Register your boat in Poland (EU)
Registering your boat in Poland is great value! The registration process does not require too much paperwork, no survey is needed and the best part ,it is valid for life! This registration is an actual flag registration and as Poland is an full European Union member, it is valid all over the world.
There are minimal requirements to register your vessel in Poland
It is very easy for us to register your boat in Poland as the required documentation is very minimal and easy to provide (see our list below). One great advantage of a Polish yacht registration is the fact that no boat survey is needed!
You do not need to be a EU citizen to get a Polish Boat Registration
Anyone can own a yacht under the Polish flag but only EU nationals may hold the yacht under their personal name, while others would need to hold the yacht through an EU company. It is not required that the owner of the yacht resides in Poland or even in the EU. The place of residence of the owner is not relevant at all.
If you are not an European Union citizen, we will setup a LTD. for you and you will transfer the ownership of your vessel into this dormant LTD. As the LTD is only used for owning a boat you will not need to pay any taxes or do any government filings. A bill of sale will have to be signed to transfer ownership of your yacht to your new UK Ltd. We will make this bill of sale for you or you can make your own.
We can register in Poland from 5-7 days
We can register your vessel standard within 4 weeks but we also offer an “EXPRESS SERVICE” process. The Express registration means your vessel will be registered within 7 working days from the moment we receive your boat documents.
MMSI Radio License – for VHF, AIS, radar and EPIRB
Since it is very easy for us to obtain an MMSI license for your vessel, we highly recommend our clients to get this while applying for the Dutch ownership document. It only takes us 1 day to obtain your license and we only need a copy of your passport to apply. Having a MMSI license onboard avoids problems when you are checked by local authorities.
The cost of an MMSI license is only 149 Euro with a boat registration or 199 Euro if registered without.
