Yacht Maritime Compliance

As yacht dimensions have expanded, the imperative of implementing rules and regulations for safe operation has become essential for Flag States and Classification societies. Regulations such as MLC 2006, Solas, Marpol, and Large Yacht codes have been formulated to establish national and international standards for construction, operation, and management.

Consequently, this has added a significant workload for yacht operations, onboard personnel, and owners alike.

The complexity of compliance necessitates structured organization and clear understanding to prevent unexpected surprises. MLC Yachting recognizes this need and has developed a fully customizedsystem to provide robust support to our clients.

Drawing on our extensive knowledge and experience in the yachting industry and maritime compliance, MLC Yachting has tailored a fleet management tool.

This tool effectively structures and monitors onboard compliance for both on-board and office personnel.

Technical Inspections & Pre-Purchase Surveys

Drawing on our experience in yacht management and engineering, we offer consultancy services for technical inspections and pre-purchase surveys.

Our approach is straightforward - witness operational testing and evaluate the yacht's status in real conditions.

The documentation used, combined with experience, provides the owner and captain with an updated status of the yacht, a list of defects, and/or recommendations.

This information can be utilized for future refit specifications or simply to confirm the asset's conditions.
