Small Commercial Yacht Code

In acknowledging the importance of this segment and in order to further spur this segment’s growth, the Merchant Shipping Directorate has designed a Code dedicated to Small Commercial Yachts < 24m Length.

The Small Commercial Yacht Code (sCYC) will better serve the needs of the yachting industry as it aims to optimise the regulatory regime to the particular needs, demands and technologies of this market, in conformity with safety and international regulations and standards.

sCYC Certified Yachts operating commercially in territorial waters of another country shall also comply with any additional requirements as required by that particular country/port state.

The sCYC is applicable to all commercial yachts < 24m Length and is effective as from the 1st April 2024.
