Vessel Mortgage Department

The Liberian Registry allows for mortgage recording against actively registered vessels as well as vessels under construction, so long as the mortgage meets the Registry standards. The pre-clearance formalities are user-friendly and help our clients ensure compliance with the Liberian law. Our recording procedures are simple and protect the interest of ship owners and mortgagees.

In order to record a Preferred Liberian Mortgage with the Liberian Registry, we require 3 original duly executed Mortgage Instruments, an original or copy of a Memorandum of Particulars and one original or copy of Evidence of Authority from the vessel owner.

Liberia permits recording of the following instruments:

  • Preferred Mortgage;
  • Continuation Mortgage;
  • Mortgage recorded against a vessel that is laid-up or under construction;
  • Amendment of Mortgage;
  • Discharge of Mortgage;
  • Assignment of Mortgage;
  • Assumption of Mortgage;
  • Coordination & Subordination Agreements;
  • Fleet Mortgages
  • Financing Charter
  • Builder’s Certificates
  • Bills of Sale
