The Small Ships Register (SSR) provides a simple form of non-title registration for eligible UK residents who own pleasure vessels that are less than 24 metres in overall length.
Our online service enables owners to register small vessels that have not previously been registered with the SSR or make alterations to existing registrations, such as changes of ownership, changes of vessel details (including vessel names) and changes of address.
Owners can also use this service to close registrations.
Guidance notes which provide important information about the SSR eligibility criteria can be found on the following registration pages.
Please note that only individuals (not companies) can register with the SSR. If you are ordinarily resident
in the UK, your vessel is less than 24 metres in length and it is not currently registered elsewhere
(eg: with a foreign register or Part 1 of the UK Register), please press PROCEED to continue.
