New changes in Belgium Flag Registrations in effect from September , 2019

The Belgium government has decided to make changes in the procedure of Belgium Flag registration that are effective from September 1, 2019. The main change is that from this date you can only register a vessel under Belgium flag if you are a citizen, resident or a company in Belgium that is at least 50% owner of the vessel. All existing licenses that are currently valid for 5 years will not be effected by this new law until they are due for renewal.

We have several other options to register your boat!

There are several other options to register your boat and some of them are even better than the Belgium flag. Your choice of options depends on your boating needs. The most important considerations are: Where do you use your boat? Do you use it private or commercial? Do you expect to own the vessel for a long time? Do you have a survey or can you get one easily?

Based on the above questions we always have a perfect solution for your flag registration needs. See our table below for a quick compare of the different flag and boat registrations. Read also our detailed guide below for more information on the different boat registrations or contact us and we will help you.

Boat Registration Guide - Where To Register You Boat

The first thing to understand is that under which flag you sail has nothing to do with your nationality! All the registrations we offer are available to any nationality. In some cases we need to put the ownership of your vessel in a new dormant company (that you own) in order to comply with the rules but this is only an advantage, as these companies also offer you protection from liability and have several other advantages.

The Dutch registration is actually a document of ownership but in that capacity, is accepted in most European countries when arriving in a port and handing over your documents. The only country where the Dutch document occasionally gives problems is Portugal and therefore we recommend clients that visit Portugal to use one of our other registrations, which are actual flag registrations and accepted all around the world. The Dutch ICP document can be obtained in 3 days, so it is ideal if you just bought a boat in another country and need to bring it home to where you live within Europe.

The Delaware (USA) registration is very straight forward with minimal paperwork, no survey needed and can be obtained within 3 days. It is valid around the world and is highly recommended.

The Polish flag is probably our best value flag as the registration process is simple, with no surveys to be done and the best part is; you get the registration for life, so no more renewals! Since Poland is a full European Union member, this flag document is accepted anywhere in the world and comes in 4 languages. We take care of the whole process for you and translate all your current boat papers into Polish as part of our fee. You do not need a boat survey for Poland if your yacht is less then 15 meters. both at the end

The United Kingdom (UK) registration entitles you to fly the red ensign flag which is held in high regard within the maritime community. The paperwork is not that much and the flag is valid for 5 years and offers a very easy renewal process. The registration is similar in the UK for both private use as well as for commercial use and the fees are the same. The United Kingdom does require a survey but this survey can be done in your own home country.

The Malta flag is also available for any nationality but is used more by boat owners with larger yachts or for commercial operations as the fees are a bit higher than most other jurisdictions.

The Belgium registration The Belgium government has decided to make changes in the procedure of Belgium Flag registration that are effective from September 1, 2019. The main change is that from this date you can only register a vessel under Belgium flag if you are a citizen, resident or a company in Belgium that is at least 50% owner of the vessel.
