LIST OF PERSONS
REGISTRATION OF PERSONS ABOARD A VESSEL
When obtaining the official vignette (sticker) the skipper of a vessel who intends to change crews during sailing in the Republic of Croatia is also obliged to provide a list of persons
who will be staying aboard the vessel during the validity of the official vignette (sticker), with the total number of persons listed not exceeding a double capacity of the unit capacity of the vessel increased by 30 %. (Actually works out quite generously to about 18 or 20 persons/year for a 10 meter boat)
The list of persons does not include those who are staying aboard the vessel when it is in port or at anchor (i.e. Visitors onboard in port or at anchor, who do not actually sail with the boat, need not be added to the list)
. The list of persons can be provided in full when obtaining the official vignette (sticker), but it can also be provided successively, at the latest during the first embarkation of the individual persons included in the list. If the list of persons is being filled successively, it must be verified in the Harbour Master's Office, or branch office, as such persons are entered in the list. The number of changes related to persons provided in the list is not restricted.
If the skipper of a vessel does not intend to change crew during his stay in Croatian waters and during the validity of the official vignette (sticker) he has no obligation to report to the Harbour Master's Office, or branch office.
Note: The list of persons does not include persons that embarked outside of Croatia (i.e. the original crew).
Children under 12 can be excluded from the list of persons.
