C.E. Certification

Yacht CE CertificationAll yachts imported into a European Union member nation must possess a valid C.E. Certification. Many times a yacht has been built with a C.E. stamp, however, several older models, and American-built boats will not have one. Yachts without a C.E. certificate must be inspected and pass certain safety requirements before a stamp can be issued.

For clients yachting in Europe your Denison yacht broker will assist in securing a current C.E. marking for your next yacht. We’ll make sure the process is affordable, timely and easy for you.
