Tonnage Measurement Survey


As members of the International Institute of Marine Surveying Certifying Authority and approved by the Yacht Designers and Surveyors Association, we offer a tonnage measurement service in accordance with the Merchant Shipping (Tonnage) Regulations 1997. We employ a recognised measurement system and submit our recorded particulars to the Certifying Authority who produce the vessel's tonnage certificate for registration purposes.

We are authorised to undertake tonnage measurement surveys in accordance with all territories of the Red Ensign Group, including the United Kingdom, Cayman Islands, Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey, British Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands.

Should you require, we can produce and fit a tonnage plate to your vessel; this will display the Official Number and Registered Tonnage and is required to be permanently fixed to a permanent part of the vessel`s structure. We can also source boat signage or lettering if required.

Once the vessel has been marked, we can attend briefly to witness completion and sign and return the Carving & Marking Note as required by some registries.

We would be delighted to talk you through the process, please do not hesitate to contact our office on +44 (0) 2380 207938 or info@marine-surveying.co.uk to discuss your specific requirements. Alternatively, please click here to submit an enquiry online.
