WORLDWIDE BOAT & YACHT REGISTRATION

Where to register your boat?

When you purchase a motor or sailing vessel it is very important to decide on the best suitable country to register your yacht. There are many different countries that offer a favorable registration but each of them has pros and cons. It is important that you understand these before deciding on where to register. When you decide on a country to be registered in, the vessel is subject to the laws of the country of registration. It is therefore important that the boat registration country you have registered in, offers the conveniences that you need. 

 

Private use vs commercial use:
It is also important to know that some countries have an easy registration for private use vessels but not for commercial use vessels or the other way around. We can currently register your boat for private use in the UK or Malta.

 

In which countries can I register my boat?
We can register your boat in the country that is best suited for your vessel. We currently offer registrations in Holland, Belgium, Delaware, Malta, Poland and the UK. Have a look at the detailed descriptions down below, and decide which country is best for you or contact us.
