MARINE VESSELS FUEL [INCLUDING COMMERCIAL, FISHING AND LEISURE CRAFT]
Following changes in legislation effective 1st April 2022 regarding the supply of red diesel, all marine vessels can continue to use rebated diesel (red diesel) in their vessels so there will be no change made to EHT’s supply of fuel to marine vessels.
However, non-road mobile machinery, such as forklifts or cranes using red diesel currently will have to switch to white diesel.
Please note EHT will only be able to provide fuel directly onto marine vessels with effect from 1st April 2022. They can no longer supply fuel into jerry cans, or other containers, for onward transport by road.
Included below is a link for further details on the changes found on the Government website, which we trust you’ll find helpful.

Sailing, boating and marine transport
You can use rebated fuel in all types of boat, except for private pleasure craft in Northern Ireland. This includes in their engines and in other machines and appliances permanently on the boat. Since 1 October 2021, you cannot put rebated fuel into the fuel supply of the engine of a private pleasure craft in Northern Ireland.
If you buy rebated fuel for private pleasure craft in Great Britain, you will be required to pay the additional duty on the proportion of the fuel you will use to propel the craft.
