HUGE Improvements For Private and Charter Yachts Wishing to Cruise St Lucian Waters

The St. Lucia Tourist Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation announces that all new revised policies have been approved by its government to help stimulate growth and development in St. Lucia’s yachting sector. Several proposals presented by Yachting Director Cuthbert Didier have been sanctioned and will facilitate clearing in and out of the country, as well as an ease on taxation and many other added benefits to encourage cruising in its waters.

These changes will greatly improve and support yachting for private and charter yachts wishing to cruise St. Lucian waters as well as those wishing to conduct yachting business in the country. Some of the changes include the following:

These great efforts by the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation and the Government of St. Lucia to foster yachting in the state will likely trickle down to other businesses in the country, leading to even further economic growth within the country. “This crucial change benefits everyone in the yachting industry, from owners to crew, charter guests and yacht businesses as well as residents of the island itself. We have been working on implementing these changes for some time, and anticipate great results for all involved,” says Didier.

As part of ongoing support to the development and growth of yachting in St. Lucia, IGY Marinas works closely with the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation, St. Lucia Tourist Board and the Saint Lucia Government and applauds them on this far-reaching effort that will greatly impact the industry and serve as a model for other countries to emulate.
