Boating license

Hello, not sure if this is the right section for this question, but looking for some feedback on getting a boating license in Zug. We are looking to buy a boat (18-20 ft or 5-6 m). Have a place to store it in Zug and launch at Zug marina but also may have an opportunity for a dock slip. Can I only do the boat license in German? My French is better than my German, can I do it in French? Can I go do it in Geneva and transfer here to Zug? Any feedback would be helpful.

Re: Boating license

Sail or Motorboat?

At 18 foot if it's a sail boat there is a good chance you don't need a license. Under 15m sail area you can sail without a license, but the boat will still need to be registered and have a designated place to store it.

You can apply at the Strassenverkehrsamt to do the license on another lake if you wish so it should be possible to do it in a French speaking region but you have to apply to be allowed to do it.

If it's a motor boat same thing if the engine is less than 8HP.

Here is some more info
