Inspections of pleasure boats in Spain can be carried out by collaborating entities of inspection, and these entities must have the previous authorization by the administration. This authorization allows these entities performing effective inspections and technical controls of pleasure craft. Recreational crafts are subjected to surveys that are based on the registration list and hull construction material. In addition the required safety equipment of the recreational boat depends on the distance that the recreational boat is authorized to navigate. The aim of this paper is to analyze and compare the types of survey / inspections to be carried pleasure craft (non-commercial use), periodicity and required safety equipment in some member states of the European Union. A case study of Spain is presented. From the results obtained, we can determine if there is a lack of coordination in this area and, if required, indicate the need to unify a common pattern in inspections and surveys of recreational boats in the EU.
