There are a huge number of people importing boats from the USA and saving money or finding that boat you just cant get in Europe. Almost all these boats, there are very few exceptions, will require the CE Certification. This is a legal requirement in all EU member states and EEA countries. Since January 1st 2006 it has been a legal requirement to have Certification issued by a notified body. CE marking is required before the boat is put into service or offered for sale, either privately or trade. Remember if a qualifying boat doesn't have the CE mark and CE Certification to go with it, it is illegal to use or advertise for sale. Some European countries police the recreational craft directive (RCD) more strictly than others, but even so, the penalties can be severe for using a boat not correctly certified.

Each boat must be physically inspected, and a report compiled outlining the standards used. Motor(s) are also assessed and must be compliant with the recreational craft directive. This may sound frightening but in reality it can be a fairly straightforward exercise. On completion a new CIN (craft identification number) is issued along with the CE Mark and certification.

If you are in doubt or require specific information about your boat, or about a boat you are buying please call, there is a very good chance we will have assessed a similar boat and can advise what work is likely to be required, we do not charge for this service.  Usually modifications will include but not be limited to the following:-

  • Extra manually operated or portable bilge pump
  • Battery master switch
  • An automatic fire extinguisher in the engine area
  • Portable fire extinguisher
  • The fuel filler should be labelled "petrol" in the UK or equivalent elsewhere.
  • Non return valves to bilge pump discharge
  • Labelling to indicate other safety aspects.

Some boats may require additional work others may require less. We have completed inspections and certification on boats from the following manufacturers:-

  • Aquasport, Baja, Baha, Bayliner, Bluewater, Boston Whaler, Campion, Chaparral, Chris Craft, Correct Craft, Cobalt, Crownline, Doral, Formula, Four Winns, Glasstream, Glastron, Hydrasports, Mako,  Mastercraft, Larson, Mariah, Maxum, Monterey, Nautique, Osprey, Pioneer, Regal, Rinker, Scarab, Sea Ray, Sea Swirl, Seadoo, Seasport, Stingray, Tahoe, Trophy, Tracker, Wellcraft, Yamaha and many many more.

What do you get for your money?

  • CE Certificate of conformity issued by notified body
  • Declaration of conformity
  • Inspection report
  • CE or Builders plate (the CE mark)
  • CIN plate (craft identification number)
  • Supplement for the owners manual
  • Everything to keep you legal

Your boat CE-marking and certification to comply with the recreational craft directive is a legal requirement in the European Union member states and the European Economic Area countries.

The countries are: • Austria • Belgium • Bulgaria • Croatia• Cyprus • Czech Republic • Denmark • Estonia • Finland • France (including French Polynesia, Tahiti, Bora Bora and FWI Martinique, St Martin) • Germany • Greece • Hungary• Iceland • Ireland • Italy • Latvia • Lichtenstein • Lithuania • Luxemburg • Malta • Norway • Poland • Portugal• Romania • Slovakia • Slovenia • Spain • Sweden • The Netherlands • We provide certification service in all these countries as well as USA, Switzerland and UK.
