There ain't no "legalities", not yet anyway but from my own experience it's good to do a basic course so that you don't get mowed down by a million ton oil tanker or get lost in the fog. RNLI do one for a reasonable price.
Also do not make the mistake of getting a bigger boat than you need: My neighbour had a perfectly good 16 ft open boat then decided to buy something bigger. The 16ft job goes out regularly because it's easy to launch, etc and the big one stays on the drive except for about three or four trips a year LOL.

Have a look at the Seahog range of boats, they have a good safety record and are double skinned with built in bouyancy.
