Kebijakan Keselamatan pada Kapal Non-Konvensi di Indonesia

Pariwisata berbasis maritim di Indonesia telah menjadi minat yang menarik di kalangan wisatawan domestik dan internasional. Terutama wisata ‘island-hopping‘ dengan menggunakan kapal tradisional bernama ‘Phinisi’ yang bisa berlayar di kawasan pesisir kepulauan Indonesia. Meningkatnya jumlah penggunaan kapal tradisional juga meningkatkan perhatian yang berkembang mengenai keselamatan pelayaran untuk menggunakan kapal ‘Phinisi’.

Kapal ‘Phinisi’ digolongkan sebagai kapal non-konvensikarena kapal ‘Phinisi’ terbuat dari bahan kayu dan memilliki berat di bawah 500 Gross Tonnage (“GT”), sehingga kapal ‘Phinisi’ tidak tunduk pada ketentuan Safety of Life at Sea convention 1974 (“SOLAS”).
