Why is a navigation licence not necessary for sailing with Happy Boats’ sloops?

The law stipulates when a navigation licence for small or large boats is required from Article 13 of the inland navigation decree. Article 16 stipulates when a navigation licence for small boats is required as a minimum. The most important sections of that law are described below.

A navigation licence for small boats is required to operate:
a. Leisure craft of at least 15 metres but less than 25 metres in length;
b. Vessels of less than 15 metres in length that can reach speeds in excess of 20 kilometres per hour on the water by means of mechanical propulsion.

Happy Boats’ vessels are less than 15 metres in length and travel at speeds of under 20 kilometres per hour. A navigation licence for a small boat is therefore not required to operate Happy Boats’ sloops and boats.

What is the maximum horsepower for an unlicensed boat?
In the past, the law stipulated that a navigation licence was mandatory if the boat or sloop had an engine with a capacity in excess of 9.9 HP. For a number of years now, a boat’s engine capacity, or HP or kW, has no longer played a role in assessing whether or not a navigation licence is required.
