How do I find out who owns a boat when I've been hit by it.

Here's the post I replied on your other thread of the same name.

Hi John,

Welcome to the Forum.

As far as I know you cannot find who owns a private boat. This being a data protection issue.

However if say you've seen a boat you like and wish to buy or had a boat do damage etc. You could write a letter and send it to the Broads Authority to forward on to the owners.

Can you say why you want this information, may help with other ideas on suggestion to help you.

You might want to look at Graigs website, listed in the links at the bottom of every page, it gives information on the boats but not personal data.

John.

In the event of a collision between boats, skippers are obliged to exchange name and address, just as in a collision between cars on the road.  There is a.so a duty, under the navigation byelaws to notify the BA of such an incident.  If you inform the BA you have been hit, and give them the details of the other vessel, they will investigate and possibly prosecute a 'hit and run' skipper.

If you have a name and reg number and have suffered damage then place it in the hands of your insurers. They will trace the owner and their insurers. Why suffer the anquish, that is what we all pay our premiums for.

PS. An independent witness would be helpful.

If it's a hire boat they only have to give boat name and reg number no personal details as I found out last year.

In a nutshell

With cars, if no-one is hurt and the drivers either exchange insurer details or agree to cover costs of any damage if too small to warrant claiming, there is no need to report an accident. What are the rules for boat collisions on the broads?

Personal details MUST be given, whether the boat is hired or private.

"Navigation Bye Law 69

(1) On the occurrence of any incident resulting in personal injury or serious damage to property or to any other vessel, the master of each vessel involved therein shall:

(a) stop the vessel as soon as practicable; and

(b) inform in writing the Navigation Officer or other Officer of the Authority and any other person having good reason to request it of his full name and address, the name and address of the owner of the vessel and its registration details.

(2) On the occurrence of any incident resulting in damage to property or to any other vessel not being an incident described in paragraph (1) the master of each vessel involved therein shall:

(a) Stop the vessel as soon as practicable; and

(b) Inform in writing any person having good reason to request it of his full name, address and the name and address of the owner of the vessel and its registration details; and

(c) Promptly take all reasonable steps to ascertain the identity of the owner of any property or other vessel involved therein and inform in writing such person or persons of his full name and address, the name and address of the owner of the vessel and its registration details."




"..for the avoidance of any doubt, the broads are not legally a national park and do not come under the national park legislation, and nor will they."
Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for DEFRA (Hansard 2015)

The only legal requirement for cars is to exchange Reg No's, name and address of driver and name and address of reg keeper (if different) - Insurance details only need to be exchanged if someone is injured - not sure what the requirement for boats is tho

Happy Cruising
