The nautical sector in Spain has been growing for several years, especially the pleasure boat sector (+9.73% in rentals). Marinas have reached a turnover of 166 M€ in 2019. The demand for moorings continues to grow, as well as other related activities, such as the sale of pleasure boats. With 292 marinas and 131,100 moorings concentrated in Andalusia, the Balearic Islands and Catalonia, the nautical recreational sector generates 12 billion euros and is constantly evolving. 

Whether for recreational craft, large vessels or offshore platforms, the risks of navigation depend to a large extent on the condition of the vessels. To ensure safety, Eurocontrol carries out increasingly precise controls, with services ranging from the inspection or CE marking of recreational craft to non-destructive testing of vessels.

We help you to ensure

the safety of boats 

Owners of a recreational craft or companies or individuals involved in the construction and repair or rental and sale of boats, the sale of equipment or accessories, design and studies or the provision of services in the marine sector, must comply with the regulations that require the periodic control of all the elements related to boats. The standardisation of recreational craft, through the CE marking, ensures their robustness to respond to potential risks and allows them to be marketed within the European Union.

In the field of large vessels or offshore platforms, regular checks by marine surveyors, such as thickness measurements and other non-destructive tests, are essential to ensure the safety of installations.
