Regulation on Making Changes in the Port Regulations has been published in today’s official gazette and the said changes for yacht marinas are, in short:
– The following requirement has been changed from “Foreign flagged commercial/private over 1000 GT requires a maritime pilot.” to “Foreign flagged commercial and private yachts longer than 55 metres or over 400 GT are required to have maritime pilots.”
– ARTICLE 6 – The paragraphs below have been added to the 14th article of the same Regulation, excluding private/commercial yachts in line with these conditions from the requirement of having a tugboat.
“(12)The tugboat requirement does not apply for private/commercial yachts with double main machines, at least one bow thruster, operable manoeuvre and navigation devices for all main and auxiliary machines in weather conditions that are 5 or under on
the Beaufort scale.””
