You Can No Longer Use the Vessel

You might want to delete a vessel from the Canadian boat registry because it’s busted, no longer working, or unsalvageable. If you can no longer use the vessel, after all, you no longer need to maintain the registration, right? Some people think that they can take care of this by simply not minding their vessel registration anymore. While this technically works, it’s better to make it official by just filing for a certificate of deletion of the vessel to make sure that it is no longer a part of the registry. This way, you will have evidence of your discontinued use and registration of the vessel in question. 

The Vessel will Now Be for Foreign Use

If you are selling or transferring your vessel to someone else within the United States, then there is a specific process that lets you do that. The transfer of ownership form on our homepage can help you officially change the vessel’s owner. This way, they can keep the registration going with the Canadian Register. However, if you are selling your vessel or transferring to someone who will not be registering it in Canada, then you can delete it from the Canada boat registration. This way, you can officially separate yourself from the vessel and avoiding any issues that may arise in the future with it.
