The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC), the nonprofit organization that develops the global voluntary safety standards for the design, construction, maintenance and repair of recreational boats, is set to publish its largest supplement ever of the Standards and Technical Information Reports for Small Craft. With more than 75 percent of revised documents included as the standards basis for the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Boat & Yacht Certification Program, manufacturers designing for the 2023 model year will need to understand and apply standards updates that affect their products.
ABYC standards are continuously researched, developed and revised by more than 400 volunteer marine professionals on Project Technical Committees. Every year ABYC publishes its updated manual with new and revised safety standards, keeping current with the marine industry’s newest trends and technologies.
The manual can be pre-ordered and will be officially released August 1.
