Yes you need a licence from 30HP. First you have to apply at MCAST Maritime Kalkara to attend a weeks course and exam to get maritime licence. It's 30 Euros yearly for S registered.

Actually does not do any difference if it is MFA,B or C once the outboard engine is over 30 you need a boat handling course which will qualify you for a boat driving license. As far as I know when it comes to inboards it is rated on engine power in KW. You will find all information on the Malta Transport site. There are roamers that soon will be obligatory for 9.9s and over.

If you register MFC the licence will only be around 23 Euros (Lm10) a year. But you have to pay an initial fee to Malta Transport of about 465 Euros (Lm200) if I'm not mistaken, and pay the same fee again when you sell the boat to someone else.

That is what I had to pay 2 years ago for my MFC boat on the transfer. But apparently there has been a change in fees unless I am wrongly interpreting the table attached below http://www.transport.gov.mt/admin/uploads/media-library/files/fees%20as%20from%2011%20May%202012.pdf

I fully agree with TaKinu. Apart from interesting it is very informative and makes you more concious of safety first when out at sea. Go for the course Byger. It's really well worth it.
