Welcome to the OGA Boat register

Can you help us to develop the OGA online boat register in future?
Find more about the role of the Boat Register Editor here.

In the early 1970s John Scarlett, the first OGA Secretary, started collecting data on members' boats. The records have grown to include nearly 3,500 craft, forming a unique record. Mainly gaff rigged, old and new, workboats and yachts, the Register also contains classic Bermudan yachts and motorboats. Data have been stored electronically since the 1980s but in 2014 the OGA started to transfer the Register to an online system. In April 2016 a selection of records was made available for public browsing. We hope to develop the Register and publish more records.

Boat register form

If your boat is not in the register, we would love to include it. Please boatregister [at] oga [dot] org [dot] uk (subject: Adding%20my%20boat%20to%20the%20OGA%20Boat%20Register) (contact the Boat Register Editor) with a few details of your boat and once we've confirmed it isn't already on the register we will create an entry. If you are a member you will then be able to fill in the rest of the details and add photographs on-line, or if you prefer you can download a form here and return it to us with pictures and we will enter the details. We are happy to help you fill the form in. Members can list boats they have on the register as 'For Sale' at no additional charge. We are also happy to receive details about interesting boats from non-members. If you have updates or historical data or pictures regarding any boat on the register please get in touch.
