Boat Classification: How To Determine Which Boat You Need

Recreational boating is one of the favourite pastimes for many; whether you want to go on a solo adventure, a fun fishing trip with your family, or a leisurely luxury cruise with your business partners, you need to have the right watercraft for the ride. A gleaming vessel of your own is sure to be your greatest possession!

Before you make a purchase, you need to have a good idea about what you want from your boat. Only when you have a clear conception that the boat you select will serve its purpose, you can make an informed decision.

Let’s try to classify boats as per the activities they are suited for.

Want To Be A Coxswain?

Want to be a Coxswain quick? Check out the new AMSA Ex38:

‘Seafarers who undertake low complexity duties on vessels less than 12 metres in length are no longer required to submit sea service if operating within the limits of Exemption 38. This exemption has responded to industry feedback, reducing extensive time away from the workplace to complete a certificate of competency.’

To be eligible to operate under this Exemption, seafarers must complete an AMSA approved course and pass a practical assessment. And the best news is that we teach it and there’s no sea service requirements! Pre-study and assignments in your own time and then a face-to-face 5 hour session with our trainer. You could be qualified on the same day!

Our Fight With RMS

We are currently asking students to support in our fight with RMS to prevent some of the changes they are proposing. If these changes are passed, we believe that the safety of boaters on all waters, but especially Sydney Harbour, will be severely compromised. This Government must be told that safety on the water is paramount and some of its proposed changes to reduce ‘red tape’ will result in significant threats to our safety. The proposed changes that we are most concerned about include:

  • Making the boating safety course optional (not compulsory) and only available online
  • All assessment would be done at the RMS (formerly RTA) office/one stop shop by unqualified staff
  • The logbook system would not be changed – so the rorting would continue!
