The Merchant Shipping Directorate would like to inform all those concerned that following consultation with all
stakeholders involved, it has revised the Commercial Yacht Code 2010.

The revised Code will serve the needs of the larger yacht industry better and aims to optimise the regulatory regime to the particular needs, demands and technologies of this market, in conformity with recent safety and international regulations and standards.

The new revised Commercial Yacht Code 2015 will take effect as from 1 October 2015 and can be dowloaded by clicking here.

The Directorate will give consideration to proposals to phase-in safety standard requirements for the revised Code, which apply to existing ships.
