As long as you get the manufacturer code and country right, there shouldn't be too much issue.
the 2 first letters = code of the country
the 3 other letters : code of the manufacturer (MIC : Manufacture Identification Code)
the 5 other letters (letters and digits) = Serial number of the boat.
the next 2 letters: Month of construction.
the next 2 digits: Year of construction.
