Operating a Yacht involves more than just commanding it; a Yacht Master bears a multitude of responsibilities. As an accomplished leader, the captain must exhibit exceptional communication skills when interacting with the crew, the proprietor, and various regulatory bodies.
Within the realm of Yacht Captains, the role encompasses execution of voyages aligned with the expectations of owners or charters, orchestration of vessel upkeep, financial oversight, and unwavering commitment to upholding safety protocols in adherence to global maritime standards.
Moreover, candidates should substantiate their eligibility through a wealth of maritime experience and a profound nautical acumen, substantiated by documented evidence of practical sea service meticulously logged within their personal logbook.
A candidate holding a Yacht Master Offshore Restricted certificate is required to operate a yacht with a maximum length of 35 meters. The sailing activities can take place either during the day or at night, but the yacht must not venture more than 60 nautical miles away from the shore during its voyage.
