New PYA Partner - Aquator Marine
Aquator Marine was founded based on the belief that the power of yacht management software is becoming increasingly more essential. Its mission is to revolutionize the way people manage their yachts in a safer, more cost-effective and interactive way.
New PYA Partner – MaritimeMT
MaritimeMT opened in 2010 initially to provide training to the Malta Maritime Pilots and in 2015 the Training Centre started offering its services to all seafarers and shore-based personnel.
The Flag State and the Seafarer
For those of you that have been in yachting for a while, you’ll know all about the flag states. But for those that need an introduction, this is essentially the ‘nationality’ of the yacht. For example, if it is registered in the Isle of Man, the yacht will be governed by the laws of the Isle of Man, so as you can imagine, it’s a relatively important decision for the owner to make, not to mention the fiscal implications of the country that they choose.
