It’s possible to register your yacht under the flag of the country you live in. However, the procedure could be complicated and might involve a substantial amount of bureaucratic red tape. Each country has its own procedure to enter a yacht into its flag register. The procedures in the Netherlands and Britain keep the amount of bureaucracy to a minimum. Furthermore, you’ll be sailing under the proud Dutch or British flag, which are both widely respected worldwide.
