EU ICP Light Registration

Are you looking for a ‘light registration’ for your boat, yacht or jet ski? Then the Dutch EU ICP Light Registration might be the right choice for you. This boat registration works like a passport to show authorities who is the owner of the boat, yacht or jet ski, together with the specifications of the vessel. Registering for an EU ICP Light Registration means that your vessel will be registered by the Royal Dutch Watersport Association. They have been appointed by the Dutch government to handle yacht registrations in their name. Your vessel will however not be registered in the land register.

Do you need a boat registration in combination with a certificate of nationality? Then we recommend our highly respected Dutch Worldwide Registration, the popular and affordable Polish boat registration or the UK part 1 Registration. You can compare boat registrations to see which boat registration suits your needs.
