Registration and flag in Sint Maarten

Hello
Does Sint Maarten require a pleasure boat to be registered with them and fly their flag? What if a boat doesn't have the registration tags or name posted on the side and back of the boat?
How would I find the registered owner of the boat?
Thanks

Re: Registration and flag in Sint Maarten

The rules for registering in Sint Maarten are here.
The rules for registering on French St. Martin are the same as those for France.

Are you looking to re-register from another country's flag to Sint Maarten or looking for the registered owner of a boat flagged there?

Looking for the registered owner of a boat in Sint Maarten. He does not have the name of the boat on the boat itself, no registration tags, or flags. Is that required?
Thank you!

Re: Registration and flag in Sint Maarten

There are no registrations tags in Sint Maarten, but I would think that the boat name and flag country should be displayed. You can get the definitive information from a broker (there are many, I can't recommend a specific one that I've used, so you can search using Google) on the Dutch side or contact the registration authority directly at

Re: Registration and flag in Sint Maarten

This kind of work is my specialty, but you do not provide enough info for me to be of any help.

What flag does she fly now? (USCG Documented, US State Registered, or some other type of foreign of flagging and/or registry.)

Where and when was she built?

Physical dimensions, weight, other specs, etc.?

I did a deflag from French to a reflagg US for a boat located in Raiatea, French Polynesia that was owned by a company in French, St. Martan. About $400 to $500 as I recall. The only screw up was the French, St. Martan owner did not have a signed copy of the Builders Certificate from Robertson & Cain so that delayed it a couple of weeks. I'm sure the Dutch side would be similar, after all they are civilized people as well, and they allow gambling.
