Registering your boat in Poland is great value! The registration process does not require too much paperwork, no survey is needed and the best part is; it is valid for life! This registration is an actual flag registration and as Poland is an full European Union member, it is valid all over the world.
Anyone can own a yacht under the Polish flag but only EU nationals may hold the yacht under their personal name, while others would need to hold the yacht through an EU company. It is not required that the owner of the yacht resides in Poland or even in the EU. The place of residence of the owner is not relevant at all.
If you are not an European Union citizen, we will setup a LTD. for you and you will transfer the ownership of your vessel into this dormant LTD. As the LTD. is only used for owning a boat you will not need to pay any taxes or do any government filings. A bill of sale will have to be signed to transfer ownership of your yacht to your new UK Ltd. We will make this bill of sale for you or you can make your own.
We can register your vessel within 6-8 weeks, if you have provided us with the requested documents below.
