Boat certificate: Rental of boats

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If you rent out pleasure craft or personal watercraft for non-commercial use, you will need a boat certificate for each vessel.

The boat certificate is issued at the request of the operator. The boat certificate can be issued subject to conditions and can be linked to requirements.

The issue of the boat certificate must be revoked if

  • the watercraft loses its status as a recreational craft within the meaning of this ordinance or essential equipment is inoperable or no longer present, or
  • the recreational craft is rented out with the provision of a skipper or crew or for the purpose of commercial use.

Who should I contact?

To the Waterways and Shipping Office (WSA) in whose district the pleasure craft or personal watercraft is permanently moored or in which the operating site is located.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

The boat certificate is valid for a period of two years, or three years in the case of newly built boats. A subsequent extension of two years is possible after prior examination.

Legal basis

§ Section 5 Ordinance on the commissioning of recreational craft and personal watercraft and their rental and commercial use in coastal areas (See-Sportbootverordnung - SeeSpbootV)

What else should I know?

Further information can also be found on the website of the Waterways and Shipping Directorate North (WSD Nord).
