It is normal practice for operators to arrange the transfer of vessels themselves. In the first instance, you will need to contact the previous operator and request that they remove the vessel from their fleet. Once they confirm that they have completed this, you will then be able to add the vessel record to your account.
To add a vessel, login to SIRE and click on Vessels from the homepage:
Next click on the green add vessel button:
At the add vessel screen enter the vessel name, Flag and DWT, then select the vessel type.
You are then prompted to enter an identifier, this will vary depending on the vessel type. In some cases you are asked for more than one vessel identifier. Please enter as many as possible that are applicable(such as IMO VIN or REG numbers), then click on the “create” button:
Finally, a prompt will appear on screen advising you that a vessel already exists with these details and gives you the opportunity to accept this vessel and add it to your vessel list. Click on the blue button to the right of the vessel listing on screen to add the vessel to your account:
Once completed you are then taken to the vessel record you have just added. You can then check the vessel record contents and begin updating any details as required.
