Italy proposes new Berthing Tax ( 21 December 2011)

As part of its attempt to get to grips with it debt crisis, Italy’s government has proposed the introduction of a new Berthing Tax.

Under the scheme — which would begin in May 2012 — all craft over 5m (16ft) would be taxed on a daily basis if they decide to moor up inside a harbour — or anchor off outside a harbour.

Those over 24m (78ft) would be taxed at a rate of €90 per day (€32,850 per year), while craft in excess of 54m (177ft) would have to pay €190,165 per year.

All superyachts in excess of 64m (210ft) would need to pay €256,595 per year. (Superyachts Business, 21 December 2011)
