The asymptotic properties of the solutions to the Einstein-Maxwell equations with boost-rotation symmetry and Petrov type D are studied. We find series solutions to the pertinent set of equations which are suitable for late time descriptions in coordinates which are well adapted for the description of the radiative properties of spacetimes (Bondi coordinates). By calculating the total charge, Bondi and Newman-Unti-Tamborino mass and the Newman-Penrose constants of the spacetimes we provide a physical interpretation of the free parameters of the solutions. Additional relevant aspects on the asymptotics and radiative properties of the spacetimes considered, such as the possible polarization states of the gravitational and electromagnetic field, are discussed through the way.
