Have you just bought a boat and want to register it? It has arrived, after so many years, The long-awaited computerized registry. The data will then be digitized on a Central Telematics Archive (Actn).

Starting January 1, all boats will be able to register

For now, it is only new boats that can be automatically enrolled in the new registry, while from January 1, 2020, non-new boats can be enrolled.

Here comes the Sted

Access to the Central Archives can be done through the Sailor’s Telematics Desk (STED). Basically it is a system of offices where registrations are to be made and which will be used for all kinds of administrative paperwork. For now, the active STEDs are the Port Authorities and provincial DMV offices, to which agencies and consulting firms are being added.

How to register the boat

For new boats: shipyards are required to notify UCINA of the chassis number of the unit built (this step is needed, we were told by the Confindustria Nautica-which has been fighting for years in favor of the establishment of the Registry-to “homogenize” a complex world, where the phenomenon of self-building is more substantial than in the car world), and the latter will notify the DMV.

When going to register the boat with STED, the chassis number declared by the owner must match the one already in the Archives. Once registration has taken place, the chassis number will be deleted and no more boats can be registered using that number.

As for boats already registered by non-digital method, registration can take place starting next January: it will not be free of charge. In case of either new hull registration or re-registration, the fee will be 35.38 euros (plus 16 euros stamp duty).

Here is a breakdown of all the STED rates
