In brief: Never

Safe boating depends entirely on your ability to handle the boat mentally and physically.
I know a man who still circumnavigates his trimaran at 80 years old. There is no age limit.

In brief: Same as a car

If the physical capacity limits the ability to maneuver the boat or the vision/hearing limit the ability to see and hear hazards, then that person is too old to conduct a boat.
