IRC Fees

Except for boats qualifiying for the US-IRC Discount, the table below lists the processing fees for applications and certificate copies processed to US Sailing. Measurer fees and boat yard costs associated with the actual measurement of a boat for a certificate are separate from these. Measurers and/or boat yards will invoice the owner separately for their costs.

All fees are based on a boat’s rated METRIC Hull Length (LH).
