Coding Consultancy

All UK vessels operating commercially under the British Flag or in British Waters are required by law to comply with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) Small Commercial Vessel and Pilot Boat Code. All boats under 24 metres (78 feet) in length that are in commercial use need to be coded.

Coding your boat can be a time-consuming and detailed task. We are on hand to undertake all the different aspects from advising on all safety equipment to arranging the survey.

Costs depend upon a number of variables depending on:

  • Which coding you go for
  • How much safety equipment you need
  • How much additional safety equipment needs to be fitted to the boat

We will facilitate the coding survey and if required will obtain the items required to be purchased and fitted to pass the coding survey.
