Since Spain relaxed taxation on charter yachts last year, eliminating the Matriculation Tax of 12% on the value of the hull, owners are applying for the Spanish charter license. This is fantastic news for the Spanish yacht charter industry and, of course, also for clients who will soon have a much wider choice when it comes to cruising the inviting Spanish waters.
Today we are featuring 5 yachts that have already confirmed that they will be available to operate charters in Spain this season. It is very exciting to see yachts like the majestic MY Ulysses, the MY Diana or MY Blush on offer in Spain. In fact, more luxury yachts that were previously deterred by the high taxes are taking advantage of these new regulations and turning their eyes towards Spain, greatly improving the standard of Spanish yacht charters.
