Boat Registration (RSA)

If you’re in the dark about the latest legal safety and procedural requirements to go boating in South Africa, you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to help you get on the water fast, with minimum effort, cost or hassle. If your boat exceeds 9m in length, or 15hp propulsion, it will legally require (a) a buoyancy certificate (by comparison to road vehicles this could be called a Roadworthy certificate); (b) a certificate of fitness (licence) and (c) the operator should have a skipper’s licence (driver’s licence).

To get answers to all of your questions, please download any of the free printable of the latest boating and fishing regulations (South Africa), brochures, articles & more below.
