Home, Sweet Home

M/y home  is the world's first fast displacement yacht by heesen with a hybrid propulsion. the yacht is also known as project nova and yn 17859..

HOME  is a full aluminum yacht under 500 GT and measures 50m in length. She has a transatlantic range of 3,750 nautical miles at a speed of 12 knots. Her twin  MTU 12V with 600 kW each power her up to 16.3 knots. Her two 127 kW electric engines offer a speed of 9 knots just using generators with less noise and vibrating.

The yacht features – like many other successful Heesen yachts – the  Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) by Dutch naval architects Van Oossanen. The exterior design was created by Omega Architects .

Home Yacht Heesen

During her sea trials, HOME reached the contractual speed of 16.3 with the traditional diesel engines and 9 knots in hybrid mode. Also, the noise and vibrations levels are under the contracted goals.

Furthermore, the yacht showed her efficiency. At 12 knots she consumes 98 liters per hour of diesel. That can be reduced to 45 liters per hour in the hybrid mode with a speed of 10 knots. Announced was a range of 3,750 nautical miles at 12 knots. Heesen corrected this number up to 4,250 nm.

HOME Interior

The owner assigned Cristiano Gatto to design the sophisticated linear interior. The full-beam owner suite (forward on the main deck) features floor-to-ceiling windows and a private study.

Guests cabins can be found on the lower deck amidships. There are  two doubles, two twins, and one full-beam VIP suite. The crew area with mess and cabins is forward located. On the lower deck is also the Gym and SPA. This area is also directly connected to the main deck through an extra staircase.

Yes, You Can Really Charter Below Deck Med ’s New Superyacht, Home

Renting or buying Season 7’s new vessel won’t come cheap though.

"Home", the new yacht from 'Below Deck: Mediterranean' is available to rent or buy.

When Captain Sandy Yawn and her all-new crew set sail on Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7, they’ll be in uncharted territory aboard a new superyacht, Home . While cruising the pristine waters of Malta, Captain Sandy was working for the first time on the 163-foot motor yacht, which Bravo described as a “complex hybrid vessel” that the Below Deck Med vet found to be “more unpredictable to navigate.” As the show’s Season 7 trailer previewed, Home won’t make it through the charters entirely unscathed either: In one clip, Captain Sandy laments that she hit something for the first time in her career, while another scene teases a potential “crashing” incident.

Rest assured that there weren’t any serious accidents because Home is currently available for charter in the Caribbean region at a cost ranging from $245,000 to $273,000 per week , depending on the season. Meanwhile, Home — the first diesel-electric motor yacht to appear on Below Deck — is also listed for sale with an asking price of just over $30.8 million. Per the listings, the superyacht, which Dutch shipyard Heesen built in 2017, sleeps up to 12 guests in six cabins and features contemporary, “Ibiza-style” decor. Among Home ’s many amenities are a large sun deck, jacuzzi, swim platform, air-conditioned gym, and sky lounge.

Home also sleeps up to 10 crew members. In Below Deck Med Season 7 , that includes Captain Sandy, returning Season 6 deckhand Mzi “Zee” Dempers, and newcomers: chief stew Natasha Webb, chef Dave White, bosun Raygan Tyler, stews Natalya Scudder and Kyle Viljoen, and deckhands Storm Smith and Jason Gaskell. Following her involvement in Hannah Ferrier’s mid-Season 5 firing, Malia White cited a scooter accident and pending exams — not fan backlash — as her reasons for not returning for Season 7. (“It’s not that I might never come back to the show,” Malia told Showbiz Cheat Sheet in May. “I’m just not on the next season.”)

Season 7’s “new boat with new department heads” might bring Captain Sandy some challenges during her “first time ever in Malta,” but she’s naturally ready to face them all head-on. The network also told viewers to expect “outrageous costumes, wild nights out, and some major inter-departmental drama,” which “doesn’t even cover what the charter guests are going to bring in the new season.”

As always, expect plenty of romance at sea, too. As Bravo’s first look teased, “boatmances” will be a major topic of conversation this season, including flirtations between Natalya and Storm, as well as several questions about the true nature of Natasha and Dave’s relationship. There could even be a fling between a crew member and a charter guest, too. Though Bravo is premiering the series on July 11, Peacock subscribers can access new Below Deck Med Season 7 episodes a week early beginning July 4.

