Transit of the Panama Canal

Advice for small vessels, inclusive of yachts (Less than 125 Ft. LOA)

By KARSTEN - 02/08/2017

Please be advised that the Pilot Organization at the Panama Canal
has notified the Canal Authorities that they should have more control
of the transits by small crafts inclusive yachts, which presently only
requires a Advisor. The negotiation is in an early stage; but if the Pilot
Organization is successful and a regular Pilot will be required, no doubt
the transit cost for small craft will increase considerably.

Shall keep you advised of developments but felt you should be advised
