The complexities of the MCA Code of Practice and MLC can be daunting for both new and experienced yacht owners. With an in-depth understanding of what is required for your yacht and crew to be fully compliant, we can assist every step of the way”
For yachts registered under the UK red flag states, including both commercial yachts and private yachts intending to occasionally charter, conformity with the MCA Code of Practice is mandatory. The MCA standard isn’t just relevant to red flag states, it is also useful to yachts under other flags. As a worldwide benchmark, an MCA certificate is often accepted in place of local rules and is a sensible standard for safety conscious owners of private yachts to adhere to. Coded yachts operating outside the UK and employing crew to work onboard must now also be MLC compliant. The Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) became mandatory for UK flagged commercial vessels, on international voyages from 2014 and details a strict set of rules for employing crew to ensure their welfare and safety.
Drawing upon years of experience as professional yacht crew, we have the knowledge and expertise to assist with all of your crew requirements. We offer a range of services to find and place suitably qualified crew and have an employment structure that ensures both owners and crew are looked after throughout the duration of the contract. We endeavour to take the stress out of this sometimes overwhelming process and can offer advice and assistance every step of the way.
Safety Management Systems are a legal requirement on larger yachts but even the smallest commercial yachts need to be operated safely for the sake of their owners, guests and crew, this includes requirements for safety to be managed systematically based on clear policies and practical procedures.