Fans can also experience Home for themselves off-screen — but it will cost way more than their monthly cable bills.

The World private residence yacht in Bonifacio

The World: Largest private residential yacht resumes sailing

The 196 metre superyacht The World , which carries the title of the largest privately-owned residential yacht on earth , will recommence sailing in July 2021, it has been announced.

The World is a multi-deck motor yacht which offers 165 luxury residences with an ever-changing view and high-end service. Amenities on board including six different restaurants, sport and fitness facilities, swimming pools, a library and a cinema.

  • Are private residence yachts set to be the next big thing?

In 2020, The World stopped sailing on account of travel restrictions . Now, however, the 150 families with residences on board can return home as a result of its “COVIDSHIELD ” program, which has ensured all residents and crew are fully vaccinated and has introduced new health and safety measures on board to support the wellbeing of its inhabitants.

The World’s chief executive, Pamela Conover, confirmed that, “after more than a year” the superyacht would be “setting sail again.”

“It’s been a difficult 16 months for our residents who have been missing their home at sea. They have been incredibly supportive of the operation while the ship was in warm lay-up and especially of our crew, who are like extended family members. We are all anxious for the ship’s return and are enthusiastically preparing to welcome our residents back home this summer," she said. 

The World will set sail from Piraeus in southern Greece and is set to have a packed sailing schedule over for the rest of the year. She will spend the summer cruising the Mediterranean , visiting Greece’s sun-drenched islands before stopping over in Cyprus, Croatia, Italy, France and Spain to visit the countries’ ancient cities and scenic beaches.

By autumn, The World will close up her Mediterranean season with one last stop in the picturesque port of Funchal in Portugal’s Madeira Islands before beginning a transatlantic crossing to the Caribbean .

Residents on board The World will then spend the latter part of the year taking in the sights of Bermuda, The Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands, the Leeward Islands, the Dominican Republic, and the Cayman Islands.

For the rest of 2021, The World will cruise the coasts of south and central America , discovering the cultures and cuisines of Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Panama and Guatemala.

When at sea, The World ’s residents will have plenty to keep themselves entertained on board with an activities program including lectures from Nobel prize winners, scuba diving expeditions, golf and tennis tournaments held on the superyacht’s facilities and spa treatments at The World ’s wellness centre.

Although The World has carried the title of the largest privately-owned residential yacht since first welcoming residents 17 years ago, she is destined to be usurped when 200+ metre Njord is launched in 2024.

HOME: A 50-METRE HYBRID-POWERED YACHT WITH ITALIAN DESIGN

Minimal Logo

She’s called Home and, according to her manufacturer, the Dutch Heensen Yachts boatyard, she is the first large yacht equipped with hybrid propulsion. 50 metres long, this new creation features aluminium hull and very luxury interiors designed by Cristano Gatto Design’s team . The megayacht was delivered to her owner last week during a ceremony which couldn’t fail to be lavish.

Luxury and high-quality construction qualities aside, what is most interesting is that Home is equipped with two 127 kW electric engines which allow for silent cruising at up to 9 knots. In addition to these two electric engines, the yacht also has two traditional MTU 12 V 600 engines . The two types of propulsion systems can be used simultaneously or independently.

Heensen Yachts Home ibrido

And if the exclusive elegant exterior design , characterized by a large superstructure featuring a large use of glass and an impressive central staircase developing from the aft platform to the main deck, is by the Dutch Omega Architects studio, everything concerning interiors speaks Italian.

Heensen Yachts Home ibrido

The crown jewel of interiors is undoubtedly the owner’s apartment , which includes a private studio, a room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and, of course, an en-suite bathroom equipped with shower stall.

Heesen-motor yacht Home - interior

Guests are accommodated in two cabins with double beds, two cabins with twin beds and a full-beam VIP cabin with the same size than the owner’s one.

Undeniable is the beauty of the main deck, where external teak flooring continues inside to create a sense of continuity  while huge floor-to-ceiling windows give a breath-taking view over the sea.

