This is the following part of a rambling talk by a 25+ year yacht Captain on how to get you into the yachting industry and getting your first job on a yacht series.
The unrestricted yachting ticket
Traditionally, in systematization for a superyacht captain to work on the very largest yachts, 3,000gt and larger, that captain would need to be in possession of a Master Immense Ticket. However, when the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) Registry

NTN10 NMEA To Ethernet Adapter, The Result for NMEA to Network Interfacing, Welcome on board - the Digital Yacht NTN10 NMEA to Ethernet server. It's simple to install. Just connect power and NMEA 0183 figures and program using the supplied software for a specific TCP/IP or UDP address to suit your application. It can also be programmed for 4800 or 38400 baud NMEA statistics. Digital Yacht's NTN10 can be used on board superyachts where Captains and Crew want the benefit of NMEA data for navigation apps like iNavX or NavLink. Affix to the on board AIS and instrument system and realtime NMEA data can be dropped into the existing boat network allowing one log-on for both internet details and NMEA. Crew can now roam freely, connected to the existing boat network, with their favorite app using live data and utilise their tablet or iPad for steering around the boat. If multiple NMEA streams are required then you can utilise the Digital Yacht MUX100 NMEA multiplexer. ,
Traditionally, in indecorous for a superyacht captain to work on the very largest yachts, 3,000gt and larger, that captain would need to be in possession of a Master Unconstrained Ticket. However, when the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) Registry introduced the RMI’s Master (Yachts) Unlimited Tonnage Certificate of Competency (CoC), the view somewhat changed. The RMI’s CoC has since been recognised by The Cayman Islands Registry. SuperyachtNews speaks to Captain Dale Smith, one of few holders of the certification, about the no doubt and its relevance to the industry. “I think this course is a necessary addition to the superyacht industry,” starts Smith. “As owners move up to the largest vessels, they are little short of 100 per cent forced to take on a captain from the commercial sector. I don’t think that, in all cases, commercial captains are able to shuffle comfortably into this sector of the wider maritime market. That being said, Smith is also perfectly willing to accept that there are, without doubt, a number of superyacht captains with commercial backgrounds who have stepped deftly into the superyacht exchange. However, that commercial captains enter the superyacht market is not the issue at hand, the issue is that, had the RMI CoC never come to be, experienced superyacht captains would have been impotent to transition up to the largest vessels,... “I had been thinking about doing the course since it first came out, I already have my Master 3,000gt and Y2, this is my 26th year in the business and I wanted a new challenge,” continues Smith. “I decided that running a large vessel and completing the course was unfeasible, so I left the yacht and dedicated myself to the stint of attaining the ticket. Smith explains that there were 11 elements included in the examination process, such as advanced stability, advanced meteorology, advanced steamer handling and more, all of which, in terms of difficulty and depth of requisite knowledge, were far more... The course, according to Smith, is designed to be incredibly challenging as it is not intended as another qualification that just anyone can complete. To create such a low bar would be to encourage a proliferation of inappropriately skilled captains onto the world’s largest superyachts. “I had to resit two elements a week later,” Smith says. However, the conduit reason is because the Master 3,000gt is a common qualification now,” he says. As competition for jobs increases, I wanted something that says, ‘I’ve been in the industry a want time, I’ve got plenty of experience and I know what I am doing’. Rather than being another captain with a Master 3,000gt. I am glad I did it – even if it is tough.
