How does the sale of a boat with the Polish flag take place?

Any contract for the sale of a Polish-flagged boat will be managed by the seller wherever he wants.
The fact that the boat is registered in Poland does not affect the sale of the boat. It can be notarized or it can be a private agreement between the seller and the buyer. The Polish government is not involved. Once the boat has been registered and if it is sold, we can change ownership if the buyer wishes to keep it, or we can deregister it if the buyer wishes to register it on another flag state.
Note that the Polish flag registration is NOMINAL and that in case of sale of a Polish flagged boat, if the new owner wants to stay with this flag he will have to request the activation of a new license in his name.
