Boat regulations
« on: September 14, 2016, 12:57:10 PM »
Hi I am thinking of buying a small speedboat. Do i need any qualifications before using it.
I have been told that a Captains license is needed if the engine size is greater than 25hp.
TIA
Roger

The Turkish government demands that everyone using their
waters must carry an Amateur Seaman’s Certificate which is issued after
an examination of more than 50 questions about sailing, weather, safety,
technical issues, marine communication, law and international
regulations.

But if the skipper of a leisure craft, sailing or motor,
carries an ICC – the International Certficate of Competence, they do
not need the Amateur Seaman’s Certificate.

A Government officer based
at Didim marina in Turkey, Batur Kumbaki, said the penalty for not
having the ASC was $1,000 and it applied to everyone using Turkish
waters, including those chartering boats on holiday.

I had a chat to the harbour master near to Matisse 3 weeks ago. He said if the boat was less than 5 metres and had an engine capacity of less than 1000cc then you didn't need a license. No idea if that's right or wrong but I was interested in same question.
