WORLD NEWS Start but

WORLD NEWS Start but don’t finish… GREECE: The Greek Government has passed a new law which prohibits yachts not in possession of a Greek commercial licence from commencing and ending charter in Greek waters. Foreign flagged yachts in possession of the licence are able to start and end charters within Greece freely without restriction. Download your FREE Grow Boating Guide The International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) has launched its first ever ‘Grow Boating Guide’ – a collection of strategies and tactics to increase participation in recreational boating globally. The Guide is aimed at both new and established trade associations, as well as special interest groups wishing to start a national trade association and/ or develop a unified campaign to attract new boaters. It is also a key resource for marina operators, dealers and businesses such as charter companies, wanting innovative new ideas on how to grow demand in their services/products and, in the long run, safeguard the future of the industry by attracting new boaters. The Guide is free to download from the ICOMIA library at www.icomia.org New customs point welcomes superyachts to Gold Coast AUSTRALIA: A new customs point at Southport Yacht Club now enables foreign superyachts and other international vessels to sail directly into the Gold Coast for customs clearance. Until last year, superyachts had to clear customs elsewhere, which meant the Coast often missed out on the lucrative superyacht market. Mark Riddell, Southport Yacht Club waterfront manager, said the Club had cleared around 35 boats when this announcement was made end of February, making a “tremendous difference” to the Gold Coast. The decision to include Southport on the list of approved international arrival points is the result of continuous lobbying by Superyacht Australia, government representatives and marine industry stalwarts. At this stage, the message that this facility is available is being continuously promoted to the global superyacht fleet to confirm that international vessels are welcomed to the Coast. If the much needed changes to the charter regulations for foreign flagged vessels come into force, there will certainly be an increase in the number of superyachts clearing at Southport. The closest customs clearing facility to Southport is located at Rivergate Marina & Shipyard in Brisbane. Rivergate, like Southport, provides access to excellent and world renowned refit and maintenance facilities. D-Marin boosts Adriatic business MONTENEGRO: Azmont Investments, the developer of the Portonovi Resort, has appointed Doğuş Group company D-Marin to manage Portonovi Marina in Montenegro. D-Marin runs ten marinas in the eastern Mediterranean where customers and business partners are able to enjoy premier hospitality and benefit from a wide range of bespoke services. www.marinaworld.com - March/April 2018 11
