French boating

I’m looking at a 5m RIB with a 70hp engine which I would like to bring to France when lockdown is all over. However I have been reading online and it appears that I need a listen ce or permit to ride the boat in France. Is this true? Does anyone know anything or have any experience in this subject?

Yes, you need an ICC (International Certificate of Competence) .......... if you take a RYA power Boat 2 course, then you can apply to the RYA for an ICC .............

Check the RYA website and there's a pretty good summary - in addition to an ICC/qualification/proof of competence, if stopped/asked you need to be able to demonstrate vessel registration (SSR or equivalent), proof of insurance, ownership/VAT status on the vessel, VHF radio licence + operator qualification, RCD compliance (CE plate), etc.

We've never been stopped on our sailing yacht after may incursions into France and cruises in Brittany, but know plenty of people who have been asked for some or all of these evidences.

Bumping an old post rather than starting a new one...

Thinking about taking my Honwave with me to France for use on the sea. It is not on the small ships register. Do I need to do this before using abroad?

I have power boat level 2 so can apply for ICC.

Anything else to be aware of?

Yes you do need to register it before using it abroad. There is a very high likelihood you’ll need to produce the registration document along with your insurance if you visit any ports or marinas. Even if you don’t you could well be “pulled over” at sea. I run two British registered vessels out of Cannes in the south of France. We had two routine boardings last summer. This is very common all over Europe.

I have just started another thread on the registering of a SIB with SSR but hopefully someone can help me here. On the SSR site it is asking for a lot of documents which I don't have. Such as the

International tonnage certificate (ITC69)
Certificate of survey for tonnage and measurement
Builders certificate
Certificate of incorporation
CSR Form 2


Are all these really required and do you think Boatworld would be able to provide them? Thanks

Are you looking at the correct page? You should be on the SSR part 3. This is for small craft upto 24m, 300t iirc.

You should be here

Ps, just seen that you’ve asked the same question 3 times in different sections. You might want to ask the admin to delete 2 of them to avoid confusion & multiple posts.

From memory those are all options on the SSR registration page but are optional documents to upload. For a recreational boat all you need is proof of ownership (invoice / bill of sale) and proof of your own identity.

If you click on the link I posted, it’s pretty straight forward. I take it you’re a UK resident. To register on the SSR, you have to reside in the UK for 185 days/year.
