More than for any other vessel type in the marine industry, the finish of a superyacht is paramount and takes up a significant share of build time and costs. Yet in the evaluation process of the coating’s finish, there is room for improvement. Several respected industry representatives have contributed to the development of the RMCI Course and its tailored syllabus.

The RMCI qualification is part of an industry-wide programme for improving professionalism in the area of superyacht coatings. Over time certification has become 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 qualification so that we collectively deliver top-quality performance for each client from a professional superyacht industry – with certainty and confidence.
