MCA to Attend Monaco Yacht Show

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency originator of the Large Commercial Yacht Code is to attend the Monaco Yacht Show.

Experts from the Agency will be available on stand QS100 in the Superyacht UK Pavilion, Darse Sud Tent to talk to industry and the public throughout the duration of the Show and clarify and reaffirm regulations, legislation and policies across the field of yacht coding, surveying, seafarer training and certification, and United Kingdom ship registration.

Staff will advise on all aspects of the MCA Large Commercial Yacht Code and Passenger Yacht Code as well as on manning issues and crew certification.

Roger Towner, Registrar General of Shipping and Seamen, MCA, says:

‘The Monaco Yacht Show is a unique event with an exclusive super yacht focus; considered to be “simply the best in the business”, it is a forum for business professionals from the entire large yacht industry and one in which the MCA is keen to further develop relationships with the clientele and members of the industry and further increase the profile of the MCA in the large yacht field.

He added, “We look forward to fielding all your enquiries on our stand and talking specifically on the new Passenger Yacht Code and the pre-consultation paper LY3.”

Sir Alan Massey, the Chief Executive of the MCA will be addressing the PYA ‘Seachange’ seminar on Thursday 22 September at the Monaco International School, Monaco.
