SYBAss names new technical, environmental director

ADVERTISEMENT

Lorenzo Pollicardo has been appointed as the new technical and environmental director for the Superyacht Builders Association.

Pollicardo, who succeeded the retiring Hans Huisman as of Feb. 1, brings 30 years of experience in the yachting industry to the team, according to a SYBAss press release. He has a background in naval and mechanical engineering, and was secretary general of Nautica Italiana before joining SYBAss.

Since acquiring consultative status within the International Maritime Organization in 2011, SYBAss has played an active role in regulatory developments affecting ocean-going vessels, including superyachts. This increased involvement – which calls for regular consultation with various flag states, including the Red Ensign Group (REG), Malta and the Marshall Islands, and technical bodies such as ISO – reflects the growing complexity and importance of regulations and standards, according to the association.

“Representing SYBAss members in front of IMO, flag states and international technical organisations is both an opportunity and a responsibility,” Pollicardo stated.
