Local Vessels

There is a distinction between commercial and non-commercial vessels.  Commercial vessels are all vessels that are used in the context of a profession or business or transportation of persons or goods for a fee.

The main category of commercial vessels is formed by passenger vessels. All those that not only transport passengers from A to B, but those that practices commercial water sports as well.
