I haven't tried to claim the ship from the shipyard, other than that one time, so i cannot confirm that it is reclaimable there. In theory, it should be, but i am not willing to challenge faith/trust cryptic programming, to try to delete it. It would suck to do that, just to realize the hard way that you cannot reclaim it again through the shipyard.
You can only claim it from the box, once. - on all characters, once, accountwide.
Edit: come to think about it, i don't think i had to claim it through the yard. I think the only thing i did was to use the yard to change between ships. -again, i would advise strongly against deleting it.

I have been testing using the T1 steamrunner and it can be discharged and claimed as much as you like. Practise on that one if you are not sure about the T5 one.
edit: For anybody who challenges to say it isnt in the shipyard, it appears there for your toon after the ship has been claimed from the store and opened. The items box i think is the one which puts it in the store for you.
