  • The status of diversity and inclusion in yachting

    ​ The status of diversity and inclusion in yachting To All news 25 March 2021 The superyacht industry has been paying closer attention to diversity and inclusion, with a focus on equality and creating a more sustainable industry. We see roles such as 'chief diversity officer' or 'diversity and inclusion manager” in luxury retail, healthcare, private aviation or sport, yet few articles have reported about navigating the barriers and successes of building diversity and inclusion strategies into yachting companies. Diversity includes but isn’t limited to age, disability, gender, race, religion or faith, sexual orientation, pregnancy and parental considerations, marriage and civil partnership or social status. Inclusivity is ensuring your employees feel accepted, valued and at ease to share their ideas and perspectives. For present purposes, diversity is the ‘what’ and inclusion is the ‘how’. Corporate benefits of diversity and inclusion strategies include improved workplace culture, a wider talent pool and social cohesion that facilitates better communication, creativity and innovation. According to a recent Facebook report of 1200 consumers, 71 per cent of respondents expect brands to promote diversity and inclusion in their online advertising and 59 per cent said they prefer to buy from brands that “stand for diversity and inclusion” in their ads. Shifts in global sentiment will leave a mark on brand longevity and customer engagement. Isn’t it high time to uncover diversity and inclusion in the yachting industry and have honest discussions about something that impacts all of us? Continue reading here .

  • PYA CEO to Moderate “Environment and Sustainability” Panel at Superyacht Conference in Monaco on 27 June

    ​ PYA CEO to Moderate “Environment and Sustainability” Panel at Superyacht Conference in Monaco on 27 June To All news 17 May 2024 Christophe Bourillon, the CEO of the Professional Yachting Association (PYA) will be moderating a panel on “Environment and Sustainability” at the upcoming NextGen Owner: Managing Tomorrow's Superyacht conference, to be held in Monaco on 27th June 2024. The event will bring together industry leaders and experts to discuss the future of superyacht ownership. A Focus on Sustainability with Fresh Perspectives The panel will delve into the critical topic of environmental responsibility within the superyacht industry. Recognizing the need for a broader perspective, the panel will feature a sustainable development expert from outside the yachting industry , fostering a fresh exchange of ideas. This commitment to fresh voices reflects PYA's belief that true progress requires collaboration beyond traditional industry circles. Sustainable development strategies and reporting are very codified, very much like financial reporting. Undertaken with due consideration to all external requirements and expectations, “Sustainability” is an important pillar for the future of the superyacht industry. Christophe’s analysis of the future of the superyacht industry and its implementation of sustainable development activities, were published in a two-part article by Superyacht News (links below).

  • UPDATE - Installation of Mooring Buoys

    ​ UPDATE - Installation of Mooring Buoys To All news 9 August 2022 Four buoys are now operational in Cannes and Antibes and available to book through the DONIA App. The Donia Mooring boxes are designed to support 10 tons of forces (the tension exerted by a 70m yacht undergoing a 50km/h wind). The anchoring system is composed of a metallic frame fixed on the bottom. This new device avoids the immersion of concrete blocks and limits the impact on the bottom. They are located: • Buoy N°1 - NW of Sainte-Marguerite island under the Royal Fort • Buoy N°2 - SW of Sainte-Marguerite island in front of the “Pointe du Dragon ” • Buoys N°3 and N°4 are located in the Gulf of Juan The installation of 11 mooring buoys is still planned for the near future. These buoys will be located mainly in the bay of Eze/Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Golfe-Juan. These buoy systems can be booked directly on the Donia application. The booking procedure can be seen here .

  • RYA reveals latest first aid advisory for yacht crew

    ​ RYA reveals latest first aid advisory for yacht crew To All news 6 October 2023 The RYA has updated its latest guidance on preparing first aid at sea, a vital skill that every seafarer should seek to acquire at any stage of their career. First aid can become vital in an unexpected situation either on land or onboard a vessel out at sea. This can also be the case in circumstances where another ship may be in distress. Crew members and guests can become unwell despite good sea conditions and first aid can help to manage minor to major incidents. Proper first aid can also prevent medical emergencies in the case of injuries and other unforeseen circumstances. “Most first aid on a boat requires nothing more than people do every day looking after their family. But accidents do happen and knowing what to do first can be very important. This is where some first aid knowledge can help,” said RYA National First Aid Advisor and Yachtmaster Examiner, Sara Hopkinson. Among Sara’s top tips for staying safe at sea include: Having both land and sea first aid knowledge to learn how to adapt to situations such as head injuries, water shock, hypothermia and drowning. Packing a first aid kit and having the correct items from bandages to pain relief and motion sickness tablets. Calling for help in an emergency with a handheld VHF radio for out-of-range areas. Being aware of cold-water shock and how to manage an emergency situation. Taking action in an emergency situation when it is better to do something rather than observe. The impact first aid can have in saving lives and providing care to people suffering at sea where there is no immediate access to medical facilities. To learn more about first aid, explore the RYA’s guidance that goes more in-depth on the topic and how seafarers can best prepare.

    © Chris Gouvernelle PYA Welfare Group to launch new webinar on crew rights and wellbeing To All news 23 October 2023 The PYA Welfare Group will chair a new webinar on crew rights and wellbeing, bringing together experts from key Flag states to discuss important issues affecting seafarers globally. The latest webinar follows a series of discussions in the past year including a forum held by the PYA Welfare Group with key Flag states that covered how to deal with bullying, harassment and other workplace issues.

The following guests will attend: Guest speakers Ivan Tabone - Deputy Chief Officer at the Merchant Shipping Directorate at Transport Malta Authority Martyn Oates - Technical Policy Manager, Isle of Man Ship Registry Holly Griffin - Seafarer Living and Working Conditions Policy Manager, UK Maritime and - Coastguard Agency James Hatcher - Senior Maritime Policy Adviser and Shipping Master, Cayman Islands Shipping Registry Alexander von Stein - Advisor / Special Agent / Certified Trainer of trainers and maritime inspectors MLC 2006, Marshall Islands Registry France representative (DIRM MED/RIF) - To be confirmed To take part in this webinar, you can reserve your place by booking via our event page .
