To register a boat on the Erne, contact the Warden at Portora Ph: +44(0)28 6632 2836 There is no charge for registration, but once your vessel has been assigned a registration number, you must display the registration sticker visibly on your craft. The inspector/warden will issue you with an application, which you must complete and return to him. He will then issue you with the registration number for your boat. You can also download the application forms from the Waterways Ireland website.
Note: if you have purchased a craft that has already been registered, be sure to contact the Inspector to update his records with your new owner information
