For our international customers

Whether you have an EU passport or one from a non-EU country, we have you covered. If you are from outside the European Union, we will set up an English Limited for you. The English Limited will stand in as the owner of the boat on the official documentation while you will be the official director and shareholder. The English Limited comes for a fee of €350 for the first year and then €250 every year thereafter.


For our clients who do not reside in Holland and do not have a Dutch address, we provide a domicile service where we provide a Dutch address for the purpose of registering your yacht. This is necessary for you to complete your Dutch yacht registration, and it is included as part of the fee.
