STAGING Changes to EA Boat Registration Fees - British Rowing

Changes to EA Boat Registration Fees

The Environment Agency have announced a 6.4% increase in boat registration fees for all types of boats using their waterways from 1st April 2012.  The increase also applies to the British Rowing / Environment Agency block booking agreement.

The fees for 2012 are as follows –


Unpowered Craft

EA based clubs:

  • Adult boats £20.50 each
  • Junior boats £6.00 each

Non EA based clubs

  • Adult boats £12.00 each
  • Junior boats £5.00 each
Powered Craft

The concession offered in 2011 for powered craft of a nil charge has been withdrawn as this has resulted in substantial loss of revenue to the EA.  However, they are offering a special block booking rate for British Rowing registered launches at less than half the standard charge, currently between £78 and £150. As before powered craft must have insurance in place as required by the EA.

  • Powered craft £35.00 each

Non-EA based clubs may prefer to purchase temporary registrations direct from the Environment Agency. For more information please see the Environment Agency website:

Clubs are now able to renew or apply for new EA Boat Registrations for the 1st April 2012 – 31st March 2013 registration period through Club Management. For more information on how to make your clubs application and full details of the scheme please see:
