Polish Yacht Registration

Introduction

Poland has made a considerable effort in recent years  to update the country’s registration system for yachts which has resulted in the country becoming one of the leading EU flag state jurisdictions for the registration of yachts under 24 metres in length.

Oceanskies is a yacht registration and documentation agency specialising in the registration of yachts in various key jurisdictions including Poland.

The purpose of this guide to highlight the many advantages of the Polish yacht register and to introduce the Polish yacht registration services that we provide.

Poland

Poland is now among the fastest-growing economies in the European Union (EU). The economy of Poland is the sixth largest in the European Union and the largest among the former Eastern Bloc members of the EU.

The REJA 24

The REJA 24 registration system is an innovative electronic registration system developed by Government of Poland to provide a fast and economical way to register  yachts under 24 metres in loadline length.

Ports of Registry

The main Polish ports of registry are as follows:

Gdańsk

Gdynia

Hel

Kołobrzeg

Sopot

Szczecin

The Certificate of Polish Registry

Upon completion of registration formalities a Polish registered yacht is issued with a Certificate of Polish Nationality. The Polish Certificate of Nationality has no expiry and is therefore valid until the vessel is sold or there is a material change in its particulars.

The Polish Radio Licence

Radio licences for Polish registered vessels are issued by the Office of Electronic Communications (Urząd Komunikacji Elektronicznej).

Radiolicences are valid for ten years.

Note that a Polish registered vessel must hold a Polish radio licence as opposed to a radio licence issued by any other radiolicensing authority – for example a radio licence issued by the UK radiolicensing authority OFCOM is not valid for use on a Polish registered vessel.

Eligibility – Yachts

The REJA 24 system will accept private  yachts and commercial yachts up to 24 metres in loadline length that are based and operated anywhere in the world.

Eligibility – Owners

The REJA 24 will accept ownership by any individual regardless of their nationality or residemce.

The REJA 24 will accept ownership by any company or corporation regardless of their country of incorporation.

This results in the REJA 24 system being a truly international registration system.

The Charter of Polish Registered Yachts

To charter a commercial yacht under the Polish flag the vessel must hold a valid Karta Bezpieczeństwa Jachtu Morskiego (Yacht Safety Certificate).

The first step of the certification process is the performance of a technical inspection. For yachts under 15.00 metres in length the inspection is carried out by the Zespół Techniczny Polskiego Związku Żeglarskiego (Offshore Technical Committee of Polish Yachting Association) or for yachts over over 15.00 metres in length by the Polski Rejestr Statków (Polish Register of Shipping).

The yacht must then be equipped depending vessel length and sailing area as detailed in the relevant merchant shipping legislation, (namely 'Obwieszczenie Ministra Gospodarki Morskiej i Żeglugi Śródlądowej z dnia 1 września 2016 r. w sprawie ogłoszenia jednolitego tekstu rozporządzenia Ministra Transportu, Budownictwa i Gospodarki Morskiej w sprawie bezpiecznego uprawiania żeglugi przez jachty morskie Dz.U. 2016 poz. 1557').

All yachts to be commercially registered must undergo a final Port State Control inspection to confirm compliance with the applicable regulations.
