Isle of Man Ship Registry launches Pleasure Yacht Plus service


Isle of Man Ship Registry is launching the Pleasure Yacht Plus service at the Monaco Yacht show 2017.

The service offers registered pleasure yachts enhanced surveys and third party oversight.

‘The Isle of Man Ship Registry is continually evolving to meet owners’ wishes for the enhancement of safety and the promotion of excellence on board. As a globally respected flag of quality, we are seeing a growing number of ship owners registering large superyachts for personal use but with the crew and capacity, and hence the risk profile, of a commercial vessel. The Pleasure Yacht Plus service provides a bespoke survey regime aimed at confirming voluntary compliance with internationally recognised codes of safety.” Comments Dick Welsh, director of the Isle of Man Ship Registry.

“This year’s Monaco Yacht Show will be a fantastic opportunity to promote this new product and meet with potential new clients for the Isle of Man Ship Registry.” Welsh adds.

Andy Roy, chair of the Isle of Man Superyacht Forum, commented: “Monaco Yacht Show is the yacht industry’s premier event for showcasing the Manx flag and is the perfect opportunity for developing business relationships and new contacts. The Superyacht Forum Committee will be attending again this year to promote our members’ expertise and the Island’s world-class Registry.”
