Commercial Yachts Extended Range Tender Guidelines


The Merchant Shipping Directorate has recently issued the ‘Commercial Yachts Extended Range Tender Guidelines’ (the ‘Guidelines’) which will be applicable to all extended range tenders designated as appurtenances of Maltese flagged commercial yachts which are equal to or less than 24m in length of hull from the 1st of June 2022.


These Guidelines are to be read and applied in conjunction with the relevant provisions of the Malta Commercial Yacht Code and have been published to better regulate extended range tenders which operate within a twenty nautical mile radius from the mother yacht.
