HOW TO REGISTER A VESSEL
Over the past years at BrightPath, our core service and what we are most known for is immigration and relocation to the Caribbean. Additionally, if you wish to invest or start a business in one of the Eastern Caribbean islands, we can assist with the incorporation and licensing process.
However, did you know that if you are you a vessel owner, have some ties to Sint Maarten and wish to register your vessel for private use in Sint Maarten, BrightPath can best assist you too!
To register a foreign vessel in St. Maarten, you’ll need to pay a visit to the Department of Civil Aviation, Shipping and Maritime Affairs. There, you will submit the required documents and pay any associated fees.
What documents are required to register a foreign vessel in Sint Maarten?
- Ownership established – Bill of Sale (to be Notarized if above $10,000)
- De-registration from previous registry
- Link of ownership with St. Maarten/St. Martin to be established
- Liability insurance
- Picture of vessel
- Inspection – from a national inspector (to be coordinated by BrightPath)
Also, if you’re visiting Sint Maarten with your boating crew and wish to obtain entry visas while here, the Team at BrightPath can assist you with this too.
