Commercial Yacht Code 2015

The Maltese Merchant Shipping Directorate has launched the third edition of the Commercial Yacht Code, which came into effect on the 1 October 2015.

The Maltese Commercial Yacht Code is a comprehensive code which regulates the registration of all commercial yachts having a minimum length of 15 metres, which yachts do not carry more than 12 passengers and are not involved in the carriage of goods by sea.

Since the inception of the 2006 Commercial Yacht Code, a number of commercial yachts have been successfully registered under the Maltese flag.  

The revised Code inter alia aims to optimise the regulatory regime to the particular needs, demands and technologies of the yachting market, in conformity with recent safety and international regulations and standards.
