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?

We have the perfect alternative for Belgium Boat Registrations for only 469 Euro

Do you need a European Union flag registration that is valid around the world and is available to all nationalities – we can provide you with a Polish (EU) flag registration. This registration is valid for the lifetime of the boat and therefore you will not need to renew your paperwork. The whole process is very simple, as you do not need a yacht survey and can be done in 7 days if you supply us with the correct documents.

  2. Limited security equipment
  3. No Inspection
  4. There are no yearly taxes or expenses, except for a one time tax when registering the boat.
  5. Insurance, most insurance companies accept the Belgium flag, so you can still use your favourite insurance
  6. You can choose any European homeport for your vessel
  7. Register in 4 weeks
  8. Renewal is every 5 years
  9. Valid worldwide

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! Most 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 this company ownership also offers you liability protection as well as other advantages.

The Polish flag is probably our best value flag as the registration process is simple, inexpensive & fast. There are no surveys to be done, if your vessel is under 24 meters. 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 can get your provisional registration in 2 days and it is valid immediately. We take care of the whole process for you and translate all your current boat papers into Polish, as part of our fee. Our all-inclusive fee is from €469 and it is available for all nationalities (available for private use & bareboat charters).
