Boat Registration

All vessels on Environment Agency waterways are required by law to be registered. A vessel includes not only boats such as narrowboats, cruisers and barges, but also unpowered house boats, canoes, kayaks, SUP's and rowing skiffs.

Failure to register your vessel can result in a £1000 fine and/or removal of the vessel from the waterway.

Visiting craft can purchase a daily, weekly or monthly registration from Allington Lock or  Tonbridge Castle.
