Maxima is the new suite by RINA created for superyachts

RINA, a multinational inspection, certification and engineering consultation agency, presented Maxima, its new service profile suite created for superyachts, luxurious motor or sailing yachts from 40 to 180 metres in length, to provide their clients with structures made up of specialists, skills and the latest services.

The presentation was held during a prestigious event which took place during the Monaco Yacht Show, in Montecarlo, in which RINA also shared the statistics regarding the superyacht market. The company, working in yachting for twenty years and with even more experience in cruising and shipping, has taken a further step forward into the pleasure boating sector, riding the waves of growth in the superyacht sector.

In just 2021, 128 new yachts between 40 and 180 metres were sold, meaning 78% more compared to 2020 (in which 72 were purchased). In addition, Italy, from January to May 2022, is the top country in yacht construction: 318.

Superyachts, which also have entertainment on board such as water toys, and gamification spaces, mainly sail around the Mediterranean and Caribbean. The main boat owners are Americans who, in 2021 held 22.6% of the world’s yachts, followed by Russians with 8.7%.


Maxima was created to respond to the most pressing needs of yachting and shipping, a sector that is undergoing profound transformation led mainly by decarbonisation and digitalisation. In regards to sustainability and decarbonisation, RINA supports the maritime industry by providing rules and guidelines for design, and certification for superyacht systems for alternative fuels such as hydrogen, ammonia and methanol.

In Maxima’s digital solution portfolio, in addition to Sertica, one of the leading softwares in fleet management, particular attention is paid to protection from cyberattacks, for example, with the  “Cyber Security and Vulnerability Assessment” package which protects the vessel’s communications network against hacking.

Giosuè Vezzuto, Executive Vice President Marine for RINA

We are looking to further grow a segment which is full of opportunities – said  Giosuè Vezzuto, Executive Vice President Marine for RINA – and we are particularly focusing on new technology and innovation, which have always been two of our company’s strong points.

Indeed, RINA Maxima, benefiting from the experience we have in cruise ships and specialisation in different fields, from materials for managing alternative fuels to cybersecurity – added Vezzuto – reflects the modern needs of megayachts in order to specifically respond to the needs of a segment which incorporates increasingly advanced solutions. The objective is to share our knowhow with owners, designers and operators, including our excellence,  to help them face the challenges of the future.
