Do you have a HIN number. That would at least tell us what make and model the boat is... The HIN number should be marked on the starboard side of the transom.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

There is no HIN nş, this boat has been captured by the spanish custom in the year 2003, I only know the name "Shambhala" and the registry "657311 WICKFORD RI" in 1982.
It was under US flag.
It will be sold in a auction at the end of the month.

According to the USCG Documentation lookup site:


Vessel Name: SHAMBHALA USCG Doc. No.: 657311
Vessel Service: RECREATIONAL IMO Number: *
Trade Indicator: Recreational Call Sign: *
Hull Material: FRP (FIBERGLASS) Hull Number: BVA432290882
Ship Builder: * Year Built: 1982


Length (ft.): 42.5
Hailing Port: WICKFORD RI Hull Depth (ft.): 5.5
Owner: Hull Breadth (ft.): 12.2
Gross Tonnage: 14
Net Tonnage: 12
Documentation Issuance Date: November 03, 2003 Documentation Expiration Date: November 30, 2004
Previous Vessel Names: RUNNING ON EMPTY
Previous Vessel Owners: GARY E MILLER


The HIN BVA432290882, indicates that it was produced by Barre Boats, but this is probably in error... it is probably foreign built and using a MIC code issued by someone other than the USCG. I doubt it was built by Barre Boats, since the description of the company says that it wasn't founded until 1985, and that it produced mainly small work boats.

BTW, interpreting the HIN, see here.

More on HIN's here. Given the BVA MIC code, I'm guessing the boat was actually built in the Far East or Europe and then imported into the United States.

Joesaila, SD,

All good info. One thing I'll add is that the USCG will recycle HIN builder codes if a builder has shut down.

If we could find a list of recycled builder codes, or an HIN registry from the early '80s, we should be able to give this fellow an answer.

Very true. My old sabot (1974) says right on it (stamped into the wood) that it was built by Melcraft in Costa Mesa California yet the builder code in the HIN (MEL) comes up as Dixie Boats LTD in Newton, NC (right up the road from me oddly enough).

It's actually pretty stupid IMHO to recycle HIN MICs. But with three places and 26 letters, you only have about 17000 total combinations.

You'd think that when they ran out of letters they would have added a place.instead of recycling. That's what they're doing with IP addresses

Technically, they're adding TWO places. IPv4 vs. IPv6.
