Organisers announce new dates for #MYS2020
The organising team of the Monaco Yacht Show has decided to postpone the 30th edition of the show after discussions with key participants and other stakeholders. A smaller event was initially planned to take place in Monaco this year, but this was also cancelled due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases worldwide.
The organisers have issued a press release explaining the reasons behind their decision. In the same announcement, they confirmed that the Monaco Yacht Show would take place from the 22–25th September 2021.
Yachting industry remains stable despite pandemic
Although the yachting community has experienced fluctuation due to the economic uncertainties stemming from novel coronavirus, the industry has remained stable overall and seems to be weathering the storm well.
The gradual easing of lockdown restrictions around the world has led to a corresponding increase in activity across yacht sales, chartering, and shipyards. Several harbours and yacht facilities have been reopened in the past weeks, with many governments introducing strict hygiene protocols to ensure the safety of all visitors.
Enjoy socially responsible leisure time this summer
At a time when social distancing and other health measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the community are in force, yachts have become an ideal getaway for those looking to spend some leisure time without having to worry about crowds.
The current situation makes chartering a yacht a very appealing choice for people who want to enjoy the beautiful summer days by the sea, with the added benefit of keeping a safe distance from the public in general.
Maltese shipping registry tops international lists
The Maltese shipping registry has recently placed in the Paris MOU Top 20 for the first time, gaining further international recognition for its fleet, which includes over 800 superyachts. Malta is the largest superyacht register in the European Union and the sixth-largest shipping register worldwide.
Malta owes this achievement to its strategic and central position in the Mediterranean, as well as a wide range of maritime facilities and services that the country offers to the international shipping industry. The latter includes access to leading experts in the administration of yacht chartering and ownership, as well as supporting activities.
Here at Asteria, we provide our yachting clients with a range of services tailored to their specific needs and at the level of involvement they wish to retain. Contact Dr Geraldine Spiriteri for information about pleasure/commercial yacht registration and related services.
