Register your boat in Holland or in Poland
JAN 1, 2021 - IMPORTANT CHANGES REGARDING HOLLAND YACHT REGISTRATION
The Dutch Maritime Authorities (watersport verbond) have informed us of a new law that is starting per direct; THE HOLLAND YACHT REGISTRATION IS NOW ONLY AVAILABLE FOR DUTCH RESIDENTS.
However, yacht owners from any country in the world can still register their vessel under Polish (EU) flag. This flag registration is actually better then the Dutch ICP as it is a real flag registration that is valid around the world.
We can register you with a Polish (EU) flag in as little as 2 days for a fee from 469 Euro. This best part is that the registration is valid for the life , so you will not need to renew every year. The registration process is very simple and you do not need a survey or tonnage certificate. See all details here: https://www.poland-yacht-registration.com/
EXISTING CLIENTS WHO CURRENTLY HAVE AN DUTCH ICP REGISTRATION
All clients who currently have an Dutch ICP registration can be assured that their current ICP stays valid until the expiry date of their registration. We will arrange for the necessary DELETION CERTIFICATE FOR FREE, if you change your registration to a Polish or any other flag registration with us. Just call, email or WhatsApp us and we will get it done in as little as 2 days.
You have purchased a new or used boat somewhere in the world and the broker asks you; “under which registration will the boat be registered?” Many countries have very complicated boat registrations or have all kinds of maritime restrictions or worse, very high fees for registering your boat. The good news is; you do not have to register the boat in the country you live! If you are a resident in Holland you can register for a Dutch ICP Registration. If you are from any country in the world and want a easy, inexpensive and reputable EU flag for your vessel, you can register under the Polish flag in 2 days!
We are the largest registrar of Dutch (Holland) and Polish flagged vessels. Our multi-lingual staff will take care of everything! You send us the paperwork, via email and we take care of it for the lowest price in the market.
Are there other options to register my boat besides Holland and Poland?
Yes, Poland is simply the easiest, fastest flag registration we offer but some boat owners still prefer to register in other jurisdictions. We can also register your vessel in the United Kingdom, Gibraltar, Delaware (USA), Langkawi, (Malaysia), Cayman Islands or the British Virgen Islands. Just check on top the choices under OTHER FLAGS.
Is the Holland yacht registration same as a flag registration?
No, the Dutch ICP registration are not the same as a FLAG registration. The ICP registration in Holland is however accepted in most of Europe as an ownership document with the exception of Portugal and recently Italy. If you prefer to have an actual flag registration we can take care of this for you by registering your boat in Holland with an actual flag registration or ZEEBRIEF as it is called. This is an actual flag registration that is valid worldwide. However, we recommend to use the Poland (EU) or Delaware (USA) flag registrations. Both these jurisdictions offer a fast and inexpensive real flag registration that is valid in Europe and the rest of the world.
Where is the Dutch Boat Registration Valid?
It is valid in most European waters for private use. We do recommend that clients that use their vessel in Portugal, Spain or Italy register with our Polish flag registration service. In Portugal and Spain it is clear that the authorities do not accept the Dutch ICP and in some ports of Italy, we have recently heard that the local authorities are no longer accepting the Dutch ICP registration. Although it is currently not everywhere in Italy, we recommend our clients to register in Poland as this registration is an actual flag registration and is valid worldwide and for the life of the boat with no renewal fees!
