IYT Master of Yachts courses have been recognised by the British Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) since 1998 for use on board all Red Ensign registered Yachts up to 200 gross tons. Although the courses were specifically designed for use on Red Ensign Yachts, they are now accepted by many other flag states because of their prestigious MCA recognition. This 6-day theory shore based course consists of advanced navigation and techniques, and therefore it is expected that attendees already have the knowledge of Day Skipper / Navigation Master.

Course topics include:

  • Collision Regulations (IRPCS)
  • Chartwork, Pilotage & Navigation including passage planning
  • Meteorology
  • Tides (Heights & Streams including secondary port calculations)
  • Business & Law
This course must be completed for enrolling for the IYT/MCA Master of Yachts (Limited) practical course. The theory course is a six-day comprehensive high-level shore based course with assessment papers and written examinations. Candidates are advised that a considerable amount of private study and varied cruising experience is required in addition to the formal instruction provided.

Course Pre-requisites

Candidates should be 18 years of age or older. Must hold or obtain a Marine Communications VHF-SRC Radio Operators certificate. Must hold or obtain all STCW’95 certificates. STCW certificates must be valid (not expired). If STCW Safety Training is taken after January 1, 2014 the new Proficiency in Maritime Security Awareness is also required. Candidates must provide documented evidence of experience as stated below:
  • Logged 50 days on board a yacht at sea as an active crew member on watch. For the purpose of this requirement, a day is defined as a period of 24 consecutive hours. The term “at sea” is defined as being on a vessel outside of any harbour – natural or artificial – in which a cruising yacht could secure or anchor for a prolonged period of time.
  • Logged 3,000 miles in a yacht while cruising at sea (power or sail). This must be on genuine cruises or passages, not short day trips. The candidate must have considerable time of actual vessel handling.
  • Thirty hours on watch at night underway as an active member of a yacht’s crew.
  • Sea time must be obtained on a vessel at least 10m in length.
  • If you have a sea time logbook please scan copies of pages and send to us in one PDF document; make sure your name is at the top of each page prior to scanning
  • A current medical fitness examination and a colour blindness eyesight examination, which allows the participant to safely perform the relevant duties on a yacht. Medical/eyesight examinations are valid for a period of two years.
  • We will also accept military letters stating service days for seatime, however, each will be reviewed to ensure they have sufficient experience for the level of certificate they are requesting.
