A new IMO code will affect ships and any commercially coded superyachts over 500 GT wishing to enter the Polar regions from next year onwards.

By Kim Hollamby: METSTRADE Online Community reporter

Compliance is graded into three categories. Category C has the least onerous requirements but might not enable a superyacht to gain the necessary permissions to explore more challenging waters. Category B is likely to be adopted for Polar exploration yachts.

James Roy, Yacht Design Director at BMT Nigel Gee Ltd provided a comprehensive overview of the Polar Code on the METSTRADE InnovationLAB and you can see video highlights and his Powerpoint presentation here.
