This book is written especially for those who sail aboard pleasure vessels of any size, whether sail, motor or both. In the UK, a 'pleasure vessel' is defined as:
a) a vessel which at the time it is being used is
(i) • in the case of a vessel wholly owned by an individual or individuals used only for the sport or pleasure of the owner or the immediate family or friends of the owner; or
• in the case of a vessel owned by a body corporate used only for sport or pleasure and on which the persons are employees or officers of the body corporate, or their immediate family or friends; and
(ii) on a voyage or excursion which is one for which the owner does not receive money for or in connection with operating the vessel or carrying any person, other than as a contribution to the direct expenses of the operation of the vessel incurred during the voyage or excursion;
b) • any vessel wholly owned by or on behalf of a members' club formed for the purpose of sport or pleasure which, at the time it is being used, is used only for the sport or pleasure of members of that club or their immediate family; and for the use of which any charges levied are paid into club funds and applied for the general use of the club; and
• in the case of any vessel referred to in the paragraphs above no other payments are made by or on behalf of users of the vessel, other than by the owner.
A pleasure vessel of 13.7m (45 ft) or more in length is classified as a Class XII vessel in the UK. A 'pleasure vessel' that carries more than 12 passengers ceases to be a UK Class XII vessel, while any size of yacht that is used commercially, for sport and leisure, such as charter boats, ceases to be a 'pleasure vessel'. Yachts that cease to be 'pleasure vessels' and/or Class XII vessels are subject to different legal requirements and Codes of Practice. Those regulations are not taken into account in this book and must be reviewed before any safety equipment is purchased.
This book complies with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) resolution A.657(16).
Throughout this book the word 'Skipper' is used to describe the captain or master of a yacht. The Skipper is not necessarily the owner of the vessel, though he may be. Likewise, the use of the masculine and feminine pronoun is arbitrary. It does not indicate that one gender or another is preferred or desired for any particular job or function.
