Design & Construction of Super & Mega Yachts
10-11 May 2017,The Gelata Museo del Mare, Genoa, Italy Registration Open
Following on the highly successful series of conferences, RINA is pleased to return to Genoa for the fifth edition of its Super and Mega Yachts conference.
The increasing size of vessels and complexity coupled with the new technologies and stringent new environmental regulations are providing even greater challenging of designers and builders of the latest generation of yachts. Today's owners are also 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 and many owners want to go beyond the compulsory requires and introduce innovative technologies to improve their “green credentials.”
Many vessels are now used for charter and this has implications for the way in which the vessel is designed and classed.
