About Us

Based in the Netherlands, Lorrendraaier is a highly specialised bureau solely focused on the management and registration of Pleasure Crafts and Commercial Cruising Vessels in the European Union. For example, boats used by leisure marine professionals for charter or training purposes.


Our cliental vary from maritime professional to commercial entities such as charter companies, yacht dealerships, yacht brokers, architects, shipyards, etc.


As ship managers we do not claim to be the biggest in Europe, as we have no idea how many boats our colleagues manage and register for their clients. We are however confident that services we offer to yacht owners and the leisure marine professionals is one of a very high standard, whether we have to register for one or one thousand boats.

How Lorrendraaier works

In principle we only work with maritime professionals, professionals such as maritime service companies, ship managers, charter companies, yacht dealerships, yacht brokers, architects, shipyards, etc.


Private boat owner we encourage to register their ship through one of our partners. Why? Well it is very simple : our partners are professionals whom are far better informed on local laws and regulations, than we are. They will be able to give you a sound advice.


On top of that in most cases they will also be able to deregister your boat for you, before it is registered in the Dutch registrar. Of essential importance because penalties can be very high when your boat is registered in two registrars at the same time.

ISO 9001

Lorrendraaier is one of the very few, if not only, specialised firm in Europe that is ISO 9001:2015 certified.


Lorrendraaier has all the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) standards in place and therefore meets the privacy laws and regulations of the EU.
