ABS has published Guidance Notes on Yacht Design and released new Yacht Structure Assessment software, both geared toward streamlining and simplifying the yacht design and plan approval processes.

The Guidance helps support innovation by simplifying the plan approval process for designs that fall outside the arrangements covered by statutory conventions. The software further streamlines the design and approval process, providing a fast and efficient check of structures and material.

"ABS recognizes yacht designers are always innovating, and technology is evolving rapidly, but safety remains a paramount focus throughout the design stage. We produced this guidance and assessment software to simplify and accelerate the plan review process," said ABS Yacht Sector Lead, Daniele Bottino.

"The notes offer guidance on standardizing key design innovations that are increasingly applied in new yacht construction, while the software provides a straightforward platform to identify acceptable structural and material strength," Daniele added.

The guidance provides designers and builders information on previously approved designs with an equivalent level of safety to that outlined in statutory conventions. Combining the ABS guidance with the Yacht Structure Assessment software, designers can quickly develop and assess new designs.