The wellness area, equipped with gym and spa , is located on the lower deck next to the engine room and has a comfortable direct access to the main deck through an internal staircase.

For the moment, Home will remain in the harbour of Oss , Holland, for the activation of her complex steering systems. Then, she will move to Rotterdam, where she will undergo a series of sea trials before the official delivery to her owner next June.

Superyacht Glossary: Terms You Will Need To Know

Are you starting a yachting career but not from a boating background? Then, it’s time to get across the superyacht jargon to feel well-versed on your first boat or day working experience. Here’s a glossary of terms about your new workplace.

yacht called home

The Basics: Navigating Your Way Around the Boat

Bow : Front of the boat. (Pointy end.)

Stern : Back of the boat. (Blunt bit.)

Foredeck . Forward deck.

Aft deck : Rear deck.

Midships : The halfway point between bow and stern. Also, amidships. 

Port : Left-hand side of the boat (when facing the bow).

Starboard : Right-hand side of the boat (when facing the bow).

Quarter : A yacht can be divided into quarters, and this can help a captain direct their crew where to go on deck. Port Bow and Starboard Bow cover the two areas from midships up to the bow. Port Quarter and Starboard Quarter cover the areas running aft from midships to the stern.

Beam : Width of the yacht at its widest point.

Draft/draught : Depth of the yacht under the waterline.

Hull : The ’base’ of the boat. Everything from the main decking down.

Superstructure : Everything built on top of the hull. (Upper decks)

Bridge/Wheelhouse : Where the captain drives the boat. An interior space on an upper deck with good visibility across the front of the yacht to sea.

Flybridge : A secondary exterior helm station where the captain drives the boat from the yacht’s top deck. The flybridge is outdoors and offers almost 360-degree visibility.

Cockpit : An area on deck where the captain drives the boat (sailboat). Also, often a seating/dining area.

Helm : The yacht wheel and steering system. One can ’stand at the helm’, ’go to the helm’ or even ’helm the boat’.

Galley : Where the magic happens. (Never call it a kitchen!)

Forepeak : A compartment/large locker or cabin located up in the nose of the boat, under the foredeck. On small sailing boats, the crew may live in the forepeak cabin.

Swim platform : A platform at the back of the boat, off the aft deck, for swimming and launching the water toys.

Transom : The vertical span across the stern where the boat’s name is written.

Passerelle : The gangplank! There’s nothing like walking across a superyacht passerelle for the first time. (Remember, never step on the passerelle with your shoes on).

Lazarette : Storage in the boat’s stern, under the aft deck area, is generally where the water toys are stored.

Main Salon : The formal lounge space on the main deck. Adjoins typically the formal dining room, often as an open-plan space.

Sky Lounge : Upper salon. A comfortable lounge space, generally with a large-screen TV, card/occasional tables and possibly a piano.

Sundeck : Top deck of a motor yacht, where you’ll find sunbeds, BBQ, a bar, a dining table, and a Jacuzzi.

Stateroom : Cabin. Across the industry, superyacht cabins are increasingly called staterooms or suites on larger yachts. However, in practice, crew generally continue to call them cabins —or they cut off the word altogether, instead saying ’clean the master/VIP/starboard forward’ etc.

Head and Day head :   In sailor-speak, a ’head’ is a boat toilet. On superyachts, it’s relatively uncommon to call a bathroom a head, except in one crucial leftover case: the day head. This small toilet/washroom is one that guests will use when they want to avoid going back to their cabin to use the bathroom. On superyachts, they are located on the main and upper decks and occasionally on the sundeck.

Note that you’ll still hear some crew say, ’I’m going to use the head’ instead of ’I’m going to the toilet/bathroom’ because the word ’head’ is much more common on sailboats than motor yachts.

yacht called home

Lines and Equipment

Bow Line/Aft Line : The rope tied from the bow/aft to the dock stops the vessel from moving when in its berth. 

Spring Line : A line tied diagonally from the bow or stern to a point on the dock to stop the yacht from moving forwards or backwards. 

Cleat : A piece of stainless steel fixed to the deck or capping rails that lines are tied to.

