Communication in shipping is of vital importance. A VHF radio is therefore mandatory on large ships and commercial shipping. Many countries do not have this obligation for small vessels. Nevertheless, we advise every boat owner not to rely on a mobile phone but to opt for maritime radio equipment.
Maritime transmission equipment does not always seem necessary on pleasure cruises. A mobile phone works too, does it not? But a registered marine telephone has important advantages. The Coast Guard can immediately recognise from which ship the call is coming from and can therefore send help more immediately. And direct communication with nearby skippers increases safety on the water. Also for small vessels that do not require a VHF radio.
Lorrendraaier can arrange the registration of a ship station licence for you. We will advise on the required documents and certificates and ensure an efficient and careful submission of application. If necessary, we can also supervise the registration with a flag state.
