of course its cheaper, but you cannot fish in Malta with that boat if it licensed SSR. Unless you are willing to take the risk and breaking the law... although i doubt you would be fined if caught fishing - i would imagine a stern warning

Hello

I used to own an SSR registered boat when I first came down from the UK. BUT as Granitu has confirmed, you are not allowed to fish in Maltese waters with that boat, AND if stopped by Transport Malta vessels they have a right to ask you to prove you are a UK resident spending more than 190 days in the UK.

Yes SSR is cheaper, 25 for 5 years BUT......

With all the upcoming changes being proposed locally, I would not risk keeping an SSR boat, indeed I had switched that boat to S. Even if you buy an SSR boat the process is quite simple - Send the SSR doc to the UK MCA and ask for boat to deleted from their register. They will send you a deletion document which you can take to Transport Malta and then register your vessel.

There have been various discussions on registration, but at this stage go with MFC as your boat will be new to the Malta Registries.

In order to own and keep a UK SSR registered boat, you are obliged as per the UK MCA registration regulations to spend MORE than 185 days in the UK. Presently it seems there is no enforcement of this.....!"

One of the conditions to be eligible to register a boat under the UK Register Part III (SSR) the person under whose name the boat is registered has to be "an ordinarily resident in the UK".   

All the information can be obtained from the UK MCA website.

Those are the rules, it's up to each person to decide if he chooses to apply them.
