Change of ship, including change of ownership


This guide will explain how you can report changes to an already registered ship via the Digital Ship Register's Self-Service. The guide does not cover bareboat-in registrations, as these are described in a separate guide for bareboat-in, including how to extend the bareboat-in period. This guide will describe how all possible changes to a ship can be made via the Digital Ship Register, including sales and conditional sales. The flow of the notification in the Self-Service is divided into steps, which naturally lead the user through until the report is to be sent for manual case processing by the Ship Register in the Danish Maritime Authority.
