Communication is the cornerstone of any successful business. It’s also the cornerstone of the U.S. Superyacht Association’s (USSA) efforts to brief captains on the latest rules and regulations affecting their and their crew’s ability to enter U.S. waters and enjoy their time here. Unfortunately, lack of communication on the local and even federal level when it comes to customs and immigration is negatively impacting not only them, but also the American companies that rely on their business.
That’s why the USSA is simultaneously reaching out to Washington, to bring federal officials together with captains to open productive dialogue. In this Megayacht News Radio podcast, I speak with Tim Davey, a founding member of the USSA who’s among those leading the charge. He explains the progress made so far, as well as what all parties can expect in the months and years to come.
