Thanks Matthias,
The site you mention seems weather related. I did find out the IMO
itself is opposing geo data of vessels, yet the US coast guard plans
it's own way : http://www.gsnmagazine.com/cms/features/news-analysis/92.html
Due to piracy (not the download kind) and/or terrorism this kind of
info is kept under the hat...

It seems it's AIS data I'm after :
http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/enav/ais/AISFAQ.htm which includes the
IMO-number if available.

http://www.shipais.com/ and http://www.digital-seas.com/  offer that
kind of info... still digging.
