TYBA

The purpose of this notification is to bring clarification into the current rules and regulations for yachts based in and/or chartering in and out of Turkey. Flag state and registration status of vessels have been used in this letter to form structure to the reader. This notification serves to provide a general guideline of the current rules and regulations. 

The Turkish Yacht Brokers Association is sorry to inform you that on 06 July 2017, the Hellenic Republic Ministry of Maritime Affairs & Island Politics, issued and circulated the attached letter to its related official bodies, regarding the clarification and enforcement of Greek Law 4256/2014 which governs charter regulations in Greece. These methods unfortunately place many Turkish & non-Turkish yacht owners, many Turkish & non-Turkish yacht brokers and many Turkish & non-Turkish yacht charter clients, who have booked their vacations way in advance, in a very difficult position and we believe the issue should be re-addressed and evaluated in order to avoid all parties from suffering unnecessarily.
