Boat Transfer Process

HMYA provides assistance to members in processing boat ownership transfers by working with a qualified broker. Note: You may choose to transfer the boat ownership yourself by working directly with the  Transport General Authority (TGA) and Coast Guard (CG) which may require you to take your boat to the CG office for inspection.

Boat Transfer Process:    

Have the boat inspected by the fleet captain and get a signed Q Form to insure it is seaworthy before selling / buying the boat. No transfer can be processed until the inspection is passed by the fleet captain.

The boat registration must be valid for more than five months to transfer the boat, otherwise registration renewal must take place before the transfer (sale). Transfers of boats that still have old boat documents (Booklets or cards) require th
e boats to be registered in the new automated system (see Boat Registration Services and Boat Renewal Process sections), in addition to the requirements below.

  • Bill of Sale: A TGA official form in Arabic used for boat ownership transfer (selling / buying a boat).  Seller/s and Buyer/s as well as remaining owners of a multi owner boats (classified as buyers) must sign the Bill of Sale. The Broker and/or the Registrar will assist in completing the Arabic form for Non-Arabic speaking members.
