United Yacht Transport Discusses Lawful Threat to Superyachts

Categories:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 17, 2015 — As the size of yachts seems to be multiplying as each new superyacht makes its debut, existing laws are creating a problem for these massive vessels due to their colossal length. United Yacht Transport, the North American leader in boat transport, reflects on the current situation, and what it could mean for owners, captains, and the community of Fort Lauderdale.

The law currently states that once yachts exceed a certain length, both owners and captains need to acquire a different type of license to possess and operate them. International rule states that if a superyacht surpasses 3,000 gross tons, it is no longer identified as a pleasure boat and is considered a commercial vessel.

A major problem is that captains would have to essentially start their careers from the bottom and put in enough hours to receive a separate license. The Maritime Professional Training School has set up a course in an effort to alleviate this problem. The course seems to be worth the time and money, as it adds you to the comparably shorter list of candidates when yacht owners are seeking captains for their superyachts.

Not only does this law affect owners and captains, but also the community of Fort Lauderdale. This Florida city has been deemed the “yachting capital of the world,” since there is so much transport and tourism in that area.