Bulwark : The sides of a motor yacht that rise up from the deck. (The outside bit that stops you from falling off).

Capping rail : The rail on top of the bulwark, which is usually varnished to a high gloss.

Fender : The strong rubber ’balloons’ suspended over the sides of the yacht to protect the paintwork when the yacht is docked or manoeuvring in or out of berths.

Stabiliser : Underwater systems to reduce the yacht rolling at sea. Zero-speed stabilisers are stabilisers that work both at anchor and underway.

Tender : A small boat used to ferry guests ashore, get supplies, take rubbish in etc. There’s a vast range of tenders, including high-speed and limousine tenders, which are covered tenders that protect the guests from wind and sea spray.

Rescue tender : A rescue tender is a tender over 3.8m that is classed as one of the yacht’s vessels for rescue operations under SOLAS guidelines. It has certain safety specifications but can also be used for everyday boat operations, just like a standard tender, so you’ll often hear the captain say, ’Take the rescue tender’.

Other Yachting Terms You’ll Need To Know

An APA is a sum, usually 25-35% of the charter fee, that the charterer will pay in advance so that the yacht crew can stock the yacht with food, drink, and fuel and have money in the kitty for things like berthing fees. Any unused money at the end of the trip is returned to the charterer.

Bimini : A shade awning.

Bulkheads : The yacht’s internal walls and watertight compartments.

Ensign : The yacht’s flag, indicating which country it is registered in. Note that yachts are only sometimes registered in the nationality of the people that own them. And also that a yacht is legally considered a tiny, floating part of the country whose flag it flies and therefore operates under its laws and jurisdiction.

Knot : A measure of speed used on boats equal to one nautical mile (1.8km/hr).

Nautical Mile : Different from land miles! A nautical mile (1852m) is longer than a land mile (1609m).

Preference sheet : The form a charterer fills out to inform the yacht’s crew of their preferences regarding food, drink, activities etc. This preference sheet is given to the senior crew before the charter so the captain, chef, and chief stew can prepare the yacht for the charter.

Pullman : A pull-down berth to add an extra bed. These pull-down wall-mounted bunks are usually found in twin cabins for a third bed.

Phew! See? You’re already an expert :)

Where Will This Vessel Call Home?

Where will this vessel call home .

Every person who owns a boat, yacht, or ship must, upon taking ownership, decide how he or she will answer this question of ‘where will the vessel call home?’.

Maritime lawyers refer to this as choosing the vessel’s flag or country of registration.  

Frequently and depending upon the jurisdiction, there may also be subdivisions such as states or provinces within a given flag country, which have registration or licensing rules of their own that can overlap or add to those of the country within which it is located.

The idea of a vessel home flag is driven by a concept in maritime law known as in rem . 

A vessel is considered, under most legal regimes, as an entity or thing apart from its owner-- based on historical views of it being a construct unto itself and able to move, operate, and do business around the world’s oceans independently.

It is therefore allowed to claim it’s country or place of ‘home’ independently from the location, citizenship, or residence of its owner or controlling owners.

Owners of both large and small recreational vessels such as rowboats, small outboards or sailing boats, power yachts, and large recreation vessels of all kinds come to discover that their vessel (with few exceptions) is required in most developed jurisdictions under applicable law to have some form of registration and will incur licensing costs.

Such laws are common in the US, Canada, UK, EU, and in many other countries around the world, particularly in the advanced trading nations, and their subdivisions, who view registration/ licensing regimes as necessary to aid in the regulation of Waterway/seagoing traffic and commerce, safe operation of ships at sea and to provide for a healthy/ safe environment for mariners and for the world’s oceans. 

It is also, of course, a process which allows these jurisdictions to exercise their powers of taxation, by imposing fees and tariffs as part of these registration processes.

Making sense of this morass of rules and regulations at the state, national, and international levels, and keeping abreast of continual change is not a small task.

Let me start by saying that in light of its complexity, I will deal here only with some of the more important considerations in a very general fashion. Owners are encouraged to seek suitable advice from experienced yacht brokers, yacht managers, and maritime law attorneys for the most accurate, up to date advice.

