Published On: August 13, 2021Categories: Industry News

The American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) published its 61st supplement of Standards and Technical Information Reports for Small Craft, which provides the marine industry with the latest in boat building and repair standards, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association website.

“This is the largest update in ABYC’s history,” said ABYC technical director Brian Goodwin. “Our committees addressed the growing demand for electric propulsion and the increasingly more complex electrical systems we see on boats. This was a major achievement from dedicated industry professionals working together to ensure we keep boating safe.”

ABYC standards are continually researched, developed and revised by more than 400 volunteer technical experts and marine professionals participating in Project Technical Committees. The 2021-2022 updates are available to purchase as a book or in digital format via the ABYC online library and desktop subscription. For more information, visit www.abycinc.org.
