Superyachts to be included in Gibraltar maritime conference


As part of the Gibraltar Maritime Week programme, a three-day conference is to be held focusing on the territory’s commercial marine and superyacht sectors.

The conference is being organised by the Gibraltar Ship and Yacht Registries and it will be held on July 8-10 on-board the five-star yacht Hotel Sunborn Gibraltar.

Of the three days, the second and third will include particular relevance to yachts. Day 2 will focus on ‘Seafarers and Crew’ and include sessions on the following:

Maritime Labour Convention

Crew Repatriation

Immigration – Crew Changes and Visas


RYA Crew Training Facilities in Gibraltar

Captain’s Role with Crew

Day 3 has the title of ‘Superyachts’ and will include nine sessions as follows:

World’s Wealth

Superyacht Communication

Superyacht Insurance

Today’s New Builds and the Future


Engine and Propulsion

Superyacht Certification and Maritime Policy

Maritime Traffic Through Gibraltar

Marina Developments in Gibraltar

Part of the programme on Day 1 will address Port State Control, which, from the Future of Captains and Crew Conference held last week alongside the Palma yacht shows, highlighted this area as a key one for yachts and superyachts.
