Changes to Environment Agency Boat Registration Fees

The Environment Agency (EA) have recently announced a 6.4% increase in boat registration fees for 2012, which is also to be applied to the British Rowing/EA  block booking agreement from 1st April 2012. It has been agreed that the additional fees will be raised as follows –

Unpowered Craft

EA based clubs:

  • Adult boats – £20.50 each (increase of £1.50)
  • Junior boats – £ 6.00 each (increase of £1)

Non EA based clubs (no increase on 2011 charges)

  • Adult boats – £12.00 each
  • Junior boats – £ 5.00 each
Powered craft

The concession offered in 2011 for powered craft of a nil charge has been withdrawn as this has resulted in substantial loss of revenue to the EA.  However, they are offering a special block booking rate for British Rowing registered launches at less than half the standard charge, currently between £78 and £150. As before powered craft must have insurance in place as required by the EA.

  • Powered craft £35.00 each

Non-EA based clubs may prefer to purchase temporary registrations direct from the Environment Agency. For more information please see the Environment Agency website:

Clubs are now able to renew or apply for new EA Boat Registrations for the 1st April 2012 – 31st March 2013 registration period through Club Management. For more information on how to make your clubs application and full details of the scheme please see:
