Annual Report on Economic Impact of Chartering in the Balearics by AEGY (March 23, 2018)

pablopeiro : marzo 23, 2018 5:26 pm : News

Produced by the Spanish Large Yacht Association – Asociación Española de Grandes Yates (AEGY)
In October 2013 the Spanish government made an amendment to the infamous “matriculation tax” which had prevented many superyachts from registering to charter in Spain.
This change in legislation came about as a direct result of many years of lobbying by the various Spanish nautical Associations. The Associations collectively argued that more revenue could be brought into Spain from the yachting sector by eliminating this tax. Four years after the tax was modified this argument has been proven conclusively.
Since 2013 the AEGY has produced an annual report on the state of the charter market in the Balearics. The results for 2017 were presented at the recent ANEN (Asociación National de Empresas Nauticas) Conference in Palma which brought together professionals from the yachting sector from the whole of Spain.
The report was compiled by Anne Sterringa, Senior Charter Broker for Campers and Nicholson Spain and a member of the AEGY Board. Key facts from the report show the dramatic changes from 2013 to 2017*:
• The total number yachts that have obtained a licence to charter in the Balearics has risen from 31 to 170.
• The total revenue from charters has risen from €4.442 million to €47.186 million, an increase of 962%.
• The amount spent by yachts chartering on fuel, berths, beverages and food has risen from €991.000 to €11.522 million, an increase of 1062%.
• The total amount of IVA collected on charter fees and other costs has risen from €1.179 million to €12.265 million, an increase of 940%.
“These extraordinary results clearly demonstrate that the matriculation tax was holding back the growth of the superyacht activity in the Balearics,” commented Sterringa. “However, the figures only show the economic impact of chartering; we also need to factor in the impact of these yachts choosing to stay in the Balearics and Spain to carry out essential repair and refit work in the winter.”
Some years ago, superyachts were very wary of visiting Spain due to a lack of clarity surrounding fiscal regulations and the matriculation tax. There has clearly been a sea change of opinion in the yachting community as six of the eight largest companies in the world dedicated to luxury yachting now have offices in Mallorca.
Diego Colon, President of the AEGY summed up the current situation: “Spain is open for business. These results clearly show the Balearics have such a lot to offer to charter guests. We are also in the fortunate position of offering an unrivalled repair and refit infrastructure for these same yachts in the winter.”
About the AEGY
The Asociación Española de Grandes Yates was established to represent the needs of companies in the superyacht sector in Spain. It has successfully lobbied to promote the sector by educating and informing politicians, government ministers and public bodies. Its members include all the major superyacht businesses in Spain.

Beagle Star V signs up for Inmarsat’s new fully flexible Fleet Xpress plan for superyachts (November 3, 2017)

pablopeiro : noviembre 3, 2017 10:09 am : News

Inmarsat (LSE:ISAT.L) has launched a new and flexible Fleet Xpress plan for superyachts to address the seasonal luxury market, and through its partner e3 Systems has signed up the first superyacht Beagle Star V, a luxury sail yacht, to the plan.
The award-winning Fleet Xpress service has become the fastest growing VSAT service in 2017 dominating the commercial shipping market. With additional flexibility being a key demand for the superyacht industry, where voice and video calls, entertainment and social media can vary widely during the season, Inmarsat has developed a new flexible plan for Fleet Xpress to specifically meet the demands of this market.
Under the plan, owners can upgrade or downgrade their usage quickly factoring in temporary standby and even taking advantage of up to six months of service standby without seeking a contract extension.
Erik Nieuwmeijer Group Sales Director of e3 Systems comments “Superyacht Beagle Star V is the first vessel to take advantage of this new flexible plan. The owner decided to go ahead based on the unrivalled global coverage provided by Fleet Xpress, combined with seasonal flexibility of the plan. We are very pleased to have the first contract for this new plan”
Gert-Jan Panken, VP Sales, Inmarsat Maritime said: “The superyacht market has distinct satcoms need due to its seasonal nature, where owners need the freedom to adjust subscription plans and consume high bandwidth in peak periods then switch to standby in the off-season. Fleet Xpress is a proven global service delivering continuous connectivity and guaranteed performance, freeing the vessel from any limitation to regional coverage or constraints of local terrestrial coverage. In addition Fleet Xpress separates customer data and voice calls, so a customer’s data subscription is not affected by the voice calls made. We’re excited to bring a new level of connectivity and flexibility to the superyacht market,” concludes Panken.

