In a recent article, SuperyachtNews questioned the role of classification societies and asked whether they are successful in ensuring safe superyacht construction and operation, as well as allowing room for innovation in design and technology. Following some interesting feedback, The Superyacht Intelligence Agency is now undertaking a comprehensive research project to uncover the topic further,  the results of which will go on to directly influence the service offered in the future.

The goal is to understand the superyacht industry’s perception of classification societies and give decision-makers from the ownership, design, build, operations and manufacturing segments the chance to comment on and influence the future of the sector.

If you are a key decision-maker or influencer that is affected by classification societies in some way, we would like to invite you to take part in the survey. It is your chance to have your say about an important topic that affects such a significant demographic in the superyacht market. As a gesture of thanks, three day-passes to The Superyacht Forum (held 12-14 November in Amsterdam) will be awarded to randomly selected survey participants.

Please click here to take the short survey. All information you provide will remain anonymous unless you select otherwise, and the survey should take less than five minutes to complete.
