The Malta Merchant Shipping Directorate has recently developed the Passenger Yacht Code (PYC) which regulates the registration of passenger yachts under the Malta flag. These vessels must meet SOLAS and other applicable Conventions’ requirements. In lieu of certain disproportionally onerous Conventions’ requirements, a passenger yacht may meet the requirements of the PYC which includes a number of dedicated equivalencies. The PYC is specifically designed and intended for passenger yachts which are engaged on international voyages, not carrying cargo, but which carry more than 12 passengers up to 36 passengers, and not more than 200 persons.
