The CE-Certificate

The CE-certificate is a European declaration that shows that a yacht meets the ISO-standards.

The CE-certificate guarantees that a yacht conforms to European standards set by law and has been safely produced. A yacht has to be issued with a CE-certificate before it enters the water.  Almost all yachts built after June 15th 1998 have a CE-certificate.


To find out whether the yacht you’re interested in has a CE-certificate, you must look for three things:

  • Builder’s plate
  • HIN-number
  • Owner’s manual


If the yacht doesn’t have a CE-certificate it will be much more difficult to sell. We also know from experience, that most countries will ask for a CE-certification during the registration of the ship.
