Over 160 participants attended the Italian stage of the 16th Azimut Benetti Yachtmaster event, held from 3 to 6 february at the Tombolo Talasso Resort in Tuscany. The event was the second in a series of three (the first having taken place in Asia in November 2015) Yachtmaster conferences with the aim to increase the company and its partner’s communication on a global scale.
Dynamic workshops were presented where participants could learn more about industry-relevant subjects. Coordinated and paneled by experts, the groups of participants were able to participate in rotation in all the different workshops. The four themes dealt with the fundamental issues of insurance, taxes, new environmental protection standards and new challenges in crew management. Benetti yacht captains were also interviewed, illustrating their experience in the various discussions.
Alex Chumillas, managing director of Tax Marine Spain participated in the workshops organized during the event about EU tax and legal issues, together with other well-known professionals of the industry providing a global picture of the regulation for super yachts in the Med.
