Provisional Registration is possible in 48 hours. A very personal and friendly service. Commercial & Private classification, options with or without an owning company structure. New vessels can be registered at start of construction. Mortgages can be registered or transferred. The ensign is an attractive blue ensign flag without the usual need of a warrant or licence. Automatic membership of the Cook Islands Yacht Squadron is available for well run, quality yachts, with CIYS as port of registry. LY2 standards for commercial / charter vessels are fully adopted, but with no compulsory MCA compliance or class society requirements, which is often a cause of difficulties with a yacht not built to class, or the class has been allowed to lapse.
