which the yacht is intended, ie for recreational or commercial activities.

The registration process is free of any fee. The Commercial Registry Office of the International Business Center of Madeira shall be used for this purpose.

Yachts may only be definitively registered in MAR. The initial request for registration must be obtained from the Technical Commission and, in the case of commercial yachts, must be accompanied by all technical elements relating to yacht safety, in accordance with Portuguese legislation and applicable international standards.

The International society MAR may delegate to the classification societies or other entities recognized by it, the exercise of certain functions, which include inspections, recognizing the certificates issued by these entities. There are currently eight classification societies accredited in Portugal to perform their duties under the MAR:

  • Lloyd’s Register of Shipping (LRS);
  • Det Norske Veritas (DNV);
  • American Bureau of Shipping (ABS);
  • Portuguese Rinave (RINAVE);
  • Bureau Veritas (BV);
  • Italian Navale Registry (RINA); Germanischer Lloyd (GL);
  • ClassNKK.

Other classification societies may be recognized by Portugal in the future.

Other delegated powers include the definition of stability standards, bulk cargoes, on-board safety plans and other documents, such as the issuance of international certificates relating to conventions IMO and OIT.

Finance a Yacht or a Boat?

Interested in buying a Yacht or a Boat but unsure whether you can afford it?

Visit for helpful information about boat financing and much more.

We offer financing options for Standard and Custom Power Yachts or Sail Boats, Multi-Hulls, Ribs and Tenders.

All used boats will require a survey conducted by an Oseanus-Finance approved surveyor.

Our Finance partners are trusted names as Barclays Bank PLC and the Royal Bank of Scotland so you can be confident with the finance products we offer.

Boat financing can be a confusing topic, especially for first-time buyers. The options are much like those offered for a car or RV, but still can be very confusing; what’s good for one person might not work for a different financial situation. No matter what your bank account holds, understanding basic financing options will help you make the right choice.


Most dealers are thoroughly experienced at setting up financing, and as long as your credit is good, can often line up a competitive rate. Dealers are happy to assist in this regard because they don’t want to lose the sale, and on top of that, many depend on financing as a profit center. (Yes, they do usually get a cut). A key benefit of dealer financing is it’s a simple and quick process for you, the buyer; essentially, the dealer does all the work. In some cases the deal may also come with financing incentives such as no down payment or a low introductory interest rate.

There are disadvantages, though. Key among them is often a higher rate. Note, however, that buyers can sometimes reduce the impact of that interest rate by paying off the loan quickly—provided there’s no prepayment penalty.

We can help you with finance , we offer a number of finance packages to suit individual or business preferences.

We will find the right arrangement for you, whatever your budget, our rates are competitive, making your New Yacht or Boat affordable.
