Welcome to MarItIme cook Islands
Open Register for YACHTS

Cook Islands operates an open register for  yachts via a network of Deputy Registrars around the world.

Maritime Cook Islands performs all Flag State duties for the Cook Islands government through an agreement with the Ministry of Transport.

As a  yacht owner, you can easily qualify to register yachts through membership of Cook Islands Yacht Squadron (CIYS) or by establishing a Cook Islands International Company or by registering an existing Foreign Company on the Cook Islands International Companies Register.

Cook Islands requires that all ships that fly our flag comply with all of the relevant international maritime conventions but we do not impose any additional requirements beyond IMO Conventions and IACS Unified Interpretations.

Our yacht registration process is simple and efficient and can be completed with assistance of your nearest Deputy Registrar.

We issue Nairobi Wreck Removal Convention Certificates and Bunkers Convention Certificates to yachts registered in non-State parties with valid Blue Cards from an approved P&I Insurer. Our online application process is simple and efficient and is accessible from anywhere in the world, 24/7 over 365 days a year.

DR Focus - Hilda Loe from Singapore

Hilda’s relationship with MCI started way back in 2006 – when she first helped a client register his yacht with the Cook Islands.

As time went on and as Hilda signed on more yachts – she was approached by MCI to be its Deputy Registrar.

We are at the Thailand Boat Show from 15-18th December 2016. Book an appointment with Hilda Loe to find out more about our yacht services.

NWRC Certificates

The Cook Islands has acceded to the Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks, 2007 which entered into force on the 14th April 2015.

Registered owners of ships above 300GT will need insurance cover arrangements, which meet the requirements of the Convention.  The Convention provides a strict liability, compensation and compulsory insurance regime for States affected by a maritime casualty. It makes the registered owner of a ship liable for locating, marking and removing a wreck deemed to be a hazard in a State’s Convention area.
