Do I have to renew my Master of Yachts Limited if I hold a Master of Yachts Unlimited Certificate of Competency?

Technically the answer is no as the Master of Yachts Unlimited is a higher level than the Master of Yachts Limited. 

However, The Master of Yachts Limited is proof that one can command a vessel up to 200 tons, Power or Sail or Power & Sail.
The Master of Yachts Unlimited is proof that one can navigate using a sextant offshore but does not state whether it is Power or Sail. 
Most insurance companies want to see the Master of Yachts Limited and not the Unlimited which is why both are recommended to be kept current.
