American yacht owners and their advisors will be most interested in hearing the latest American Superyacht News Roundup by our editor, Diane M. Byrne, on Superyacht Radio. The interview, which just aired this week, provides insight into a significant situation that seems to be on the precipice of change: U.S. flagging regulations. As you’ll hear in the interview embedded below, change is in the air for the better.
Superyacht Radio launched last September. The broadcast studio is in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, with music, news, and interviews airing 24/7. Superyacht Radio takes a global approach, due to the transient nature of yachts, changing destinations throughout the seasons. You can listen online as well as via the Superyacht Radio app, available for both Apple and Android devices.
Due to Byrne’s two decades of informing and educating American yacht enthusiasts, she now does a monthly Superyacht News Roundup of information from the United States. In this new interview, she discusses Westport Shipyards’ move into charter, for instance. But, the majority of listeners will surely want to hear the latest on U.S. flagging regulations. As Byrne discusses, a recent visit with legislators in Washington, D.C. revealed that they’re well aware of how the law governing private yachts under the American flag needs to be more aligned with international standards.
