RCD for Narrowboat build in UK pre 1998


Featured Posts

If it was built in 1983 then there was no such thing as the RCD at that time.

You will need proof of the build date (normally a builders bill of sale)

 

You do not need any RCD paperwork, but you may well have to pay VAT under the new rules.

 

 

As of 31st December 2020 all UK recreational boats should have been issued with a 'cerfictate of location' by their mooring provider (no thoughts about CCers)

otherwise UK VAT would be charged on the boat.

This works both ways, as any boat now being exported from the UK has EU VAT applied to it.

 

This is a typical letter/certificate :

Is this a lumpy water thing? I've never had a sniff of a letter like that

 

 

No, obviously more likely that a 'lumpy water boat' could go into EU waters but it was a national requirement and part of the 'leaving Europe' rules for ALL recreational boats.

 

 

I didn't get one for my 'inland waterway' boat either so requested one from the marina, which they then did. I wouldn't worry, it is typical of the lack of complying with the rules so commonly found on the waterways - It'll only come back to bite you in the bum if you ever take you NBs abroad, or try and export it, so, don't worry..

 

The certificate I got for my canal boat went with it when it was sold.

 

This was the one I got for my other 'lumpy water boat'
