Who needs a Medical Certificate?
The medical exam is set to establish whether or not anyone working on a seagoing vessel, such as a private or charter yacht, has any medical conditions that might cause him or her to be unable to perform certain duties at sea.
For obvious safety reasons, insurance companies require that yachts comply with safe manning requirements in order for the yacht to be insured. This means that all crew must be fully STCW compliant and to obtain an STCW certificate you will have to have completed a Seafarers Medical exam.
In short, to obtain work on a yacht, you will have had to pass your Seafarer’s Medical at some stage.
While it isn’t a requirement for actual crew training, it is a good idea to do the medical before you start training in order to identify any of these medical conditions that could prevent you from working in the yachting industry. You wouldn’t want to spend money on sailing courses only to fail the medical afterwards.
How much does it cost?
The Medical Certificate costs 140€
Usually a certificate without restrictions is valid for 2 years.
If you lose your certificate we can easily re-issue you another one.
You can pay by cash or cheque or bank transfer
