25/50/100 Ton License
The Masters license allows you to operate an inspected passenger vessel
having a Certificate Of Inspection (COI) stating the number of passengers
and area of operation. This would typically include small ferries,
sightseeing vessels, head boats, and launches at yacht clubs.
The Masters license will have an Inland or Near Coastal designation
based on the bodies of water where you have obtained your sea experience.
Inland will allow you to operate inside the Boundary Line with paying
passengers, and Near Coastal allows you to operate up to 200 miles
from shore with paying passengers.
