Luxury & Super Yacht Service
Collaboration between members of the Red Ensign Group (REG), which includes the UK, and the industry as a whole has led to the creation of a new yacht code. The REG Yacht Code, which was launched on 13 November 2017 at the Global Superyacht Forum in Amsterdam, has taken into account all the expertise gained across almost two decades of regulating the large yacht sector since the Code of Practice for the Safety of Large Commercial Sailing and Motor Vessels, or LY1, was published by us in 1997. In its new format, the Code is made up of two parts with common annexes - such as for over-side working systems, sailing vessels and helicopter landing areas. It will keep the familiar format of the existing REG codes while being more dynamic to industry change and development.
Ensuring you have the latest editions of charts and publications onboard, and correcting these important sources of navigational information is a time-consuming business, particularly when your yacht has a busy and complicated voyage plan.
Todd Navigation, an International ADMIRALTY Chart Agent, can help by providing you with all your chart and publication requirements, together with the means to organise your charts and publications, and keep them up to date. We will look after all your requirements, wherever you are in the world.
Your solution may depend on the Flag State of your vessel and its requirements. We can help you decipher the legislation. We have an excellent team of experts to assist, including our Managing Director William Todd, Master Mariner, and Brian Miller (Royal Navy retired), Digital Products Manager. We understand that the ultimate navigation package is different from yacht to yacht, and with our experience in conjunction with your needs, we will arrive at an agreed navigational resource for your vessel.
Chart & Publications Outfit Management Service
An added benefit of our Outfit Management Service is the Weekly Chart Correction List. Charts and publications can be active or inactive (sleeping); inactive products do not have new editions supplied.
Also we ensure your vessel has the updated and legal charts and publications, from British Admiralty to IMO, ITU, OCIMF, Chamber of Shipping, etc. If your vessel is on a particular voyage we can limit the Outfit Management Service to only those charts and publications necessary to the safe and statutory operation of the ship.
Each vessel receives a laminated Outfit Management Supply Certificate and inventory binder, which can be shown to Port State Inspectors/Class Surveyors if necessary. The certificate lists the services we have agreed to supply. It is renewed annually, together with a copy of the vessel’s current inventories.
