Blue Ensign Ltd are one of the four founder Cook Islands Ship Registry Deputy Registrars and Surveyors from 2005. Since then, the registry has achieved full membership of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). The wholly owned subsidiary yacht club (Cook Islands Yacht Squadron) has been working well, offering a simplified registration process for both Private and Commercial Yachts and other craft. Yachts can be of any size or age and do not need to be in class with a Classification Society if under 500 registered tons, providing they are well managed and in good condition.”
The application process is designed to be very simple and fast. Statutory Certificates are issued directly from our U.K. office by e mail and optional courier service. There is no need to send documents to the Cook Islands, or to have a Cook Islands Captain or crew.
We are able to conduct all the surveys and to issue all of the documentation, including Radio Licences, International Call Signs, MMSI numbers, IMO numbers, Safety Certificates, MARPOL Certificates, ISM, ISPS, and MLC compliance audits etc. meaning minimum downtime and inconvenience.
