What licence would I need above day skipper would I need to take paying customers on my 44 foot boat.i know it needs to be coded.it would be UK south coast only. Many thanks
To clarify a bit more ,plan to go along the coast not inland and more than 3 miles out i.e around isle of wight
mark: If you get a Yachtmaster Coastal certificate, you can still get that endorsed for vessels up to 200 gross tonnes.
There are some endorsements available for Day Skipper – see this page http://www.rya.org.uk/coursestraining/pr…
Not sure who issues Boatmans Licences these days – used to be the DTI – quite possibly the same body that is certifying the boat (YBDSA,RYA and I believe theMCAare getting in on the act) They were always for small areas and were related to the area that the boat was allowed to operate in.(6 miles from safe haven -40 miles from safe haven etc.) and were based on local knowledge and safe operating proceedures.
