We register boats in Holland and in Poland
Yacht registration for all nationalities
JAN 1, 2021 - IMPORTANT CHANGES REGARDING THE DUTCH ICP BOAT REGISTRATION
As of January 1, 2021 it is no longer possible to register your vessel thru the Dutch ICP boat registration!
However, we have TWO perfect solutions that are real flag registrations:
Option 1/ Polish Flag Registration:
Do you still need a European Union flag registration that is valid around the world and is available to all nationalities? We can provide you with a Polish (EU) flag registration. This registration is valid for the lifetime of the boat and therefore you will not need to renew your paperwork.
The Polish Registration is an actual vessel flag registration and not an ownership document, like the Dutch ICP and is valid around the world with no limitations. The whole process is very simple, as you do not need a yacht survey and we can arrange a fully valid provisional registration in 2 days. The cost is from 469 Euro – this is all-inclusive and a one-time fee with no renewal fee.

Option 2/ Dutch International Certificate of Registry (“Zeebrief”):
The Dutch, International certificate of registry is the gold standard in flag registrations for yachts. This registry is valid worldwide and is an actual flag registration and not a boat ownership registration like the Dutch ICP. We can arrange this registration for EU citizens as well as non-EU citizens. The process consists of 2 steps; first step is submitting all documents (we do this for you) and the second step is having a one time inspection done of your vessel (see details below).
We do not need any survey or tonnage certificate to register your yacht as private use vessel, if it is less then 24 meters in length but an inspector of the Dutch maritime authority will need to visit your vessel in order to measure it and add markings with microdots on your vessel (anti-theft). The inspector does not do an actual survey, just a very basic check. You, do not have to bring the vessel to Holland as the inspector can visit you anywhere but his actual travel fees will be charged to you. This fee to the maritime authorities in Holland for the inspection, are not included in our rate and depends on the location of your boat or yacht. In Europe the average costs are between € 650,- and € 1000,-.
The registration will take about 6 weeks. When the registry part is done, we will immediately schedule an appointment for you, to have the inspector visit your vessel for the one time inspection. If you are in a hurry, we can arrange a provisional registration for you, while you wait for the inspection of your vessel. This provisional registration is fully valid for 6 months and gives you plenty of time to have the vessel inspected. The cost for this optional provisional registration is 300 Euro.
