Master 200 Ton License

License Description:

The Masters license allows you to operate an inspected passenger vessel having a Certificate Of Inspection (COI) stating the number of passengers and area of operation. This would typically include small ferries, sightseeing vessels, head boats, and launches at yacht clubs.

The Masters license will have an Inland or Near Coastal designation based on the bodies of water where you have obtained your sea experience. Inland will allow you to operate inside the Boundary Line with paying passengers, and Near Coastal allows you to operate up to 200 miles from shore with paying passengers.

  • USCG Application
  • Age: 19 years old
  • STCW Basic Safety Training: required on passenger vessels over 100 GT operating beyond the Boundary Line
