Basically you need a surveyor to make sure your boat complies with everything in here..

Then after that complete what needs doing to conform to these requirements and get the surveyor to sign of that the work has been completed to EU standard.
Best cross into Europe and pick a country and boatyard to get this done as it's not valid in the UK anymore.

Must be done by a "notified body".
All the notified bodies for RCD compliance are

Re: CE certification in Europe for boat from UK

Btw, just in case your boat has a chance to get by:

A boat does not need to comply with the RCD if it was/is:

built in the EEA prior to 16 June 1998; or

in use in the EEA prior to 16 June 1998; or*

only visiting the EEA for reasons of tourism or in transit (time scales are undefined); or

an*exemption listed below.

A craft is exempted from the RCD if is one of the following:

watercraft intended solely for racing, including rowing racing boats and training rowing boats labelled as such by the manufacturer; or

canoe and kayak, gondola or pedalo designed to be propelled solely by human power; or

surfboards designed solely to be propelled by wind and to be operated by a person or persons standing; or

surfboards; or

original, and individual replica of a historical craft designed before 1950, built predominantly with the original materials and labelled as such by the manufacturer; or

experimental watercraft, provided it is not subsequently placed on the Community market; or

watercraft built for own use, provided it is not subsequently placed on the Community market during a period of five years; or

watercraft specifically intended to be crewed and to carry passengers for commercial purposes, regardless of the number of passengers; or

submersible; or

air cushion vehicle; or

hydrofoil; or

external combustion steam powered watercraft, fuelled by coal, coke, wood, oil or gas; or

amphibious vehicle, i.e. wheeled or track-laying motor vehicle, which is able to operate both on water and on solid land.

True enough.. if you have imported it it only becomes liable for CE compliance when/if you decide to sell it in the EU.

Re: CE certification in Europe for boat from UK

Needs to be compliant if put on the market or in to service in EU or EES.

Enforcement is are, I've never actually heard of anyone prosecuted for non compliance but I beleive the importer is always responsible even after selling it and it could get expensive if someone dies due to non compliance.

I used this company to have my US-built sailboat CE marked and legal in the EU. I didn't bring her to Europe until 2009. I paid the Dutch the VAT and used DCI for the RCD classification. After dealing with five "defects", my boat was rated RCD catagory "A".

The Swedes and the French both asked for my VAT papers when boarded and the French tried to tell me that I paid too little for my boat. I told them that they should have seen her when I bought her before a 10 year refit...
