Should you register under Dutch or Belgium flag?
In order to answer this question, you should simply now if you want to use your boat in European waters or also in International waters and if you want to use it for private use or also for commercial (bareboat) charters.
In Holland, the standard registration is valid in all European waters but the Belgium registration is valid worldwide. The first type is simple to obtain via us in 3-5 days at a cost of 299.
Most of our clients use their vessel in European waters only and for them the standard Dutch Yacht Registration is perfect, fast and simple.
However, for those clients that want to use their vessel in International waters or for (bareboat) Charters, we recommend registering under Belgium flag.
