More than for any other vessel type in the maritime industry, the finish of a superyacht is paramount and takes up a significant share of building time and costs. Yet in the evaluation process of the coating’s finish, there is much room for improvement. Several respected industry representatives have contributed to the development of the RMCI Course and its tailored syllabus. This course is fully endorsed by the global industry trade organisations the Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss) and the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA).
The RMCI course is part of an industry wide programme for improved professionalism in the area of superyacht coatings. Over time certification becomes the standard for coatings surveyors and inspectors operating in the superyacht industry.
Together we will ultimately accomplish that paint performance can be specified and therefore secured in the building contract, the paint performance can be consistently measured, reported and objectively evaluated and the client will be assured to get what has been agreed upon. On behalf of the members of SYBAss and ICOMIA we encourage coatings surveyors and inspectors to complete the Registered Marine Coating Inspector course and qualification so that we collectively deliver a performance each client can expect from a professional superyacht industry – with certainty and confidence.
