Commercial Endoresments

 

Operators of vessels in a commercial role are required to hold a commercial endorsement. There are different categories requiring different base qualifications. We have set out the various options below. These are based upon a maximum of 12 passengers and no cargo and operate only in favourable weather and daylight from a nominated departure point.

All certificates must carry the endorsement “valid for vessels of up to 24 metres in length used for commercial purposes”.

Areas of Operation

For vessels that put to sea, within 3 miles from a nominated departure point and never more than 3 miles from land, in favourable weather and daylight.

  • RYA Advanced Powerboat certificate of competence, or
  • RYA Dayskipper practical certificate, or
  • RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate.

For vessels that put to sea, within 20 miles from a nominated departure point in favourable weather and daylight.

  • RYA Advanced Powerboat certificate of competence, or
  • RYA Dayskipper theory and practical certificate.
