    Default Upgrading ICC upto 10m to ICC over 10m........economically?

    I have been running 20-31ft boats for over 30 years using some of them in Europe under the power boat level 2 obtained ICC.
    But we are now looking at keeping a boat in the med, probably France and the likely contenders are in the 10 to 11m range.
    A quick look on the internet turns up boat schools offerring courses or assesments in the £500 to £1000 range which seems alot just to be able to drive a boat 3 or 4 ft longer than I am used to.
    Any ideas on a more economical way of doing this?

    I think you can do just the assesment on its own (ie without the course) if you already have the experience etc, these guys below seem to be saying that the assessment on its own is around £200

    Cut out the middle person and brexit proof it and further enjoy a nice week scoping a prospective cruising area .
    Go straight to French Permit De Mer .

    I would recommend it .

    Interesting, my ICC (originally issued mid 90's) does not say anything about boat lengths just Coastal Waters sail and power craft?

    You can do a direct assessment for the ICC with a RYA school. The icc sail does not have a size restriction but the power does. Www.portsmouthmarinetraining.co.uk can do it as 1 day of own boat tuition for £250, or on there school boats for a bit more.

    The old icc did not distinguish between <10m and >10m. I also have one of these old icc's

    I thought it was 10 years, but yes they do, but all you have to do is pay a nominal fee (something like £25) to renew it, and you just get back the same 'type' of ICC, but with a new expiry date.
