Yacht Comfort JIP set to start Yacht Comfort JIP set to start

MARIN is about to start a Joint Industry Project concerning the assessment, prediction and monitoring of yacht comfort. Despite the availability of criteria to assess the comfort of a yacht, it still remains a very subjective matter.

Participants are welcome to join.
