Thank you for the report, which is very thorough … It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and to follow through the survey with you. You couldn't have been clearer as you explained everything to me. For my part it was not only informative, but a real bonus to watch you work and to understand more about the boat. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Thanks to your survey we have negotiated a contribution towards the rudder bearing repair.

MCA Coding

Gerry is a MECAL accredited surveyor. All UK vessels in commercial use, up to 24 metres load line length, which go to sea and carry no more than 12 passengers and/or cargo, are required by law to comply with the MCA Small Commercial Vessel and Pilot Boat Code of Practice and be issued with Certificates by MECAL Certifying Authority.

 

The Code covers:

 

 

MCA Coding is required for yachts operating commercially under British Flag or other Red Ensign Group flags. The service is offered to yachts of up to 24m load line length.

As MCA Code compliance can appear daunting, but we can guide you to get the boat compliant prior to the compliance examination so that the whole process proceeds very smoothly. The coding process incurs fees to MECAL and also the marine surveyor’s fees.

Transfer between Certifying Authorities is usually no problem. Therefore it may be convenient if the boat changes home port to transfer to MECAL which has a local surveyor.  This will avoid any unnecessary travel charges for the surveys and will ensure an immediate response when required.
