After purchase and home taking of the ship from England to Denmark, the ship is actually measured by a ship’s meassurer, who, on the basis of line drawings of the ship and some deck dimensions, determins the gross and net tonnage from a volumetric calculation. The ship is then enrolled in the Danish ship registry by submitting an application for the creation of a part owners shipping company (R2 document) and for registration in the Register of shipping (S1 document). The measuring letter, documents, Bill of Sale, as well as a document for withdrawal from the Brittish ships Registry are forwarded. Upon receipt of these documents the ships registry assigned a call sign, which in our case is “OXHU”. This call sign has to be marked inside the ship and a statement that this has been done is submitted to the Danish Maritime Authority. Hereafter, the ship’s nationality certificate is received, together with all stamped Original documents. Moreover, it is important to have documentation on the CE marking and on the VAT paid on the boat in the EU, so as not to pay EU import tax.
