IIMS Palma Training Event

Date(s) - 25/04/2019 - 26/04/2019
9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Restaurant Varadero


The IIMS Western Mediterranean Large Yacht & Small Craft Working Group will meet for its annual event on 25th and 26th April in Palma Majorca, immediately prior to the Palma Superyacht Show which starts on 27th April. Additionally we are offering a practical sea trial activity on the morning of 27th April for up to 10 pre booked surveyors. Complimentary VIP tickets for the Palma Superyacht Show will also be given to all attendees. The map shown is the location of Restaurant Varadero, the meeting place for Friday morning. The other classroom based actvities are held just 100 metres from the cafe and full joining instructions will be sent in good time.

The event is open to all IIMS members and also non-members alike. As you will see, the schedule is subject to some final tweaking, particularly on the first morning.

To attend both days is £200 (approximately 235 euros at the current exchange rate). There are also 10 places available for any delegate who wants to attend the sea trial activity on the Saturday morning at no additional charge.