Small Recreational Boat Owners  

Fortunately for most owners in this category, the answer is relatively simple.

The owner of a small sail or power vessel, kept at or near the owner’s residence, in the US or Canada, used locally, and seldom, if ever, moved outside his state and country, is probably best advised to submit to the state/ provincial registration process in which he lives and pay (perhaps rather reluctantly) the sales taxes, registration, and ongoing use fees required by his state/ provincial law. 

This is because it is simple, relatively inexpensive, has few legal obligations, and for vessels not going to foreign places, is really all that is needed. 

For these kinds of situations, a question then arises as to whether or not the vessel should be also, be registered federally in the US under US Coast Guard rules, and in Canada, under the Canada Shipping Act. 

Since both the US and CDA have minimum size requirements for this process, not all vessels can federally document even if they wished to.

Federal registration does however involve some cost, although it is relatively modest in both the US and Canada. 

Some Canadian/US lenders and insurers do in fact require federal registration of vessels they cover and some require it in the actual jurisdiction of the lender. 

Many owners who reside in the US and Canada choose to register federally with their home Country. This provides a readily recognizable country flag or registration which simplifies customs and immigration procedures when entering foreign countries. It formally authorizes the vessel to fly the flag of that home country while sending the message that it is validly registered and governed by the laws of that jurisdiction. It is also entitled to whatever benefits or handicaps that accrue therefrom.

However, the registration or documentation regimes of these countries are considered by many experts and owners alike to be ill-suited to a larger yacht which will routinely travel to and from foreign nations.

The reason for this is that as mentioned above, a vessel which chooses a US or CDN flag subjects the vessel to all of the laws applicable to ships registered in that country and indirectly through the vessels, to its owners.

Many owners consider the burden thereof to be oppressive, given the heavily regulated natures of these countries and because yachts as a category are required to comply with laws of general application to shipping. It is argued that there exists insufficient recognition that yachts as a class should be considered distinct from true commercial vessels, given their ownership, use, and different manning requirements.

Not recognizing this distinction, it is argued, tends to unnecessarily inflate the cost of yacht ownership. 

There is a compelling argument that this differentiation, which actually has been recognized by the UK, resulting in that country developing a yacht registration regime and regulatory format for yachts that are leading-edge, results in a better, more effective yacht construction and operational framework. The result of all of this is that owners in the US and Canada, particularly of larger yachts are increasingly looking for a flag state that recognizes some of these arguments.

The cost of thoroughly investigating possibilities for registering a vessel outside the United States or Canada, sometimes creating legal structures that are required to accommodate them and actually maintaining this foreign registration ongoing, mounts rather quickly, sometimes surpassing any financial benefit to be gained therefrom.

However let us assume that an owner in the US or CDA has a substantial yacht and wants to look at options, understand his local state /province requirements, and evaluate the pros and cons of his or her country's federal documentation process and the benefits of a foreign flag.

State/Provincial Registration

The state/ provincial registration process is a relatively simple process involving usually sales taxes, registration fees, and ongoing usage taxes. These vary in amount, detail, and applicability. Registration numbers or labels are frequently required to be displayed aiding in enforcement.

As indicated, many states/provinces frankly use these laws primarily to assist in funding state coffers. It is not infrequent to see some statutes at this level actually attempt a blatant revenue grab, that may, in fact, in some cases exceed their constitutional authority. These laws need to be read carefully and critically when interpreting them if costs are of concern.

If an owner of a larger more costly recreational vessel frequently uses the vessel out of state perhaps has a vacation home in another state, or frequently moves the vessel between several states, or neighboring countries, understanding the applicable laws of all jurisdictions can be beneficial.

Know the exemptions in those laws, the limits in law upon all jurisdictions’ attempts to tax both residents and non-residents when using either federal or state waterways. Understand alternate ownership structures and pursue opportunities to minimize the tax, fee, and licensing burdens of ownership. 

Country Flags  

As the size and value of the vessel increase, its area of operation expands, the cost of operating, crewing, and maintenance accelerates, the financial and operational benefits offered by other Flags can become increasingly attractive, and the choice of flag can have important consequences. 

