Are you looking to upgrade your outboard or inboard engine and need a re-rating statement for insurance? Do you need changes made to your Builder’s Plate? If you have built, modified or imported a boat then you may need our help to secure an Australian Builder’s Plate (ABP). It’s easy to fill in the form and upload your photos so we can provide a re-rating statement and a new quality photo anodised aluminium plate’ to certify your vessel as compliant.
The following information and requested photographs are required to determine changes to carrying capacity and/or maximum power ratings for vessels up to 15 metres. The requirement to fit Australian Builder’s Plates (ABP) came into force in September 2006 and if your boat was built, modified or imported after September 2006 then you are required to have a compliant ABP fitted.
If your boat was built prior to September 2006 you may have already have an ABP, Builder’s plaque or label containing some or all of the following; maximum passenger load, maximum power rating and flotation standard. If you modify the boat and information changes then you also need to have a new ABP fitted.
