MCA Consultation on Changes to Regulations for Pleasure Vessels
The MCA is seeking feedback from the public and small craft industry on some recent clarifications which will address a gap in the regulatory framework for temporary commercial use either for Business Purposes or as a Race Support Boat.
This consultation closes at 11:59pm on 26th September 2018.
The MCA has worked closely with British Marine, RYA, and the Yacht Brokers, Designers and Surveyors Association (YBDSA) to develop a new Code to allow for Pleasure Vessels to be in temporary commercial use at sea for specific purposes (explained below). This is a very positive step to provide a framework for what we know is wanted by the Pleasure Vessel sector.
