Commercial boat and yacht registrations for the professional market

Lorrendraaier provides commercial yacht registrations of pleasure craft and (charter) boats. We work exclusively with professional parties: yacht brokers, shipyards, specialised lawyers. Do you want professional assistance, service and 100% objective advice? Then we are here to assist you.


For commercial use of a pleasure craft, a commercial yacht registration is usually necessary. This applies to, among others:


  • manned and unmanned hire (charter) of sailing and motor boats
  • rental of jet skis and personal watercrafts
  • organisation of boat trips for groups
  • fishing trips
  • other activities which may be regarded as commercial


The commercial use may influence the choice of a flag state. In addition, other aspects, such as fiscality’s, often play a role. Lorrendraaier is a specialist in yacht registrations and will be more than happy to advise you.


We create an overview of the possibilities and give clear and objective advice on the most suitable ship registers. Have you made your choice? Then we can organise the registration.

In which flag states is registration possible?

We mainly, but not only, register with European flag states. These are well regarded internationally.

Which flag state for commercial yacht registration?

The choice of a flag state can be complicated. Commercial registration often makes it even more complex. Shipping registers sometimes have different requirements depending on the shipping routes or the type of ship. What is the best flag state for a modern sailing yacht may be an unwise choice for a historic clipper. Sometimes it is even possible to exploit yacht commercially, on a incidentally basis, when registered as a regular yacht. At Lorrendraaier we gather all information for you. Accessible and clear. This way, we make your choice a lot easier.
