Western Mediterranean LYSCWG

26-27 April, Palma, Mallorca As in previous years, IIMS is hosting an event around the Palma Superyacht Show on the island of Mallorca on Thursday 26 to Friday 27 April for large yacht and small craft surveyors. In recent years the event has gone from strength to strength and the agenda for this year looks equally appealing.

On the first morning the group will meet outside the Superyacht Show entrance to be transported the few miles to take a look at the METALNOX facility at Calvia.

Meet at 08.45 – Transfer to METALNOX by bus

Amongst other things to be seen at METALNOX is the Prop Scan computer system which measures the size and shape of the propellers of ships and yachts internationally. Prop Scan is the first certified ISO system for the correction, reconfiguration and optimization of propellers.

13.15 – Lunch back in Palma

After lunch the group will meet in the classroom adjacent to the Superyacht Show for a series of specially prepared presentations.

14.30 – Karen Brain: Understanding your insurance cover. What do Marine Professionals need?

15.30 – Phil Duffy (topic to be confirmed) 16.30 – Bob Hoghton: Mini ISM 17.45 – Close 19.15 – Dinner

A prompt start on the second day within the show itself gives Mike Schwarz, IIMS CEO, the opportunity to bring delegates right up to date with what has been happening in and around the IIMS family over the past few months.

The group will then transfer by bus for the second facility visit, this time a trip to Oscar Sierra before returning to the Superaycht Show. At that point the training event officially concludes and delegates can then enjoy the show for the rest of the afternoon courtesy of a free VIP pass from IIMS.

Oscar Sierra Safety Equipment S.L. is one of the leading marine safety specialists in the Mediterranean. They are both manufacturers and distributors of marine safety equipment. The group will focus on looking at lifesaving and firefighting equipment during their visit.

The cost of the event is €190. This includes training and bus transfers on both days, plus a complimentary VIP entry ticket to the show which can be used over the weekend too. Lunch and dinner is at the individual’s cost. Attendance at the event also attracts 5 CPD points.
