Book launched at Posidonia highlighting New York’s maritime prowess

New York Maritime Inc (NYMAR) took to the rooftop of Kyla Shipping’s office in Athens this evening for the launch of a new book highlighting the Big Apple’s strengths as a maritime hub.

Entitled New York IS the Capital for Shipping, the book highlights the city’s diverse maritime strengths.

“New York is considered the premier place for the shipping industry and reinforces what we know—an industry as global and demanding as shipping can only thrive in the city that never sleeps. New York truly is the capital for shipping,” commented NYMAR’s chairman, Clay Maitland, a regular Splash columnist.

Ranging from the accessibility of capital, to legal support, tax issues, arbitration, insurance and more, the contents of the book are intended to provide new insights into the ways in which New York asserts its maritime hub status

NYMAR was created over 10 years ago to help promote New York and its environs as the optimal venue for shipping interests to do business.
