Pleasure yachts in commercial use (engaged in trade) shall comply at all times with the 1978 International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, as amended (STCW 78/95). San Marino delegated decree n. 75 of 3 May 2022 establishes minimum standards for a Certificate of Competency (CoC) for Yacht Masters and Navigational Officers employed on coastal navigation, up to 70 nautical miles from a sheltered place. This limited coastal CoC follows the principles of the STCW 78/95 convention and has been notified to the General Secretariat of the IMO, in accordance with the related procedure. Recreational crafts used for commercial purposes, up to 500 GT, used for the transport of up to 12 passengers, may be skippered by Masters holding Certificates of Competence in accordance with the requirements set out in San Marino delegated decree n. 75 of 3 May 2022. The Certificate of Competence as Commercial Yacht Master (in Command and Control of Commercial Yachts up to 500GT) is issued according to the criteria of the International Convention STCW 78/95, as amended, as a Certificate equivalent to the Certificate of Competence for Masters qualified for navigation in coastal voyages in line with the principles of Article IX and Regulation II/3 of the Convention. Such Certificate is issued, on the form provided for within the STCW Convention, by the San Marino Maritime Navigation Authority and is notified to the IMO, pursuant to Article IX, paragraph 2 of the STCW Convention. Requirements for obtaining a Commercial Yacht Master CoC are defined by Art. 4 and 5 of San Marino delegated decree n. 75 of 3 May 2022.
