The International Superyacht Society said YachtInfo — its educational platform — will present a seminar on visiting Norway and Cuba today during the MYBA’s 28th annual Charter Show in Genoa, Italy.

The seminar, sponsored by Superyacht Norway, will be moderated by ISS education committee chairman Bransom Bean.

Panelists will include professionals who have experience and knowledge of Cuba and/or Norway. They will provide insight about the legalities, provisioning and navigation of these waters.

“In 2004 the National Geographic Traveler panel of specialists rated Fjord Norway the world’s most attractive unspoiled travel destination,” Superyacht Norway manager Ola Hiis Bergh said in a statement. “In 2005 UNESCO included the fjords of Norway on its World Heritage List. By sponsoring and participating in the MYBA Charter Show Destinations Seminar, we are able to further define why yachting families will find Norway beckoning with a sense of the unspoiled where the sea carves deep into the mountains.”

Cuba, less than 100 miles from Florida, is an exciting, newly opened superyacht destination, although not without some challenges, including exacting requirements and formalities for its superyacht visitors.

“Having visited in both countries I am very pleased to be asked to chair this panel,” Bean said. “I will be facilitating our MYBA/YachtInfo panel as they highlight the spectacular scenery and friendly reception on Europe’s doorstep that is Norway and the virgin cruising grounds of Cuba, but also cover the fluid situation that are the legalities and logistics facing the first superyachts visiting this fascinating country. For the global superyacht charter industry, respecting Cuba’s rules and regulations is of utmost importance to establish a good working relationship with its officials. As our industry continuously looks for ways to delight and inspire our customers, new and varied destinations are becoming ever more desirable for charter clients and operators alike. We anticipate a lively and interactive session as we explore two less well-known cruising opportunities.”
