Guidelines for Live Aboard Vessels - 2019
Guidelines for Live Aboard Vessels
The Existing Occupancy agreement denotes Live Abroad criteria as being subject to 4 main areas, with the main description in point
(I) the vessel is of sufficient size, is safely manoeuvrable under it’s own power and suitably equipped to sustain living on board. Unfortunately, this description does not fully clarify “Live Aboard” criteria and in order to defuse any confusion, the following guidelines have been developed and are effective immediately.
1. Vessel Length a minimum of 34’ or 10.36m (Deck Length)
2. Shower/Toilet cubicle must be fitted.
3. Boats shall not discharge any untreated sewage or otherwise empty latrines into the Marina. Unless fitted with Holding tanks or Lectra Sans (or similar), occupants must at all times utilise the onshore facilities provided. Must met minimal requirements for plumbing (macerated toilet minimum).
4. Cooking (ie 2 Burner/hot plate stove or microwave) & Refrigeration facilities.
5. Permanent berths/bedding for the number of approved persons.
6. Engine Capabilities to adequately manoeuvre the vessel.
7. Approve Shore Power connection.
8. Adequate Water Storage facilities.
9. Safety & Fire Fighting Equipment as specified.
10. The vessel must be clean, tidy and in a good undamaged condition.
NB: These are intended as a minimum guideline only and may on application to the RPYC be amended dependent upon the vessel’s configuration and length of stay.
