The CCS (standing for the Chinese Classification Society) Rules for Construction and Classification of Yachts published in 2012 consist of two big parts - the first part addresses yachts shorter than 24 m while the second one deals with larger yachts. Each part has five principal chapters - general information, hull structure, machinery and electrical installations, and outfitting. In addition, in the last part some requirements for LPG power-driven yachts are listed. We would say that the publication contains literally all applicable Rules that are to be used during construction/commissioning of the yachts; of course, the Rules for surveys after constructions are also there in the Rulebook. The requirements for the compliance survey have been provided so that the inspectors are fully aware of the total scope of the inspections to be performed on board. The information relating to the hull structure of the yacht includes three different materials. namely FRP, steel and aluminum. All yacht hull systems have also been addressed together with the shipboard machinery and electrical equipment and outfitting. Truly comprehensive reference book for new building and further maintenance of the yachts.
