Using RIB in Italy

Please can anyone tell me the regulations, costs and requirements of using a 4.5m Zodiac RIB with a Mercury 25 outboard around the Italian coast are. Thanks

For starters, this is in addition to the usual foreign cruising requirements e.g. SSR/VAT evidence etc.

Thanks Dave. I'm completely new to this boating lark and finding the correct info seems quite tricky. As far as I can see, we need insurance and all relevant safety gear, but I can't find if there are other costs for an RIB of this size and type.

As a starting point I would have the following:-

SSR - Vital, this proves that the vessel is UK registered
Insurance - speaks for itself, having the Italian translation was a newe on on me, I need to speak to my insurers
ICC - not vital, but highly recomended

If wenhave the boat permanantly in Italy, I assume it has to be registered in Italy. Is there a size of boat where it doesn't need to be registered in uk.

If you are a British citizen, you can register the boat as British on the SSR, there may be advantages & disadvantages to going either way. You are wandering off my competency area now, so can't advise.

In my dealings with French authorities, I've found the scattergun approach works best. Get as much paperwork together as you can, get the important bits laminated & when they ask for "papiers" just bury 'em, drop the lot on 'em & watch their face turn from "I'm going to give the Rosbiff a hard time, to merde! where did this lot come from?"

Sounds like a plan. Presumably you have to pay a fee to put the boat in the water, or can you just launch it and go

Don't want to hijack this thread but do all sibs and ribs require a SSR? I'm going to France in August and planning on taking my sib with me.