As all jurisdictions around the world struggle for more revenue, deal with increasing pressure to regulate “bad” behavior, and desire to provide more protection for citizens, laws constantly change and become increasingly stringent.

Such considerations as intended usage, purchase price taxes, ongoing registration/use taxes, crew regulatory laws, vessel classification, safety/ inspection/verification requirements, income or revenue taxes upon charter operations, categorization of expenses if applicable, charter regulation, the effect on usage of the vessel in its primary cruising grounds including entitlement to cruising permits, vessel inbound procedures in foreign ports, and of course, financing & insurance coverage/availability, all need to be evaluated when making the choice. 

There are a significant number of national jurisdictions which offer yacht registration. 

They range across the spectrum. 

The developed nations such as US/CDA, UK, France, and many others all have advanced regulatory obligations, detailed tax codes, ongoing fees, laws covering vessel manning/safety regulations, and much more. These may be considered the “ heavily regulated” ones.

On the other hand, some jurisdictions offer a vessel registration regime that (and here I only slightly exaggerate) simply ask the name of the vessel, charge you an initial and ongoing registration fee, and send you their flag, full stop.

There are also many in between these two extremes.

Many ask me given that the simple ones seem to have an attractive legal regime (or rather the absence of same) ‘why does not everyone subscribe?’

These countries usually have virtually nothing in terms of laws that apply to inspection/maintenance, crew health and welfare, safety at sea, chartering and protection of charter passengers, and related issues. Therefore... are they not attractive to most owners who must pay the bills? 

Any conscientious owner could still voluntarily comply with other more sophisticated ship applicable standards formulated by other regimes, for important subject matters.

The answer lies in the old adage that “not all that is shiny and yellow is gold”  

This is because many jurisdictions firmly in the heavily regulated category make it difficult for yachts registered in the simple ones to operate in the more desirable jurisdictions. They do so by enforcing laws related to customs/immigration, safety, smuggling, cruising permits/charter authorizations, and related subjects, and thereby try hard to support the level of overall regulation including vessel inspection, tax regimes, and limited access to privacy that they insist upon.

More and more North American owners with larger more expensive vessels are interested in seeking a flag that provides a better combination of both respected registration and reasonable/safe maintenance and operation rules designed specifically for yachts, all in a country which also provides less tax and expense burden, less complication, and more privacy for yacht ownership.

Most owners start the process by an analysis of the following questions, including and ranking their priorities: 

  • Where the vessel will spend most of its time?
  • Will she charter?
  • What is the tax treatment of the vessel and its revenue/ expenses?
  • What are the financing and insurance requirements?
  • What are the vessel manning rules of the potential flag and what issues do these raise? 

Some examples of issues that prioritizing can identify:  

A number of countries require vessels operating commercially in the jurisdiction to be manned by citizens of that jurisdiction, with licensing credentials issued there.

In short, a UK licensed master, regardless of competence, cannot run a pleasure tour boat between cities in some countries. Since many capable experienced yacht captains and crew are citizens of and credentialed by countries with substantial maritime traditions such as the UK, Australia, CDA, New Zealand, etc., registration in some countries may limit manning choices dramatically for that yacht.

Another example is that many heavy regulated ones require that its flag vessels maintain strict compliance as the vessel ages, with the construction standards set forth under the original build society applicable to her at construction.

Some argue that these rules really are at times overkill because they take rules originally designed for commercial ships and attempt to apply them to private yachts.

This situation can obviously drive the cost of vessel maintenance and operation up sharply, and arguably unnecessarily.

Many owners accept that the correct way through this maze is to choose a flag that can provide a solid yacht/commercial registration generally accepted both in the yachting/shipping industry and by most governments of the world but which achieves a reasonable balance between the extremes of high tax/high regulation on the one hand and those which have little of either, on the other hand.  

A great place to start this process is, perhaps surprisingly, in Paris, France.

It was here that a number of countries (primarily the heavily regulated) met some years ago under a document entitled Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control.

These countries were involved in Atlantic, North America, European, Mediterranean trade/sea traffic and agreed to develop and maintain a “White List” of those countries that have demonstrated, in the opinion of the Paris signers, good laws and compliance within the categories of vessel safety & security, safe operational standards, and adequate crew living & working conditions.

