The Yacht Team of International Registries, Inc. and its affiliates (IRI) greeted yacht owners and enthusiasts from around the world at the 2021 Monaco Yacht Show. Team members from Roosendaal, Geneva, and New York met together in Monaco for the first time since the pandemic began.
“The energy of this year’s Monaco Yacht Show underscores the eagerness of the yacht market to move past the challenges of the pandemic and focus on innovative design and future-forward yachting,” said IRI’s Patrick Bachofner, Director, Geneva Office and Worldwide Director, Yachts.
RMI flagged yachts on display at the show included the 85 meter (m) BOLD, built by Australian yacht builder SilverYachts, with its unique glass-enclosed upper deck loft; the 108 m Benetti, IJE, the largest yacht in this year’s show; and one of the most talked about yachts this year, the award winning 80 m Nobiskrug, ARTEFACT.
“The RMI yacht fleet continues to grow, and we’re proud to have some of the world’s most innovative and unique yachts choose the Marshall Islands flag,” commented Marc Verburg, Fleet Operations Manager, Yachts from IRI’s Roosendaal office.
“Our technical expertise, safety record, and focus on protecting the marine environment through innovative solutions provides yacht owners with the support they want as they push the boundaries of what is possible with design and technology.”
IRI/The Marshall Islands Registry kicked off the show by sponsoring the Marine Money Superyacht Finance Forum at an outdoor reception, which brought together key individuals and leaders in the yacht financing and insurance industries. Later in the show, Marc Verburg joined a panel discussion on “Regulations, fiscal and legal issues” at the Mare Forum event. “The show was a tremendous success for our team and the attendees at the show this year. We are grateful for the opportunity to meet in person and discuss the state of industry today. We look forward to future in person events,” concluded Patrick Bachofner.
