Our team will be embarking on their journey to Monaco next week for what is arguably recognised as the biggest event in the yachting calendar, the Monaco Yacht Show.
The prestigious event, which renews itself each year to adapt and reflect the constant changes in an industry driven by the desires and purchasing power of its wealthy clientele, is set to attract over 30,000 visitors to Port Hercule between 26th and 29th September where they will be greeted by 125 stunning superyachts and luxury tenders and over 580 exhibitors being showcased.
A must-attend event for all private yacht owners, prospective buyers and decision makers from leading companies in the yachting and luxury asset sectors, we will this year be represented by Director, John Byrne; Head of Business Development, Sam Snow; Head of Marketing, Lesley-Anne Walker; Client Services Manager, Sharon Mellor and Client Services Administrator, Tom Corlett.
We are also proud to be a stand partner to the Isle of Man Ship Registry again this year and will be available 11am – 12pm on Friday 28th September at QS42 in the Darse Sud tent for those wishing to discuss any specific requirements or ask any questions surrounding yacht ownership, registration and management.
Head of Marketing, Lesley Walker said: “The Monaco Yacht Show is a great platform for doing business and sharing information and insights. It is the show of all shows in the yachting industry and brings an array of likeminded professionals and suppliers from across the globe within the sector, to one ideal location. We are looking forward to another busy and successful show this year and to meeting with contacts old and new!”
As one of the longest established trust and corporate services providers in the Isle of Man, we offer complete in-house expertise as well as specialist knowledge and experience within a number of niche industry sectors, including the provision of bespoke ownership structures for a range of luxury assets such as private and commercial yachts, private jets and helicopters.
Leading the team in Monaco this year, Director, John Byrne, has a wealth of experience having been involved in the offshore financial services industry in various roles since 1990. Commenting on the upcoming event, he said: “We have a great team attending Monaco this year, all of whom will be actively meeting with owners and their representatives at the show as well as attending a number of networking events. Each of our team members brings with them valuable expertise and experience of the industry.”
Head of Business Development, Sam Snow, has a long history and experience of working in the aviation, yachting and financial services industry. She has significant knowledge of indirect tax matters and is well versed in private yacht transactions and establishing and managing bespoke ownership structures for luxury assets, including in more recently times, utilising blockchain and DLT technology.
Head of Marketing, Lesley, has over 10 years marketing experience within the financial services sector, the majority of which has been spent with a heavy focus on the luxury asset markets such as yachting, aviation and real estate. She is also heavily involved with and sits on the Executive Committees of the Isle of Man SuperYacht Forum and the newly formed Isle of Man Maritime – a not for profit organisation, which was formed to develop, support and promote the Isle of Man’s growing maritime sector.
With a career spanning over 22 years in the Offshore industry and having been with the Company for over 10 years, Sharon has invaluable experience and has developed very close relationships with some of our biggest clients and currently sits on the board of a number of client Companies.
Last but not least, the newest member to join the team originally began his career in Financial Services working for a leading Private Wealth bank. Tom provides integral support to our Client Services team and subsequently to its ever growing client base.
The Team will be available throughout the duration of the show, and will be on hand to discuss the opportunities and benefits of maritime jurisdictions such as the Isle of Man and Malta in the structuring of yacht ownership. They will also be promoting their full range of yacht services.
