COVID-19: Jersey Ship & Yacht Registrations during the Lockdown

Jersey officially went into ‘lockdown’ with effect from 8 am Monday 30th March 2020 and shortly after Fiduchi received communication from the Jersey Ships’ Registry advising that their office would be temporarily closed until further notice. Whilst the Jersey Ships’ Registry are contactable through email; they will not be able to process any paperwork until the current COVID 19 situation allows the Island to return to normal.

We want to assure our existing clients that the temporary closure of the Jersey Ships’ Registry will not have any effect on the current yacht registrations in the Island. We have been informed that any certificates of registration due for renewal during the lockdown period will remain valid until the Jersey Ships’ Registry can return to work as usual.  

Should the expired yacht registration cause any issues, we will work with the Jersey Ships’ Registry to ensure that we can issue a letter of comfort confirming the validation of the certificate of registration during this time.

We would also like to assure any new clients that the temporary closure of the Jersey Ships’ Registry does not affect you during this time, we are happy to receive new enquiries, and we will do our utmost to assist with your requirements. Whilst the Jersey Ships’ Registry may not be able to process your applications in the first instance; we can certainly prepare the necessary forms for you and ensure they are processed as soon as practicable.

Should you require any further information or have any queries, please do not hesitate to telephone the Fiduchi Yachts team on +44 1534 755155 or email yachts@fiduchi.com.

Should you wish to contact a member of team directly, their contact details are available here.
