A new study shows that 73 percent of yachts and boats docked at Busan Suyeong Yachting Center are unregistered because of a loophole in the law.
According to Busan City and Haeundae-gu, 301 yachts and boats among the 425 decked at the harbor, were not registered as a power water leisure craft.
According to the revised water leisure safety act of December 2011, yachts and boats under 20 tons should be registered as a water leisure craft in the local government where the watercrafts owners live.
However, there is no penalty for not registering the boats. With this, Busan is constructing a plan to revise rules to prevent unregistered yachts and boats from decking in Suyeong Yachting Center.
