New and existing owners of Recreational Barges have to be aware of the different licensing regulations across the EEC.
All inland waterways vessels longer than 20m now need to have a fully licensed skipper whilst in continental waterways.
We are able to provide a fully licenced and experienced skipper for almost any waterway in Europe. This can be purely to assist the owner on a new or particularly difficult waterway or indeed to act as skipper while you have the opportunity to learn to handle your new vessel. Our experience extends to advice on regulations, paperwork and the mechanical vagaries of motor barges.
