Installation and Use of Maritime Radio Equipment
When you are sailing under your “home flag” in Spanish waters, the installation and use of maritime radio equipment is covered by the laws and regulations of you home country. You only need to have the appropriate documents ready to show to Spanish authorities if requested. However, when sailing a Spanish registered boat in Spanish waters you have to respect and follow the Spanish laws and regulations concerning installation and use of maritime radio equipment. The following requirements apply exclusively to pleasure boats for private use, without professional crew.
