Monaco Yacht Show on the horizon

Manx companies at premier boating event

The Monaco Yacht Show is on the horizon - and Manx industry will be showcasing registry expertise, and a comprehensive range of other services. 

It's the world's most prestigious event for the super yacht industry.

The 27th edition of the show will take place from 27th to 30th September this year - hosting nearly 600 exhibiting companies from across the globe.

Events there create a platform for companies to meet with industry contacts and clients, and seek out new business opportunities.

Trust and corporate service provider, Knox House Trust Ltd., is bringing in a senior team of representatives from its wider group.

Business Development Director, James Porter, says the company is particularly excited due to the increase in ultra-high-net-worth individuals expected to be there.

He says there'll be greater opportunity to talk to potential buyers, and assist in navigating the complex and changing landscape in purchasing the high value asset.

Manx-based International helicopter management and operating company, Luviair Ltd., will also be there.

It'll feature satellite operations in the South of France, and in the Caribbean.
