Large Yacht

UKSR Watermark

Large Yacht

A merchant vessel is a commercial vessel that is operating to make a profit and can range from a Large Yacht that is used for chartering, workboats, tugs to large cargo ships and passenger vessels.

Each vessel type under 24m load line length will require a coding certificate that proves the vessel is fit to operate commercially. An inland waterways certificate or Port of London Authority license will also be accepted in place of a coding certificate.

The only exception is a large yacht over 24m loadline length which will require Ensign large yacht certificate.
