A new partnership of private and public sectors for the Isle of Man

This year’s Monaco Yacht Show saw a new collaboration between private and public sectors from the Isle of Man.

The newly refurbished government stand was a joint venture between the Isle of Man Ship Registry and the Isle of Man Superyacht Forum, which saw professionals from the private sector on-hand to answer any technical questions in conjunction with Ship Registry surveyors and registrars.

Dick Welsh, director of Isle of Man Ship Registry was quoted saying, “The newly designed stand allows for more people to visit at once and multiple meetings to take place simultaneously.”

With many high profile Manx flagged yachts on show this year and the second annual Isle of Man Superyacht Forum breakfast taking place, the public/private partnership was a positive step in highlighting the Island as a centre of excellence for the superyacht industry.

The Isle of Man Superyacht Forum is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year (2014) and currently has 27 members.
