See our most common questions related to the Hong Kong boat registration.
The Hong Kong Marine Department does not need a specific license for the operation of pleasure yachts under 15 m, but the operator is still required to adhere to the Marine Department's safety rules and regulations. Yachts longer than 15 m require a valid Hong Kong Pleasure Vessel Driving License (PVDL) or a valid Pleasure Vessel Driving License from a recognized foreign nation, and they must also adhere to the Marine Department's safety regulations and requirements.
For commercial yachts, the driver must possess a current Hong Kong Commercial Vessel Driving License (CVDL) or a current CVDL granted by a recognized foreign nation, and the yacht must adhere to the Marine Department's safety guidelines.
