Six Pack Charter

WikiTagsWikiShare


BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A six pack charter can be defined in boating terms as an excursion arrangement where an owner operated boat is limited by regulations to carrying six passengers or less for hire. Although typically applied to sport fishing, a six-pack boat can be utilized for any type of such limited carriage.

Meaning


The primary reason for a six passenger limitation is that of avoiding more restrictive equipment, safety, and operational requirements by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Context


Six pack charter boats must be Coast Guard documented and the respective certificate of documentation must be qualified for what is known as a Coastwise Trade Endorsement.

Conclusion


Coast Guard operational violations can result in extreme penalties and perhaps even a forfeiture of the subject vessel. Boat owners who are unfamiliar with such requirements should accordingly seek a professional consultation.
