Moving to Belgium

Hello guys,

In three month time I have to move to Brussels (new job) and I would like to take my RIB with me. Is anyone here from Belgium or someone who knows something about ribbing in this country? any advise will be more than welcome.

Thank you.

From what I have seen driving through Belgium there are plenty of big rivers and canals to go at, I think you may need to do a test though but not sure if that's Holland or Belgium
Good luck with the job.

If You don't have a CEVNI license already, that is something You will need i think both in Belgium and Holland on the inland waters.

Know a few people from Belgium/Brussels and most of them come over to Holland for their Ribbing.
Inland waters around Gent, Belgium coast Zeebrugge/Nieuwpoort and Holland (Raamsdonksveer/Drimmelen where I have my Scorpion on a trailer).
Advantage for the last one is: lots of directions to go, no speed limits, nice places to visit, same distance to drive from Brussels.

In Holland we have ICC (international license to drive a fast boat) and that's ok for all over Europe. Maybe you get something like that in the UK.
And there is ICP (the same, but it proves that you own the boat).
We get both at the ANWB (like your AA).
ANWB - Vrije tijd -

You also need a registration number on the boat.
Insurance is not required, but recommended.

Thanks a lot... Here on Jersey I do not need anything, just insurance.
What with inland waters? Can I go whenever I want?

In Holland we have 2 kinds of licenses. VB I for almost all waters and VB II for some bigger waters. For fast boats (> 20km/hr) you need at least VB I.
I'll try and post a map of the waters around Raamsdonksveer.

On this map you'll find Brussels and I put in Raamsdonksveer. From there to Rotterdam is less than one hour. In 1.5 hours you're on the Noordzee.
Near Raamsdonksveer there is the "Biesbosch" a national park with lots to do (10km/hr).
Also put in Westerschelde, Oosterschelde and IJsselmeer there you need VB II. Which is a license with more navigation and meteorology. All the rest is VB I.