e3 and Kymeta awarded the International Superyacht Society Award for Excellence in Innovation 2017 (November 2, 2017)

pablopeiro : noviembre 2, 2017 11:05 am : News

Palma-based e3 Systems and Kymeta – the company delivering on the promise of global, mobile connectivity – are proud to announce that they have been awarded the International Superyacht Society Award for Excellence in Innovation
In early 2017, Kymeta released the world’s only commercially viable electronically scanning flat satellite antennas and terminals, and is now offering the technology for use on superyachts. e3, Kymeta’s exclusive superyacht distribution partner, has been instrumental in bringing the new technology to the superyacht market, having worked with Kymeta for the last four years.
Given to an individual or business that has demonstrated innovation in their endeavours within the previous year, the award was presented to Roger Horner, Managing Director, e3 and Håkan Olsson, Vice President of Maritime, Kymeta, at the ISS Gala Dinner 2017 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Fort Lauderdale,
“It is a real honour to receive this award from the ISS and I’d like to thank everyone at e3, Kymeta and our partners for all their hard work,`’ said Horner. “I’d also like to offer our gratitude to the owner and crew of the M/Y White Rose of Drachs and S/Y Maltese Falcon for their part in the successful sea trials which have been fundamental in bringing this game-changing technology to market and ensuring that reliable, ubiquitous, mobile connectivity on the water is now a reality.”
This timely award arrives as e3 and Kymeta are jointly showcasing the Kymeta™ flat panel antennas at FLIBS following a fantastic response to the innovative technology at the Monaco Yacht Show earlier in the year. VIPs will once again have the opportunity to see working single panel installations onboard a moving yacht – all made possible by the hard work and professionalism of captains, crew and everyone at Fleet Miami.
“FLIBS 17 heralds a new era of mobile connectivity for the superyacht sector,” said Olsson. “Commercially available to superyachts for the first time, our award-winning antennas and terminals will be bundled with Kymeta’s KĀLO™ internet access services. This first-of-a-kind technology is redefining connectivity on the water and over the coming months we shall see a rapidly increasing number of yachts opting to go domeless.”

e3 Systems announces partnership with G3 – leading cyber security practice (October 16, 2017)

pablopeiro : octubre 16, 2017 10:41 am : News

Increased connectivity for superyachts brings with it increased security risks. Over the past 12 months the yachting world has been increasingly targeted by cyber criminals, ensuring that the highest levels of protection are fundamental to the security of corporate data, bank accounts and personal details while at sea or in port.
Global superyacht communications provider, e3 Systems has therefore partnered with G3, a specialist cyber security practice with in-depth expertise of advising shipyards, management companies, captains and owners. The partnership offers a range of security solutions for both existing and new customers. All e3 networks will now be configured for maximum security at installation while existing networks will be offered security enhancements by G3.
The new partnership will also offer a combined IT and Security Monitoring Service which allows 24/7 network monitoring to enable threats to be detected and managed in real time. Essential face-to-face or online cyber security training for crew will also be available.
Malcolm Taylor, Head of Cyber Security at G3, said: “e3 share our vision for a secure maritime future. Networks need to be secured as soon as they are installed, as this not only significantly lowers risk for the client but also makes economic sense. And because crew behaviour plays such an important part in the security of the yacht, it is also the ideal time to provide comprehensive cyber security training. This partnership offers clients the complete solution.”
Roger Horner, Group Managing Director, e3, said: “The IMO has recently approved draft guidelines to include Cyber Security risk management within the ISPS and ISM Codes – both of which apply to all commercial yachts over 500 GRT. The need for compliance, combined with a commitment to protecting privacy has created an urgent requirement for security expertise. Led by former members of British intelligence and experienced cyber security professionals, G3 is undoubtedly the best in the field and we look forward to working with them closely.”
