Brazilian Historic Sailboat Registry

There are currently more than 50 sailboats registered in the Brazilian Historic Sailboat Registry (RVHB) compiled by SailBrasil.

The database includes details of the vessel, the designer, the builder, the dimensions, the construction, the service history, the current location and specific observations for each vessel (given the LGPD, we do not provide the information of the owners), as well as images of many of them (respecting image copyrights).

The Registry provides an overview of existing sailboats in Brazil and can be used to identify and prioritize significant sailboats that should be conserved, provide guidance to decision makers on funding allocation, and provide early warning of “at risk” sailboats. The database can also be a useful research tool, although confidential property information is always kept safe.

Almost all of the historic sailboats registered with the RVHB are privately owned. Others belong to museums and other entities.

What are the benefits of registering my sailboat and does it cost anything?

Example of Certificate

Registration is completely free and once accepted you will receive a certificate proving the vessel as being of historic importance.

Registration also entitles you to contact us for advice on restoring your vessel or anything else that needs assistance. The registry is also an informal community of common interests and therefore a good way to understand what goes on in the world of historic sailboats. Owners will receive regular electronic news and we are setting up a forum where owners and stakeholders can share relevant information and experiences.

How do I include my sailboat in the Brazilian Historic Sailboat Registry (RVHB)?

If you wish to register your vessel, find out if your vessel meets our current Registration Criteria (see below) and send an email to preservacao@sailbrasil.com.br.

Any data provided when registering your sailboat will be kept by the Brazilian Historic Sailboat Registry in perpetuity for the purposes of Preservation of the Brazilian Maritime Heritage (soon).

For those who would like to receive a list of RVHB sailboats, just ask for a copy by email preservacao@sailbrasil.com.br.


REGISTRATION CRITERIA

For a vessel to be registered in the Brazilian Historic Sailboat Registry (RVHB), it must meet our criteria.

The following explanation will help you understand what we are looking for and expand on some of the criteria so you can decide if your vessel will meet these requirements.

For a vessel to be considered for registration, it must:

Be a sailboat

The vessel must be a sailboat, or a vessel with also sail propulsion.

Be at least 30 years old

The age of the vessel at the time of registration must be at least 30 years from the start of construction or laying of the keel.

Have demonstrable and significant associations with Brazil

At least one of the following statements must be true about the vessel:

  • was built in Brazil
  • was built abroad but built for specific purposes related to Brazil or is related to Brazil by a significant event or person or spent at least 50% of its useful life in Brazilian waters.

being based in Brazilian waters

The vessel must currently be in coastal and inland waters of Brazil, as recognized by international maritime law. Static vessels based “onshore” in Brazil (as defined above) are also eligible for registration.

Be substantially intact

If more than 70% of the hull structure is intact, then the vessel may be considered for registration.

Any vessel that is less intact than this or no longer exists will be considered for registration if national significance can be demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Registration Subcommittee.

Please note that it is a basic requirement to provide as much historical information as possible. Without this we cannot assess your eligibility for the Brazilian Historic Sailboat Registry (RVHB). Any registration request will not be processed until we have received the necessary information via email preservecao@sailbrasil.com.br.
