National Historic Ships UK Vessel Owners' Survey 2020

Attention, historic vessel owners!  Please help us by taking our Vessel Owners' Survey, which applies to all craft listed on the Registers. 

To encourage you to take part, all surveys will be entered into a draw to win the fantastic prize* of a 2-5 day short course, donated by our sponsor the Boat Building Academy in Lyme Regis, and worth up to £750!

This survey is being undertaken by NHS-UK as part of its regular update procedure, but also to gather additional information ahead of a full review of the Historic Ship Registers.  We encourage all owners to participate in the survey, which should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 

The Registers are a vital tool for historical research purposes, funding and conservation priorities, as well as policy work, and we need your help to make sure the information they hold is as up to date and accurate as possible!  Thank you for your help in completing this survey.

Please note, if you own more than one vessel on the Registers, you can only complete the online survey once. If you need extra copies, please download a Word version of the form below, then return your completed form(s) to info@nationalhistoricships.org.uk


The Vessel Owners' Survey closes at 5pm on 28th February 2020.

* Prize is for a 2 or 5 day short course at the Boat Building Academy in Lyme Regis.  Any short course can be chosen up to the value of £750, subject to availability.  The BBA's 2020 Short Course programme can be viewed here.  The course must be taken by the end of 2021, and no alternative cash prize can be offered.
