“The Monaco Yacht Show is considered the most prestigious yachting event in the world,” says Mr. Walton, “and is attended by tens of thousands. As one of the world’s most prestigious registers, it is imperative that we maintain a highly visible presence at the event each year. It is a real thrill to walk along the quay in Monaco and see Cayman’s Red Ensign waving from the majority of the sterns of the world’s most beautiful vessels.”
