How Holland Boat Registration Services relieves you

No matter what type of boat you have, Dutch Boat Registration Services will register your boat professionally, fast and with the highest possible level of service. We will take care of the entire registration process. We do this with our regular partners. This is how we can assure reliable and efficient handling.

For boat owners in and out of the EU

You do not have an EU passport? No problem! We carry out an EU Light Registration by creating an English Limited for you. On paper this Limited will be the owner of your boat, while you are the shareholder and director of this Limited. The first year this Limited will cost you € 350. After that it will cost you €250 per year.

Domicile

Domicile means that a Dutch address will be used for the registration of your boat. In this case we will use the address from Dutch Boat Services. Domicile is a solution for boat owners who don’t have a Dutch nationality and a Dutch address. Without a Dutch address it is impossible to legally register your boat under the Dutch flag. This is why domicile is included in the price.
