ISS to honor PYC designs, too

ADVERTISEMENT

The International Superyacht Society (ISS) has added an award for Passenger Yacht Code (PYC) Design to its annual awards presentations.

The PYC is related to carriage of up to 36 passengers use under the Red Ensign Group. In meeting the code, ISS wants to acknowledge “the extraordinary achievement of designers and builders in complying with challenging PYC restrictions while also creating incredible lifestyle designs using exotic materials and unique construction techniques”.

Cayman Islands Shipping Registry and Wright Maritime Group have joined to co-sponsor the inaugural award.

Since only “a small number of yachts” have been built to PYC this far, for this first award, the ISS’s board of directors has decided to include all PYC yachts delivered up to and including 2016. For next year and beyond, nomination timeline eligibility for the PYC award will be based on that of all ISS design awards, currently 1 May through 30 April of the following year.

Judging criteria for the PYC design award has been provided by one of the authors of the code. The award joins ISS’s seven design awards in three size classes, two propulsion classes, interior and refit.
