If you would like to take passengers out on a pleasure boat or vessel, or hire the boat or vessel out to members of the public you will need a licence.
Licences are issued by both the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and the Local Licensing Authority.
To apply to the council for a licence you will need to nominate a set departure point and the vessel or boat will need to be navigated by a licenced boatman.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is not currently authorised to issue pleasure boats or boatmen licence. You will need to contact the: Maritime and Coastguard Agency (external pdf).
