Can a boat be CE certified if built for US waters and shipped to another country?

Cobalt Boats can only CE certify boats when they are ordered and built with those requirements. Once the boat leaves our facility, it is up to the owner to contact the country authorities for their ruling on boats coming into their country that are not CE certified. If the boat can be certified, it is the owner’s responsibility to meet the country’s requirements.
