  • Flag deletion / Flag deregistration:
    If you buy a motorboat which is not registered in France (or under the French Flag), as a European boater, Amber Yachting will handle the flag deregistration to subsequently make the necessary steps for registration in your country of residence.
  • The maritime mortgage:
