Start / Shipping / Register of Ships / Mortgages
Mortgages may be taken out on ships and ships under constructions
registered in the Swedish Ship Register. A mortgage
is issued as proof of the lien.
Stamp duty is charged at 0.4% of the mortgage
sum (applies only to liens on ships).
Calculation of stamp duty on mortgages in foreign currency is
predicated on the existence of a reliable exchange rate between the
mortgage currency and SEK; see the Stockholm Exchange website under
the heading “Currency Fixing.”
Boats cannot be mortgaged.
