With education and professional development a key component of ISS’s Mission and Strategic Objectives, we are delighted to again present YachtInfo at FLIBS. In response to the global industry’s request for best timing and accessibility, we’ve structured the program to ensure as many who would like to attend can without compromising time at the show.
YachtInfo seminars are now being presented each morning from November 5-November 8 from 8:30 am – 10:00 am at the Swimming Hall of Fame, courtesy of AIM Pavilion. Topics cover two main subjects: Superyacht Business and Superyacht Operations with two days covering each.
YachtInfo FLIBS is made possible by Royal Huisman, perennial Education Sponsor.

Schedule: 8:30-10:00 each morning
5 November: MLC Two Years On – What operators have learned in practice
Panel Chair – Michael Reardon, Reardon Yacht Consulting

MLC: Two Years On
Two years after the implementation of the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 and the superyacht industry seems to have survived. As the first “MLC Crew Case” has gone to court and reports come in from Port States, it’s a good time to take a look at how MLC has affected the industry in general, examine deficiencies that have been tripping superyachts up and suggest some strategies for dealing with the MLC going forward.
6 November: Crew Turnover – How Captains can retain good crew for longer
Panel Chair – Karen Passman, Impact Crew

Achieving Crew Stability
Every captain and owner enjoys the prospect of a stable crew. Unfortunately, many do not achieve it. High crew turnover has become an accepted way of life for the industry. This panel, chaired by Karen Passman, founder of Impact Crew, will debate and discuss views as to what can be done to increase crew longevity. Impact Crew recently conducted a crew turnover survey to identify the push and pull factors that cause crew to leave their positions. The audience will additionally be invited to contribute their experiences, ideas, and solutions to this issue.
7 November: Destination Cuba – How the country is opening up as a prime destination
Panel Chair – Michael Moore, Moore & Co

Destination Cuba!
It has been nearly a year since Presidents Obama and Castro agreed on how they would enable U.S. citizens to travel to Cuba. The implications of this were immense. The Superyacht Industry does not stand still when presented with an opportunity, and in the past ten months numerous activities covering Chartering, Destination Development, Infrastructure and Liaison have gained traction. This panel will share Experiences, Insights and Advice on how our industry can seize this opportunity.

8 November: Superyacht Charter – Crisis or celebration?

Superyacht Chartering: Crisis or Celebration?
In the Med at least, Charter brokers seem to be reaching new levels of apoplexy as they deal with too many charters for too few yachts. On the surface that would seem like good news—but is it a good thing? Or is it signalling the death knell of chartering as we knew it?
