Hong Kong Yacht Registration or register in Poland (see bottom of page)

We can register your boat in Hong Kong or in 20 other flag registration jurisdictions. As the largest flag registration company we have a lot of experience in the registration of yachts in Hong Kong.

When registering your boat it is important to first discuss with a boat registration specialist the best place to do this. This choice will depend on a number of factors including; type of use (private, bare boat or commercial), size and tonnage of your boat, private or corporate owned and even if the VSAT has been paid (if in Europe).

Start by contacting us and give us a short explanation of your personal circumstances. We can then advise you on where to register your boat. Your nationality does NOT matter as there are many “open” register countries that will accept boat owners from any country!

One recommendation is: register your boat in Poland from € 420,- and it is valid for life (no renewal cost) 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 Polish Registration is an actual vessel flag registration and is valid around the world with no limitations.

The whole process is very simple, as you do not need a yacht survey and we can arrange a fully valid provisional registration in 2 days. The cost is from €420,- this is all-inclusive and a one-time fee with no renewal fee.
