The Manx Ship Registry will be launching a new service for yacht owners at this year's Monaco Yacht Show, to be held in late September.
Its "Pleasure Yacht Plus service" offers enhanced surveys and third-party oversight for large pleasure yachts registered with the island's Ship Registry.
Dick Welsh, Director of the Isle of Man Ship Registry, said: "The Isle of Man Ship Registry is continually evolving to meet owners' wishes for the enhancement of safety and the promotion of excellence on board. As a globally respected flag of quality, we are seeing a growing number of ship owners registering large superyachts for personal use but with the crew and capacity, and hence the risk profile, of a commercial vessel. The Pleasure Yacht Plus service provides a bespoke survey regime aimed at confirming voluntary compliance with internationally recognized codes of safety."
