Essential safety equipment for yachts and non-SOLAS vessels

"History

The lucky yachtsman"

On 5 January 1997 the single-handed Tony Bullimore’s yacht participating in around-the-globe race capsized in freezing waters between Australia and Antarctica hit by a violent storm. The yachtsman managed to survive in the air pocket inside the hull. But what were the chances for the rescue 2600 kilometres away from land?

Luckily, experienced yachtsman was prepared for emergency. His boat Exide Challenger was equipped with Argos satellite beacons which transmitted the position of the craft to the French ground station and then to the race headquarters. In no time the position data was relayed to the Australian rescue authorities in Canberra which launched the rescue operation. Moreover, Bullimore managed to activate his 406 MHz EPIRB allowing Australian naval frigate Adelaide to home in on the signal. 

After five days of search the yachtsman was found when he managed to dive out of the upside down yacht and was taken on the Adelaide board . The leading part in the salvation of Tony Bullimore played the proper safety equipment of the yacht ensuring that he could be found and rescued.

safety equipment for yachts

The requirements of international and local regulations for smaller boats and yachts are much more lower than for big seagoing vessels. Below we have prepared for you the list of safety equipment recommended for yachts and other non-SOLAS vessels so you could get a fuller idea about it. 

Some essential equipment is required to be found on board in any case. Other pieces of equipment should be applied depending from the yacht size, sailing area, voyage distance offshore and its purpose. For example, fishing vessels might require specialized equipment and sonar.

Remote Surveys - how they are performed

Remote surveys are not a new form of service maintenance; they have been used for some years already. Lots of companies turn to digitalization of their work and widen the range of services they provide.

But today in maritime sphere the demand for this form of survey is bigger than ever due to coronavirus outbreak. The maritime registers faced the necessity to find solutions for the clients who need surveys and inspections right now.

Remote Surveys

What the ship owners can get now?

In light of such situation, some registers grant extension of the certificate validity. For example, Russian Maritime Register (RS) extends the validity of its certificates for 3 months extra.

Japanese Register Class NK allows to carry out the remote surveys or even to postpone them, if approved by the flag state authorities.

The U.S. Coast Guard gives additional time to install the ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) for the vessels impacted by the pandemic. Thus, the vessels with BWTS compliance dates before April 1, 2021 will have an extra 12 months to comply.
