Yacht Name Registry - Look-up

Much like airplanes have tail numbers, and a variety of web sites to cross reference a planes tail number to the owner, information, plane, model, etc. is there such a thing for yachts?

Anywhere one can do some research on a yachts name to the MFG, length, etc. ??

I've seen a lot of thread where people ask about a boat, and other come bak with quite a bit of detail. Any links as to where they are gathering this info would be great.

I've searched the forum as didn't find anything so figured a thread would be safe.

Regards-
~Q

Much thanks!

Any for other sites which feature (non USCG registered) yachts? (or is it a hunt and guess game with the different brokerage sites on the net?)

************ has a pretty thorough collection of yachts. You can search by name, and it will give you all the basic details such as length, yard, designer, etc. But it was also tell you where it was last seen.
The only thing the site lacks is the ability to search by shipyard or by location. You can only search by boat name.

Guys,

We use this site to get info on merchant vessels. I ran some known yacht names through it and they showed up. Info given includes the registered company name, classification society, deadweight, link to the vessel's class site for class specific info, and sometimes info on various compliance certs. It is free, but you do need to register to use it.

In addition, here is a US Coast Guard site that gives some info as well:

Equasis unfortunately no longer updates the info for yachts. You will see most are marked "dead"

Does anyone know the whereabouts of yacht Grimalkin since it was almost lost in the 1979 Fastnet Race?
