Do I need any inspections for my commercial yacht with Polish registration?

YES, Any Polish registered commercially operated yacht under 24 meters needs technical inspections

Polish registered commercial yachts are required to be inspected on a 5 year schedule.  These requirements apply to both bareboat charter and crewed operations, and for any length of vessel under 24 meters.

Professional examinations are also required after: Grounding accidents, Hull refits, or installation/replacement of electrical systems.

What exactly is a Commercial Yacht under the Polish flag? The Polish Maritime Law definition is :

...commercial yachts are those that are made available for a fee; tourist cruises are organized on them (transporting people), sailing and motorboat training, setting out for fishing or they are chartered (provided without a crew for payment)...

The recognized organizations that can perform surveys so far authorized by the minister responsible for maritime economy are: Polish Ship Register, Russian Maritime Register of Ships, Lloyd'sRegister, RINA, Bureau Veritas, DNV GL, American Bureau of Shipping.
