BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


Territorial waters can be defined as those which fall within the jurisdictional boundaries of a particular country. This term is often conflated with the territorial seas which surround a country's ocean shorelines.

Meaning


Most countries that are not landlocked will claim sovereign jurisdiction over ocean waters that extend 12 miles from their shorelines. These are established by international conventions regarding laws of the sea.

Context


Commercial vessels operating in the territorial waters of United States must adhere to USCG vessel documentation requirements regarding their respective activities.

Conclusion


Both recreational and commercial boaters should become familiar with any rules applicable to offshore operations.

Please help your fellow boaters by wiki-sharing any comments or experiences regarding this subject.
