From the 3rd August 2017, all part fitted boats including a basic sailaway, now have to be CE marked and compile with the new directive (2013/53/EU).

Therefore anyone purchasing any canalboat sailaway must have the necessary paperwork from the boat builder which is required of a completed craft. This includes:-

  • a builders plate
  • a CE mark
  • 14 digit craft identification number (CIN) this is to be carried in two places on the boat, one should be hidden
  • a owners manual
  • a declaration of Conformity

The CE mark shows the craft is compliant when it’s placed on the market for the first time.  It will remain valid to any further alterations to the craft taken place, which would then require a re-assessment of the craft.

If you require any further information, please contact ourselves and we will be happy to help.
