Question:
What is the difference between on board yacht service and sea service?
Answer:

The MCA works with the following definitions:

  • Onboard Yacht Service is time spent on yachts irrespective of the vessel activity
  • Actual Sea Service is time spent at sea which may include time at anchor or river and canal transits associated with the passage
  • Stand-by Service is time moored whilst fully victualled, fuelled and stored ready to proceed safely to sea eg, awaiting the owner to arrive or a charter to commence
  • Yard Service is time when standing by a build, refit or repair
  • Sea Service includes a combination of Actual Sea Service, Standby Service and or Yard Service.
