SOLASThe vast majority of ships trading Internationally today are certified in accordance with the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS). The SOLAS Convention is one of the oldest maritime safety conventions with its first version being adopted back in 1914. Subsequent versions of the convention reflected the amendments adopted throughout the years, the most significant being the version adopted in 1974 which included the tacit acceptance procedure.

Our range of services in this sector vary from the survey of various ship types on behalf of flag Administrations, managers, underwriters and prospective buyers to the regulatory and design consultancy to builders and other entities undertaking ship conversion and repair projects.

Mega-yachts or Passenger ships?

Commercial vessels carrying over 12 passengers are regarded as passenger ships by the SOLAS convention, for this reason many mega-yachts are restricted to cruise with just 12 passengers on board thus limiting their charter revenue and their overall potential.

The design and build or conversion of a mega-yacht to SOLAS passenger ship standards can be a very challenging task to undertake and which may result in a very lengthy and expensive process. We have successfully undertaken such projects and have built a strong relationship with flag Administrations and class societies along the way.
