- Type I: Inflatable boats propelled exclusively by manual means;

- Type II: Inflatable boats capable of taking a maximum motor power of 4,5 kW;

- Type III: Inflatable canoes and kayaks (see normative annex A);

- Type IV: Inflatable craft propelled by sail with a maximum sail area of 6 m2 (see normative annex B).

NOTE 1 General arrangements of typical boats of Types I, II and III are given in annexes C, D and E, respectively.

NOTE 2 For boats with power ratings of 4,5 kW and greater, refer to ISO 6185-2 and ISO 6185-3.
