"I have just bought a boat that has a current (2015) IRC certificate, and need to transfer it into my name"
You will need to apply for a new certificate, as change of ownership invalidates the certificate. If you are not sure whether the certificate is current you can check on the online listings. You should make sure you have a copy of the last certificate as you need to declare whether there have been any changes and whether details on the certificate are correct. We can help with this if you do not get a copy with the boat.
We are currently offering re-registration at a special rate of just £1.50 per metre (ex VAT).
