M/Y Legend is first to obtain certification of compliance with Maritime Labour Convention, 2006

M/Y Legend is the first commercial yacht in the Marshall Islands registry to obtain certification of compliance with the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006).

“When the MLC, 2006 was announced I was very keen to get actively involved in preparing her for compliance,” Capt. Egon Viljoen said. “Thanks to her design, excellent support from the Republic of the Marshall Islands Registry, Lloyd’s Register and our DPA, I found the process very smooth despite no one having done this before with a superyacht.”

This is a large step for the yachting industry as it provides a road map for other commercial yachts to follow prior to the entry into force of the Convention on Aug. 20, 2013.
