No, the Dutch ICP registration is 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, Spain 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 faster and inexpensive, real flag registration that is valid in Europe and the rest of the world.
