Boats, Vessels and Watercraft

Being charged with offences committed whilst operating a vessel can be a distressing experience. For many people it will be the first time they experience the criminal justice system and they have no understanding of the court process. Further, some people underestimate the seriousness with which these matters are regarded by the court. This section of the site contains articles about all different types of boating offences.

It has been designed to inform people charged with a PCA (Prescribed Concentration of Alcohol), DUI (Driving under the influence of alcohol), dangerous navigation, boating licence offences and penalties that are likely to be imposed by the court.
