Yachts

Bureau Veritas provides "first class" classification together with proven expertise in the classification of sail and motor yachts. Our rules support all parties in each yacht project at every step of the way from the very early stage of pre-design to delivery and operations - for recreational crafts to large luxury mega yachts.

 

As an owner or a yacht builder, it is vital to have a partner that is certain in decisions over compliance as well as in maintaining the ability to discuss technical details and innovations throughout the project's lifespan.

 

With six plan-approval offices dedicated to yachts in France, Italy, Turkey, Spain, UK and the US, together with an operational network covering not only strategic yachting areas, but also the entire world, Bureau Veritas helps clients deploy new luxury tailored projects while maintaining high quality standards and high levels of safety, ensuring statutory compliance and minimizing environmental impact.

 

We are recognized by 120 flag administrations, by notification authorities for EC directives, by certifying authorities for small commercial vessels and by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) as well as many other reputable flags for large commercial yacht certifications.

    • EC certification for small crafts below 24 meters
    • Large yacht classification and statutory certification
    • Wide selection of additional class notations: Comfort Class, Helideck, Automation, Cleanship, etc.
