How do I get my Small Powerboat & RIB Master certificate commercially endorsed?

The IYT “Master of Yachts” and the IYT “Small Powerboat & RIB Master” certificates do not
require a “commercial endorsement” because they are commercial certificates. The MCA has recognised three levels of IYT Master of Yachts Certificates and the Small Powerboat and RIB Master Certificate as being “Commercial” in their own right.

They are:

  • Master of Yachts Coastal/Mate 200 gross tons and Master for vessels < 24 m
  • Master of Yachts Limited <200 gross tons
  • Master of Yachts Unlimited <200 gross tons
  • Small Powerboat and RIB Master

The “Yachtmaster” certificates issued by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) are recreational certificates and these certificates do require a “commercial endorsement” if one wishes to work commercially. Should you wish to confirm this information please contact the Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) Seafarers Standard Branch +44 (0)23 8032 9100 – Deck Department.

Prerequisites

Candidates should be 17 years of age or older. Candidates should hold an ENG1 Seafarers Medical or equivalent. Candidates should hold STCW Basic Safety Training. Candidates should hold VHF Radio Short Range Certificate.
