Insurance

You must have in force an insurance policy for all powered boats which covers third-party liabilities of at least one million pounds, issued by an insurer authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. The insurance must be valid for the full duration of the registration. The EA do not need a copy of the insurance certificate, but they may carry out sample checks on declarations.

Boat Safety

You must ensure that all powered boats comply with the EAs construction and equipment standards. These standards are set out in the Boat Safety Scheme Essential Guide (2005 edition): see: Boat Safety Scheme – 2nd ed. BSS Essential Guide or the Recreational Craft Directive (for launches first placed on the market since 16 June 1996). Further details can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/register-a-boat.
