MYC’s collective vision regarding “nautical sector challenges”:
With the increase in both number and size of yachts now visiting the area, the main challenge is keeping the Mediterranean Sea clean, plastic free, and making general yachting practices more eco-friendly.
To achieve this, we need to upgrade the older marinas so yachts can connect to a black/grey pipeline, which pumps directly into the main sewage system, so the waste can be treated correctly rather than yachts expelling straight into the sea.
To protect the Posidonia grass, we need to install more moorings – which are also suitable for use by larger yachts. The grass is an important part of the local eco system and illegal anchoring in these protected areas also needs to be policed more stringently.
A tighter control of regulation in general, but particularly MARPOL in the cruise line sector, is also an important factor in making best ecological practice commonplace.
ABOUT BYD / NAUTIC SECTOR
“The Balearics has grown to be a huge yachting centre and infrastructure has rapidly been built up over recent years to provide a wide and comprehensive network of support. The Islands have grown in their approach to visitors too, and now boast an impressive seven Michelin-starred restaurants and numerous golf courses of international class. Cruising around the Islands is spectacular and it offers some of the finest beaches in the world, but evidently this comes at a cost to the environment of the local waters, something Master Yachts and all involved with the Balearic Yacht Destination look forward to changing”.
