Following a highly successful conference in 2009, RINA is pleased to return to Genoa for theMaltese Falcon second edition of the super and mega yachts conference. 

The luxury yacht sector has not been unnaffected by the global financial situation, but it has survived in good form and  is growing again.  New regulations are being developed to deal with the increasing size of vessels and these are both helping and challenging designers and builders of the latest generation of yachts.  This growth in size and complexity coupled with the new technologies, increased safety and environmental issues bring new challenges requiring innovative solutions. 

Today's owners are demanding ever greater levels of comfort and luxury, not only in terms of the vessel fittings and styling but also in the vessels behaviour whilst underway and at anchor.  They are also increasingly aware of the impact of their vessels on the environment. 

Many vessels are now used for charter and this has implications for the way in which the vessel is designed and classed. 


Papers will be presented on all aspects of large sail and motor yacht design, construction, and operation, from designers, researchers, manufacturers, operators, and regulators. Topics include the following:super and mega yachts- Sultan

o All Aspects of Design - Hull, General Arrangement, Interior, Features etc.
