    Hi,

    If a motorboat fulfill the ISO 12217-1 norm, than does it still have to fulfill the regulations of institution that certificate the boat? Lets say GL, or ABS? How do You think?

    vv3k4i,

    It is entirely up to you. What is your intended use of the vessel. If it is going commercial, it will have to satisfy some class society to be allowed to trade )or carry passengers), if it is simply for personal use, then it is a whole different ball game. Lengths over 24metres also affect the requirements.

    I design boat for myself, for charter, but I want the boat to be in accordance with directive 94/25/EN and 2003/44/EN.So that means, that if the boat is to be design and build acc to those directives, than it have to fulfill both ISO and lets say GL rules? What if only ISO rules are fulfilled, and GL not?

    No there are problems, GL is a class society, private organisation.
    EN standards require boats to be built to the CE requirements, ISO is a standard that is being used, GL or any other "class" society are irrelevant unless you are going commercial, and insurances would become applicable.

    You say you are going to charter, therefore you are commercial, and you will have to then get a BV or GL or some other society to build to.

    Depens what the national laws say about it, so you got to check how it's stated (in Poland I presume). In Finland there's no need for class society certification for a charter boat under 24m

    Nor in Spain. If under 24 m, only CE marking is mandatory.
    And even over 24 it's not mandatory either to Class a charter vessel around here. Although it will help with insurance.
    Cheers.
