Maritime Labor Convention
Maritime Labor Convention 2006 and Its Effects on Yachting
On August 20, 2013, the Maritime Labor Convention (MLC) came into force. It will impact owners’ ability to commercially charter their yachts and will change the way we build yachts. Devised to protect the unprotected crew, the MLC adds another burdensome layer of governance on yachting.

MCA representatives attended the Monaco Yacht Show in September and made themselves available for questions and clarifications.
