Our expertise

Is your motor yacht or sailing yacht 24 metres or more and for commercial use?

Then we have the inhouse expertise to ensure you have the right, up-to-date charts and publications on-board to ensure you comply with your Flag State & SOLAS regulations!

Read up on these regulations here and here.

In short...

The Large Commercial Yacht Code or, LY2, came into effect on September 24th of 2004.

Chartering is a commercial use of a vessel and therefore all yachts engaged in chartering activities must comply with the Code.

LY2 was the 2005 update of the original “Code of Practice for the Safety of Large Commercial Sailing and Motor Vessels” known as LY1; and has now been replaced by the Red Ensign Group Yacht Code, originally published May 1st of 2014, updated in 2019.
The code applies to “Red Ensign” flagged vessels.

The Code requires the carriage of appropriate charts and publications:

Every vessel should carry nautical charts and nautical publications to plan and display the ship’s route for the intended voyage and to plot and monitor positions throughout the voyage.

An approved electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) may be accepted as meeting these chart carriage requirements.

Back-up arrangements to meet these functional requirements should be provided where this function is partly or fully filled by electronic means: this means single ECDIS and paper charts or duplicate ECDIS.

Bogerd Martin is an International Admiralty Chart Agent and can help by filling in all your charts and publication requirements, both paper and digital. We’ll also make sure to keep them updated, wherever you are in the world.

How do we start?

We’ll begin by identifying your needs based on trading area, types of charts & publications used (paper or digital or both), types of updating services, voyage planning tools, backup requirements etc.
The best suited solution might depend on what the Flag State requires for your vessel.

So, let’s have a look what we have to offer!


Charts & Publication Outfit Management Service

Our Standard Folio Management service starts with a detailed inventory of charts and publications, including current editions you have on-board. Once you’ve supplied us with this information, we’ll enter the details into a database, specific to your yacht.

If your vessel is on a particular voyage and you do not require new editions of charts for areas you may not visit again, we can limit the Outfit Management Service to only those charts and publications necessary to the safe and statutory operation of the ship.

We can do this for all charts and publications of various publishers from British Admiralty or Imray to IMO, ITU, OCIMF, USCG, NOAA, Chamber of Shipping, and more.

Those who join our Folio Management program are assigned a dedicated Folio Manager. Following up orders, answering queries, familiar with your way of working, your Folio Manager is there to ensure you receive the highest level of personal service.

The Folio Management program is for both paper and digital outfits.
