Master 100 and 200-ton

The Master 100 and 200-ton license is superior to the OUPV. Because of this, the Master can operate 6-packs. And, in addition, they can also operate vessels carrying more than 6-passengers. Therefore, there are additional sea time, and training requirements.

The 100-ton Master class is 10-days and $1,200. In summary, this class includes both Inland and Near Coastal routes. Secondly, it includes Mate as well. And, in addition it also includes the 25 or 50-ton limits.

The Full 200-ton Master class includes 2-class in 14-days for $1,800. As above, this class includes both Inland and Near Coastal routes. Additionally, it also covers both Mate and Master, Secondly, it includes the 100-ton and less limits too. Meaning that you will have two certs at the end of the class, the Master 100-ton and the Upgrade 100 to 200-ton as well.

The Upgrade 100 to 200-ton class only is 4-days and $600. If you already have a Master 25, 50, or 100-ton Inland or Near Coastal license, then this class is for you. In short, this is an easy way to a 200-ton limit, but it will not change your route. More about Upgrade classes >>

Mate and Master Info

The Master license is issued with an Inland, Near Coastal, or All Ocean route. Additionally, it includes tonnage limits of 25, 50, 100, and 200-tons. There are also higher tonnage limits not discussed here. Here is a summary of the sea-time required for each license. Note that this is sorted by routes. Inland, Near Coastal, and All Ocean.

The Mate license is issued with the same routes and tonnage limits as the Master. Additionally, the mate can stand a wheel-watch on an inspected vessel. But they cannot be the captain of the vessel. However, the Mate can upgrade to Master of the same tonnage without taking an exam. Therefore, if you don’t have the time for master, get the Mate of the same tonnage and upgrade later. Lastly, a Mate Near Coastal can operate as an OUPV license.
