Yachting

Back to Corporate and Commercial

DQ’s yacht team regularly advises owners, leading banks and finance houses, yacht managers and fiduciaries on all aspects of the sale, purchase and financing of yachts. The team also regularly attends boat shows worldwide.

The Isle of Man Ship Registry provides a world class service and is available 24/7 for yacht registrations.  The Isle of Man Registry is a British Red Ensign Register.

Yachts registered on the Isle of Man Register or simply owned through an Isle of Man entity are capable of attracting lower or zero rates of VAT in certain circumstances.
