Yup afaik. It is easy to do & costs 25 for 5 years. Saves loads of grief from the authorities.

Thanks for the quick reply, I'll go ahead and set it up.

Using RIB in Italy

Like PD says, the more you can produce the less hassle you're likely to have.

In many cases it's only what the local authorities think you need that's important. Whatever the rights and wrongs you really don't want to be in a position where you are arguing the toss with them.

Most countries require boats to be registered, so if you have an official number and a formal looking bit of paper it makes them comfortable. SSR registration does this.

Most countries require some sort of licensing for boat users, and a smart multilingual certificate with your photo on it makes them feel comfortable. An ICC does this.

Back these up with proof of VAT paid, insurance (it's always helpful to have at least the key points in the local language), passport and you're looking good. VHF certificate and and any other relevant qualifications are handy too.

Mine is only 2.7m with a 10hp engine. Will the SSR and Insurance certificate be enough?

The advice from the RYA recommends that you have an ICC. It sounds like you probably won't be asked for it, but it could save a load of aggro if someone does ask for it.

You still may have to prove competence (yours) & VAT status (the boats). If you have a VHF you will need ship & operators licence.

ICC = International Certificate of Competence
This is issued by the RYA on production of suitable evidence, usually PB2.

Re. Costs anywhere from free to "'Ow Much??"

During our two weeks in France the only time when I was asked for SSR was when leaving UK. They didn't need passports, they didn't need anything, the UK customs very politely asked for boat papers as the only thing of interest. I suspect it was to prove that the boat wasn't stolen, but there you go - get one for 25.
