The feeling, for those who have had the misfortune to experience it, is very bad. You arrive at your depot, your warehouse, or in the clearing of your house in the country, where you have placed your boat for the winter months, and you find it without the outboard, or worse you can’t find it anymore. Stolen! A mix of anger and sadness. But as of today, for those whose marine engine or boat has been stolen, there is a tool that, if it does not serve to return the asset, at least prevents or limits its exploitation by thieves.

UCINA – Confindustria Nautica launches online database for stolen outboard motors and pleasure craft. Following reports received from numerous industry operators complaining about the theft of marine engines and pleasure craft from their warehouses, UCINA has activated an online database in which victims of theft can enter the identifying data of stolen goods to prevent or at least hinder their fencing. At the same time, the user who has doubts about the provenance of an engine or pleasure craft offered for sale can check whether it has been reported as stolen goods.

How to report stolen property

Those who wish to enter completely free of charge in the database made available by Ucina online must follow the following procedure: enter in the appropriate form(INSERT NEW COMPLAINT), their personal data and for each stolen engine (or pleasure craft) the following information and a copy of the complaint:

  • manufacturer
  • serial number or CIN
  • color
  • place of theft
  • copy complaint

After uploading the file with the copy of the complaint and submitting the form, the documentation will be automatically sent to the mailbox entered in the appropriate head a file containing the data entered: once verified the correctness of the same (reporting any inaccuracies) such a file must be printed and signed and sentbyfax to 0105531104 or by e-mail to. .

By signing the sheet, the user gives consent to the online publication of the data and agrees to report the discovery of stolen engines or pleasure craft so that they can be deleted from the database.

The information reported in the database relates only to the stolen motor or pleasure craft and does not contain references to the individuals who reported the theft.
