RYA Commercial Regulations for Small Vessels (G105)




Anyone who ventures afloat while operating commercially needs to be aware of their responsibilities to the vessel, those around them and the environment.

This eBook covers these responsibilities and has been split into the following three sections:

  • The Legal Framework
  • Regulation of Vessels
  • The Skipper & Crew

Filled with essential information, this book will help its reader understand and execute their duty of care and offers guidance and techniques to making the right choices and decisions for all craft operating commercially, from small RIBs up to 200gt vessels.

This digital version has been enhanced with links to an online support page for further information.

RYA Commercial Regulations is designed to accompany the new RYA’s Professional Practices and Responsibilities course and is written by Simon Jinks, a former RYA Chief Cruising Instructor and an acknowledged authority in the field of small vessel training and safety management.
