Isle of Man holds first Superyacht and Aircraft Conference


Equiom is pleased to announce the Isle of Man's first Superyacht and Aircraft Conference. The conference, run by the Isle of Man Yacht Forum, will be held in association with the Isle of Man Ship and Aircraft Registers, and is the first event of its kind to be organised by a flag state.

The event will take place on Wednesday 2nd September 2009 at Canary Wharf and will showcase the many benefits of the Isle of Man as a leader in yacht and aircraft registration and management.

The conference will bring together intermediaries, lawyers, brokers, insurers and builders in the ship and aircraft sector to discuss the outlook for the industry in the current economic climate, as well as the challenges and opportunities for businesses operating in this sector. It will give those attending the opportunity to not only hear of the benefits of the Isle of Man, but also to meet with leading government figures and those in the private sector who have made the Island a market leader.

The programme of the conference will cover: corporate structuring, choice of registry and flagging, crewing, VAT and tax, and aircraft registration and management. Case studies will be used to give detailed examples of possible problems and solutions. The presenters will be professionals and specialists drawn from the Yacht Forum's membership.

Members of Equiom's Yachtsmann, Flymann and Crewmann teams will be presenting and attending the conference. Keynote speakers include:

  • Martin Redmayne (Chairman), Editor in Chief, The Yacht Report Group
  • Dick Welsh, Director of Isle of Man Shipping Registry
  • Brian Johnson, Director of Isle of Man Aircraft Registry
