Global launch of the Nautical ID plate

Currently it is almost impossible to independently identify the owner of a boat. In the event of actual or impending damage, an absentee boat owner would be, and would remain, wholly unaware. The Nautical ID Plate directly addresses this by immediately linking a boat with its owner. A boat owner is now able to take immediate action to safeguard the boat.

Nautical ID is the link between boat and owner.

We know that many boat owners may feel anxious when leaving their boat in a harbour or moored. So we have created a solution. Boat owners can now feel protected when leaving the boat after a day on the water. Order your own bridge or hull plate today and be in touch with yourself!

As part of your membership, we will provide you with an all weather NID Plate. These can be positioned where you choose but are best placed at bow and stern. You can choose from several designs and we also provide a flag to signal you are a member of the Nautical ID fleet.


Currently contacting absent boat owners is difficult if not impossible. Nautical ID provides a fast and effective way to contact the boat owner in the event of emergency. By scanning the boats unique QR code, fellow boat owners or passersby who see any problem can now immediately inform you, helping you to take action. The QR code can be scanned by any smartphone owner giving you an instant SMS message.


Our site allows you to select only the personal and boat information you wish to display. This may include your name, telephone number and email address but importantly, with the NID SMS function the owner can remain anonymous but still be contactable.


Mark up your boat or dock this summer so you can be easily contacted. Open up your camera on your smartphone and scan the QR code on the NID Plate below to see how it works.

Feel free to watch a movie about how NID can help you as a boat owner. You don't need a special app, just scan the code with your camera on your phone. On your info page you can provide only the information you want to make available to others. If you choose not to share your mobile number or e-mail, you can still be contacted via our smart SMS function!

The product kit includes two NID plates that are custom built to suit the boats location and includes the SMS feature that allows you to remain anonymous but still contactable, all this and a one year membership with Nautical ID Price £99
