The global tendency of growing of motor yachts and sailing yachts measurement and their displacement and capacity.

Necessity of yachts conformity to International Rules and conventions, regulating safety at sea.

- The small experience in designing and building of yachts as new, dynamically developing direction in ship building, the absence of complete prototypes, statistic data (in particular) of weight loads.
- Application of new unique equipment.
- The deficit of information about equipment on the first designing stages.
- Necessity of joining to International cooperation.
