My reading is that residency is only required to (initially) register. Once registered no requirement to maintain residency. But I could be wrong

Re: Kuwait Registered Boat: Circumnavigation

So, basically - it shouldn't be a problem sailing around the world with a Kuwait registered yacht, although neither of us are Kuwaiti?

I'd expect to encounter numerous "problems" on a circumnavigation - all of them surmountable, and none due to registration/nationality.

We cruised with (10 year old) Micronesian boat papers for much of the 80s with no problems. Most non-EU officials don't care where the boat is registered if you're not going to leave the boat in their waters for too long.
