The Italian government’s Gazzetta Ufficiale, which lists newly enacted laws, published no. 300 ‘legge di Stabilità’ on 30 December 2014. Article 1 clause 237 stated that temporary berthing and mooring in Italian waters would now incur a duty of 10 per cent, as opposed to the 22 per cent rate that had been castigated by the Italian yachting industry for its detrimental effect on business. This however, will not apply to permanent berth purchases.
