The maximum noise level on deck under the same conditions will be 65 dBa.
The yard will hire the services of a specialized consultant to achieve such noise levels and follow his advice.
All reports from noise consultant will be copied to the Owner.
It is of paramount importance that the vessel is as quiet, rattle and vibration free as possible at rest or at any running speed or configuration.
The vessel's insulation is to be constructed as carefully as possible using the most efficient and up to date materials, technology and techniques available.
The principle stage in the noise and vibration suppression in the vessel is to reduce the noise and vibration at source.
All equipment involving vibrating, moving or rotating parts is to be properly tuned and balanced and mounted on proper foundations with the best possible flexible mounts and dampers.
Particular care should be made that the Engine and Generator Exhaust Silencers are mounted off the prime mover casing or from the Engine Seating and not directly from the overhead.
The Generators are to be located in a separate sound insulated box, fabricated so as to be easily removable in parts and flexibly mounted in the Engine Room to reduce the noise of the running generators.
All ducting, pipe-work, pumps, cable trays etc. are to be flexibly mounted and all bulkhead pipe glands are to be flexible both sides of the Engine Room/Accommodation
All fan and air ducting to have suitable internal sound deadening baffles for air entering or exiting from the Engine Room or other noisy space, including if necessary, a lead membrane within the rock-wool or similar insulation.
All spaces will be insulated that contain noisy equipment, compressors and pumps not in engine room, bow-thruster space, chain lockers, etc.
It is also necessary to insulate the spaces containing relatively low noise equipment or machinery that may become significant when stationary or at night - auto pilot sensors, fans, fridge or ice maker compressors, electric hydraulically operated devices - boat cranes - T.V. turntables, etc.
The Secondary Insulation involves the insulation of all the Passenger and Crew accommodation and service spaces.
All the soles, lining and ceilings of all internal accommodation spaces is to "float", mounted on suitable rubber strips or bushes to avoid ANY contact between the accommodation shell and the hard structure of the vessel.
Particular attention that this isolation is maintained is to be made around doors and windows and ceiling/wall and sole/wall corners.
Behind these "floating" shells, ample insulation is to be applied to all hull and superstructure sides, bulkheads, decks and tank tops.
Areas of high noise transmission will require additional insulation or dampening and reputable expert advice should be applied by the yard to reduce the possibility of noise transmission to a minimum (e.g. hull sides adjacent to engine room bulkheads, etc.)
Cabin soles in Passenger and Crew Areas are to be sound absorbing, and to be constructed in a manner that will satisfy the Owner Representative.
The carpet is to be laid directly on to this flat surface using a thick felt underlay and stretched between suitable gripper rods. All marble or tiled soles should be laid on a rigid and stable base.
Overheads are to be flexibly mounted panels of plywood, aluminium or other material to Interior Designer's specification.
Additional insulation is to be applied throughout the vessel in way of noisy air trunking or plumbing.
Particular care is to be taken that all internal doors latch securely and are completely rattle free when the vessel is underway.
This applies also to all cupboard doors.
Internal doors are to be solid wood in construction, or if sandwich type, to be filled with high density, efficient sound absorbing material.
Rubber draught/sound gasket strips may need to be applied around door frames.
All internal divisions are to be of sandwich construction with plywood outside and suitable density rock-wool inside.
All pillars are to be insulated from the bulkheads on rubber strips and bulkheads are to be "floating" around all edges on rubber strips connecting to soles, other bulkheads and ship side and overheads.
All rubber insulation strips throughout vessel, wherever used, are to be glued with no mechanical fastenings to transmit noise.
All pillars are to be fully insulated from the hard structure, both ends, by double thick rubber gaskets. All pillars are to be filled with sand.
All curtains are to be heavily lined.
The density of the carpet and soft furnishing contribute significantly to the reduction of sound levels within the accommodation spaces.
All sound insulation materials used are to be thoroughly fire proof and in accordance with the relevant regulations.
The engine room deckhead, bulkhead and hullsides above floors, will be entirely covered on the inside by sound absorbent heavy antidrum damping material, a layer of glasswool or rockwool, and flush or perforated aluminium plate, as will be specified.
The outside of the engine room fore- and aft bulkhead, the engine casing outside and the hull sides extending six (6) frames outside the engine room, the areas above the propellers, the rudders and the aftpeak bulkhead, are provided with sound absorbing (anti-drum) materials.
All compartments fore, aft and above the engine room and the compartments above the propeller area, will have sound insulation in the bulkheads and decks.
F.2 THERMAL INSULATION
Glasswool insulation is executed throughout the accommodation on all decks. All insulation material has to fit close and neat against the decks and superstructure. All sheeting material is clipped –on or glued to avoid sagging due to aging.

O.5 QUALITY STANDARD OF FAIRING AND EXTERIOR PAINT
In order to eliminate the subjectivity associated with visual assessment of the standard of surface finish of exterior painted surfaces, the following procedure shall be followed to provide an objective and repeatable evaluation of the surface finish:
●The finish of painted surfaces subject to such analysis, namely the topsides and the superstructure, shall be presented to the Owner’s Representative for acceptance based on the attached procedure; and
●The two most conspicuous aspects of the surface finish shall be the brilliance (the “Gloss”) and an orange peel or haze effect (the “Look”).
The quality of the filler fairing shall be such that a straight edge approximately 3 meters long, located in the vicinity of the surface, shall reflect as a straight, continuous element without breaks or discontinuities in the reflected image.
O.5.3 Gloss and Look reading measurement positions
After a period of 20 days following the last application of top coat, both Gloss and Look readings shall be taken in the following positions:
Starting from a position 1 meter below the cap rail on the port transom corner, three separate readings shall be taken in the same general area at intervals of 3 m. all round, until returning to the port transom corner. This check shall be repeated, at vertical intervals of 1 meter, above and below the previous set of controls until the entire area is covered.
Due to the complexity of shape and surfaces, a drawing representing a density of reading positions equivalent to that of the topsides shall be presented by the Builder to the Owner’s Representative prior to effecting measurements of Gloss and Look.
(c) Gloss Measurement and Acceptance
The Gloss of the surface finishes shall be measured with a professional Glossmeter, in accordance with procedures detailed in ASTM D 532, ISO 2813, DIN 67 530, set for an angle of incidence of 60°, in all positions detailed in this Paragraph 0 (Quality Standard of Fairing and Exterior Paint).
Resulting Gloss values of less than 90 Gloss for either surface measured as detailed in this Paragraph 0 (Quality Standard of Fairing and Exterior Paint) shall be considered as unacceptable. (Allowable error of gloss meter : +- 2 gloss).
(d) Look Measurement and Acceptance
In order to simulate the visual evaluation of the orange peel or haze effect, an appropriate laser-emitting instrument, the “Wave-scan plus”, shall be used to optically scan the resulting wavy, light-dark patterns on the surface.
The average of each group of three readings per position, measured as detailed in this Paragraph 0 (Quality Standard of Fairing and Exterior Paint – Topsides), shall be plotted on a graph as per attachment on Exhibit B to the Technical Specifications (Boero Wave-Scan).
The elliptical boundary marked on the graph shall represent the current highest standards of the benchmark to be met.
The cylindrical boundary marked C on the graph shall represent a higher standard than the ellipse.
Owner shall not accept the surface unless at least 80% of the plotted average falls outside the areas marked A or B.
