Boat registration: autonomous professionals thanks to the new “Portail Plaisance”

On October 2nd, 2019, the “Affaires Maritimes” launched the “Portail Plaisance”: a digital portal designed to simplify procedures, including boat registration, for yachtsmen and boating professionals.

Registration of boats under 7 metres
Initially, the “Portail Plaisance” is only open to those placing pleasure boats on the market, boat builders or dealers. After registering on the website, their accounts are approved by the administration. They can then complete all the registration procedures, autonomously, for boats under 7 metres, by forwarding the digital file. They can obtain the temporary navigation permit directly. The secured, dematerialized circulation card is sent afterwards.

Soon to open to yachtsmen
The “Portail Plaisance” intends to extend its services. On-line registration procedures should be available to yachtsmen for changes in ownership of secondhand boats by the end of 2019. In 2020, the service will gradually extend to changes in ownership for legal persons and co-ownerships.