So as not to leave much to the imagination they also developed a “Grey List” and a “Blacklist” which contain names not qualified to be on the “White List”. 

As a general statement, every attempt is made, by the heavily regulated countries, to discourage the use of Flags not on the “White List” including boardings, inspections, difficulty obtaining cruising permits, etc.

Included in the “White list” are countries known as the Red Ensign Group .

This is a group of countries, (of which the Cayman Islands, Isle of Mann, and Gibraltar are examples) that are current or former British overseas territories. These nations have a reputation for having high standards in the important categories referred to above and benefit from the use and privileges of the British Consular Service. They have the protection of the Royal Navy and still respect confidentiality, and have reasonably friendly tax regimes that typically avoid the overzealous nature of the intense revenue-generating laws of many highly-industrialized nations. This group all uses and enforces the MCA (UK) Large Yacht Code as approved by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) as criteria for building, equipping, and manning yachts. 

These states do a fairly good job of finding a reasonable “compromise” and they are popular with owners who are enjoying the side effect of increased value upon resale due to the need to be in compliance with the Large Yacht Code.

The Red Ensign states are unquestionably popular, but there are some drawbacks, such as the unavailability of temporary, non-taxable importation of vessels into the EU. 

Others outside the Red Flag umbrella include such jurisdictions as The Marshall Islands. This location also offers a reasonable possible alternative. The MI has little in the way of laws imposing significant taxes/ fees or that limit the ability of owners who want privacy, but the nation does enforce basic build/scantling maintenance, life-saving, safety, and manning rules on yachts that charter.

Yachts with this flag are accepted by most countries as visiting yachts entitled to cruising permits etc. and are not generally limited in their activities.

Other options exist for Yacht owners who may have different or varied objectives. Some islands in the Caribbean offer very flexible opportunities involving little or no taxes and fees, but offer little in the way of safety, security, inspection, or laws involving maintenance or safe handling and could be considered trending toward the more “simple” side of the equation.

The bottom line: The choice of a flag state for many yachts is a complex consideration and there are many important aspects an owner will need to consider in order to make the most informed decision.

For an in-depth analysis, an owner should consult international yacht registration specialists, maritime lawyers, and tax professionals, who have appropriate knowledge of potential jurisdictions.

WEATHER ALERT

A beach hazard statement in effect for Coastal Volusia Region

Hitler’s yacht sits off the coast of this florida beach. here’s why, the ostwind is one of many strange objects found in florida’s waters.

Anthony Talcott , Digital Journalist

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Nearly 5 miles off the coast of Miami Beach, a yacht sits at the bottom of the ocean.

This vessel — dubbed the Ostwind — has a strange history. It was once owned by Adolf Hitler.

The 80-foot-long yacht was commissioned by the infamous dictator in 1938 as an Olympic racing yacht, though it never actually competed.

According to historian Mike Miller , Hitler’s plan was to ride the yacht into England after Germany’s victory, where he would accept Winston Churchill’s surrender aboard the boat.

However, history had different plans.

After Germany’s defeat, the U.S. reportedly took control of the Ostwind, which was used as a training craft at the U.S. Naval Academy before being sold to a Nazi memorabilia collector in the 1970s, the Ocala Star-Banner reports.

The collector took the yacht to Jacksonville for repairs, but it was ultimately abandoned, and a marina owner then took possession.

Despite offers from a Nazi group to buy the yacht and turn it into a shrine, the marina owner ultimately reached out to Miami Beach officials about using the Ostwind as an artificial reef.

Eventually, the boat was taken from Jacksonville down to Miami Beach in 1989, and it was sunk off the coast to around 275 feet deep, state records indicate .

Nowadays, the only way to view the WWII-era relic is to throw on some scuba gear and take a dive.

Of course, the Ostwind isn’t the only strange object to be sunken off of Miami’s coast.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the following items have also been sunk near Miami Beach to create artificial reefs:

  • Smoke stacks
  • Radio towers
  • A water tower
  • Oil rig structures
  • A railroad barge
  • A minesweeper warship
