Thumbs down European Certificate

Hi everyone,
I just bought a brand new X2 from a dealer in Fort Myers and now want to get a European certificate for this boat.
I asked Mastercraft who has the certificate for this type of boat to give me a copy but answers are off topic.http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ons/icon13.gif
Can someone help me? http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ons/icon10.gif
thank you

nothing on the UK site about a specific boat certification required for pleasure craft registration.

http://www.nidirect.gov.uk/index/inf...sure-craft.htm

Do you know more precisely what you are looking for?

Thank you for your reply but I'm not UK resident.
I want to ship my boat on the French island of Guadeloupe.
There are organizations who can certify the boat but when I asked the company, they told me to ask directly to Mastercraft cause they have the certificate for this type of boat and the right to duplicate.
I asked Mastercraft send me the european certificate and sent all the documents relating to the ship but the answers are off topic.

Update: since the boat left the factory without European certification after the manufacture - the european certificate can not be issued. The boat is europe certified at the factory prior to leaving the plant. It can not be done by MC after the fact - It will have to be done by a 3rd party.

Hi Mike,
Thank you for your answer.
Please could you obtain a copy of the certification of Type X2. It will allow me to claim the CE to an organization without to control inside of the hull but just motor.
Thanks

European Certificate

I know it doesn't help but you are importing a non-conform (no CE certification) boat into the EU (no matter where).



The manufacturer certifies conformity to EU regulations (what CE is) in the moment when the boat is in his hands (at the factory) and will most probably not do so later when the boat is not in his hands anymore because the boat might have changed (additions at the dealer for instance...)



btw. your boat will not get CE if it does not have metric units for at least the speedo, those english units are no official units within the EU



the only (legal) way I see is getting a third party certifier to do the certification for you, a certificate of a similar 2014 X2 might be a helpful checklist to work along with.



You also might check if there are exeptions from CE for private importers, but I don't think so, because that would mean you could never sell the boat afterwards

Can not be done via Mastercraft after the fact - it's like buying a US car and then trying to export or import to another country.

You will have to do it on your end somehow -

This is just a question, but if a boat is going to be used in international waters, don't you have the right to register the boat your country of origin? I seem to see a lot of boats in the Caribbean carrying flags from other countries.

I believe the owner would be required to show proof of residence at the very least (and possibly citizenship) in the country of origin. Or maybe incorporate in the country of origin and have the corporation as the boat's owner? I see a lot of yachts registered in Delaware. . . no personal property taxes, etc. Might be the "last resort" answer.
