Establishment Of The  Superyacht Alliance For Professional Standards

On October 19th, the Superyacht Alliance for Professional Standards was established in Malta by the founding members MYBA, SYBAss and IAMI, in the presence of Hon. Minister Dr Aaron Farrugia, Malta’s Minister for Transport.  This new organisation will initiate new qualification programs for professionals in the superyacht industry, such as the Yacht Owners Representative Programme but it will also promote existing ones like the GUEST hospitality programmes.  The primary aim and objective of the Alliance is to align associations throughout the superyacht industry in their effort to raise the bar for professionalism. It will also ensure that more visibility and awareness is created about exisiting job opportunities.
The Hon. Minister welcomed this historic achievement and congratulated the founding associations for their commitment towards a more environmentally sound and sustainable industry. He also reiterated Malta’s commitment towards to success of the alliance and reassured the alliance that Malta will remain steadfast in its policy to further consolidate the quality mark in this important industry. This alliance is yet more evidence that Malta remains one of the main jurisdictions in the superyacht industry and this will be further reinforced with the publication of the first ever national vision for the superyacht industry.   In the photo (from left to right, from back to front): Hon.
