Here is what Part 7 of the Small Vessel Regulations have to say

702*A pleasure craft shall meet

(a)*the construction requirements of this Part; or

(b)*if its date of construction, manufacture or rebuilding or its date of importation is before the day on which these Regulations come into force, the construction requirements in force on that date.[
