A new superyacht registration code due to be introduced by the UAE on July 1 is expected to be the most specific yet for privately owned yachts over 24m.

To date such yachts have not had their own classification but under this new code they will gain their own category. The new code has been formulated by DNV, the UAE National Transport Authority and Abu Dhabi MAR (ADM).

Superyacht Business understands that one of the first yachts to be registered will be the Swift 141 rebuild project at ADM
