Group member celebrates recent successes
Thursday, January 22, 2015
Isle of Man Maritime Group member the Isle of Man Ship Registry has announced an overview of it successes from the past year.
The Isle of Man Ship Registry registered over 100 ships and superyachts during 2014 and 15.7 million gross registered tons at the close of the year. The recent statistics means that they now hold the thirteenth position in the table of world registers by tonnage.
The registry was also pleased to announce that all targets were hit for compliance with the Maritime Labour Convention, with the introduction of a brand new statutory instrument to enact this important Convention and every ship being inspected and certified by the due date.
The registry's presence at the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show was also a success and coincided with the resolution of recent problems relating to yacht charter from the Balearic Islands.
Non-EU flags are now accepted for charters which resulted in many yachts returning to register with the Isle of Man to enjoy all the benefits of Manx registration as well as taking advantage of Mediterranean charters.
In terms of quality the Isle of Man Ship Registry is expected to hit the three key targets of Paris and Tokyo MOU Whitelists plus USCG Qualship 21 when the lists are published in 2015. Their internal operating systems were also once again renewed to ISO 9001:2008 and the registry is looking at implementation of the environmental standard 14001 for 2015.
