Abacus will be launching a new service line at MYS

Abacus will be attending the 27th annual Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) to be held at Port Hercules, Monaco, from 27 to 30 September 2017. Operating in conjunction with its partner, Helicopter Services Malta Ltd (HSML), Abacus will be launching a new service line for helicopter owners at this year’s MYS.

Commenting on the upcoming launch and event, Abacus Director and HSML Accountable Manager, Samantha Snow, said: “The Monaco Yacht Show is a must-attend event for all private yacht and asset owners, prospective buyers and decision-makers from leading companies in the luxury asset sectors. It delivers a spectacular exhibition that is renewed every year reflecting the constant changes in an industry driven by the desires of its wealthy clientele.”

“Participating at this event gives us the opportunity to talk with our existing and potential clients, learn more about their plans and share our mutual goals for the future. In recent years, the superyacht market has considerably grown and yacht owners have come to see an on board helicopter as a necessity rather than a convenience. Today, it is indeed rare to see a superyacht launched that does not have a helicopter deck because more and more buyers are having a helicopter deck incorporated into the original design to enhance the yacht’s value in charter operations and resale.

With this in mind, we feel that our offering will perfectly suit the current market requirements. Combining an innovative service line with the support that a CSP can provide will enable us to offer a complete range of services for heliyacht owners.”

“On one side, Abacus has wealth of experience within Yachts and Aviation industries. Based in both the Isle of Man and Malta, Abacus provides an extensive range of services aimed at owners and their representatives, with focus on ownership planning, tax and administration. Abacus continually reviews and shapes its services to meet the ever changing requirements and regulations in these industries, ensuring that ownership structures and how they are administered are both compliant with current regulations and meet each client’s specific requirements.”

“On the other side, HSML has extensive knowledge in the helicopter industry which allows its team to be able to offer helicopter services on a various range of helicopter types. Based in Malta, a location which links continents and lies at the strategic crossing point in the Mediterranean, HSML can guarantee quality and safety for its clients and operators minimising maintenance downtime, keeping costs controlled and ensuring maintenance is carried out to exacting standards. HSML work for private and corporate helicopter owners includes aircraft specification and acquisition, day-to-day flight management, planned maintenance and aircrew management.”

“Managing helicopter operations for superyachts with an embarked aircraft is a specialist skill and we pride ourselves on being at the forefront in terms of development, innovation and new solutions which enable to meet clients’ ever changing requirements.”
