The Cayman Islands is the global leader for mega-yacht registrations. With its sight now firmly set on bringing shipping companies and maritime service providers to Cayman, the Special Economic Zone in the Cayman Islands (the “SEZ”), pursuant to The Special Economic Zones (Cayman Enterprise City) (Amendment) Order, 2015, has recently created the Cayman Maritime Services Park.
