Who can use the Holland ICP registration? Can any nationality register for Polish (EU) flag registration?
As of January 1, 2021 the Dutch ICP is no longer available for non-Dutch residents!However, many people were already switching from the Dutch ICP registration to the Polish yacht registration which is available for ALL nationalities. The reason for this is that the Dutch ICP registration was no longer valid in Spain, Italy & Portugal and it is just a boat ownership document while the Polish flag registration is actually a real flag document. It is actually less expensive to register in Poland also as the fee that starts at 469 Euro (depending on length of vessel) is a one-time fee with never any renewals! We can register you with a Polish (EU) flag in as little as 2 days and the registration process is very simple as you do not need a survey or tonnage certificate.

You can also register your vessel via us under the Dutch ZEEBRIEF which is an official Dutch flag registration
This registry is valid worldwide and is an actual flag registration and not a boat ownership registration like the Dutch ICP. The fee for this registration is higher then the Polish registration and does require a survey of your vessel. We can arrange this registration for EU citizens as well as non-EU citizens. The process consists of 2 steps; first step is submitting all documents (we do this for you) and the second step is having a one time inspection done of your vessel (see details below).
We do not need any survey or tonnage certificate to register your yacht as private use vessel, if it is less then 24 meters in length but an inspector of the Dutch maritime authority will need to visit your vessel in order to measure it and add markings with microdots on your vessel (anti-theft). The inspector does not do an actual survey, just a very basic check. You, do not have to bring the vessel to Holland as the inspector can visit you anywhere but his actual travel fees will be charged to you. This fee to the maritime authorities in Holland for the inspection, are not included in our rate and depends on the location of your boat or yacht. In Europe the average costs are between € 650,- and € 1000,-.
