A ship must always be free and clear of all mortgages if requested to be deleted from a Danish ship register.
Alternatively, the mortgagees must consent in writing to the deletion of the ship including mortgages, or it must be proved that the mortgage interest has been discharged.
If the ship is not free and clear of all mortgages, you will be asked to dispose of the mortgages.
In case of registration of the levy of execution against or other interests in the ship, the Register of Shipping will contact the interest holders. They will then have 30 days within which to consent to the deletion of the ship, or to object to such deletion on the grounds of having taken legal steps.
The ship may not be deleted until after the 30-day period or after receipt of consent to deletion from all interest holders.
If an interest holder states that legal steps have been taken for enforcing their rights, deletion cannot usually be effected until the enforcement proceedings have been concluded.
Please note that no mortgages or other interests may be registered against ships in the Boat Register. Deletion from this register is therefore simpler.
You can see any mortgages or interests currently registered against your ship under ‘Search the ship registers’
