Licence Summary
Under the Public Health Acts 1907 and Recreational Craft Regulations 1996, pleasure boats or vessels that are used on inland waterways or sea going vessels which are either let out to members of the public for hire or are used for the carriage of passengers for hire must obtain a licence to do so.
