It is not in any way restriction circulation of European citizens. Some goods are restricted.That would be a breach of free circulation of european citizens and they could take it to the ECJ.... You really are clowns... Al
It does not stop free circulation of property anyway, as a yacht can be registered in your country of residence. (At least in the EU as we are talking about EU law). In fact, many countries will happily register it for you without you being resident (e.g. Belgium).
As it happens. Yes. But that is not the point.Bloc Marine concerns french yachts.... do you have on board all of the french requirements regarding security????
The point is that in common with most places in the world, France expects big things to be registered and that you can produce the original registration document. Whether that is a car, bus, truck, boat, plane, sailing dinghy etc...
There are exceptions (already been mentioned here).
In the same way, if I fly to the UK, UK immigration expects me to present a passport. My birth certificate, driver's license, French residence card and even all of them together won't do it.
Can you show me the UK law which requires that?
My boat is for sale here.
Does any RYA member knows the name of the French Lawyer hired by them to look in this matter and PM it to me so that I can contact him? Surely he could drop in here and tell it as it is, in plain words. There is so much rubbish being said on here that his findings would be welcome...
Traditional Boatyards are not the only place you find thick planks...
What's wrong with that? You do not offer me the same courtesy although I HAVE a written response from a higher authority. That's why you are a hypocrite.
I have provided the law. You do not recognize this fact because you do not wish to understand the French legal process which I set out in post #82.
You, of course may find this new knowledge useful should you ever venture abroad in your boat.
