What does the Master of Yachts 200 Tons Limited course consist of?
A 7 day classroom course to reinforce and examine knowledge of:
- Collision Regulations
- Navigation and chart work
- Tides and tidal streams
- Business and Law.
Followed by a 6 day Andaman Sea voyage in our training motor yacht to refine and test command skills.
The IYT Master Of Yachts 200 Tons Limited Certificate of Competency allows the holder to be in charge of a yacht up to 200 gross tons within 150 nautical miles of safe haven and/or to legally stand a watch on a yacht up to 500gt. It is also one of the requirements for entry to the MCA Officer of the Watch (Yachts) program and is the first step on the professional yachting promotion ladder.
The course is not for beginners.
Instruction will be intensive. Candidates should feel that they are ready for command and have the necessary qualities such as situational awareness, sense of responsibility, leadership ability and basic boat handling skills. The practical instruction is intended to formalise and give structure to candidates’ ability to command, not to teach from scratch. A person who has never maneuvered a powerboat in close-quarters cannot reasonably expect to pass.
The final day of the practical course is given over to a practical examination by an IYT Examiner who will assess candidates’ practical ability, their underpinning knowledge and their command ability by means of an extensive oral and practical test on a yacht. Candidates can expect to be examined on any subject covered by the syllabus of the theory or practical courses and to be questioned on any aspect of their yachting experience to date.
Please note the following entry requirements:
- 18 years of age or over
- The Candidate should have adequate practical experience AT THE HELM of either a sail boat or twin screw power vessel.
The requirements are:
–> 3000 nautical miles – This mileage must be logged on genuine cruises or passages and not short day trips. At least 2 000 miles must have been completed on coastal voyages and not ocean
crossings. It is important that the candidate has spent time in a position of responsibility, at least as watch leader, and has considerable experience of actual boat handling.
–> 50 days on board at sea (a day = 24 hours)
–> 30 hours on watch at night underway as an active member of a yacht’s crew. For at least six hours of this night time experience the candidate must have been acting as the vessel’s captain/watch-leader.
–> Verification of this experience should be original and signed by the skipper of the vessel. Candidates claiming sea time during which they were acting as skipper may sign their own entries but independent confirmation is required.
–> It is assumed that during this qualifying mileage the candidate will have gained a working knowledge of the Collision Regulation and the basics of paper chart work for coastal navigation.
- A physical/medical which must include eyesight and colour blindness check
- VHF or Radio Operator Certificate
Valid MCA Approved STCW 2010 Basic training certificates are also required before a MoY Certificate of Competency can be issued. Candidates not holding valid STCW Basic certificates can update or take the full course, within or adjacent to the MoY courses (additional fees apply).
Candidates not holding a VHF SRC certificate can study this course online prior to attendance and be examined during the MoY courses (additional fees apply).
