REG publishes revised Yacht Code (17 January 2024)

Released on 1 January, this revision from the Red Ensign Group represents the first major update since 2019…
The Red Ensign Group (REG) has announced a significant revision to its hallmark Yacht Code, a comprehensive framework that has helped set the benchmark for yacht safety and design standards since 1997. Originally developed by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, the REG Yacht Code has been instrumental in guiding the design, construction and operation of large yachts.

According to REG, the latest iteration of the Code has been two years in the making, developed in close collaboration with the REG Yacht Code Industry Working Group. This consortium, including shipyards, designers, management companies and regulatory authorities, has played a critical role in ensuring the revised Code meets the industry’s broad spectrum of needs.

Central to the new revision is the incorporation of recent regulatory amendments by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the adaptation to contemporary trends and innovations in yacht design.
