Registration scheme

There is a registration scheme on Anglesey for PWCs (jet skis) and all powered craft.

The registration will require all powered craft launched in Anglesey to have valid insurance and to be registered.


Powerboat and personal watercraft users are to acquaint themselves with the local bye-laws in relation to the conduct of pleasure vessels on the Anglesey coastline.

We would particularly draw your attention to the speed limit of 8 knots applicable at all 26 areas, covered by our seashore and seaside pleasure boats bye-laws, a copy of which is available for inspection with the relevant launching attendant.

In addition, ski boats are reminded that they must have an observer in the boat, in addition to the driver, at all times when a skier is in the water.

Contravention of Isle of Anglesey County Council’s bye-laws relating to seaside pleasure boats may result in the prosecution of offenders and for withdrawal of permission to use council owned launching facilities.
