Henning Schwarzkopf of Cheuram on Yachting Law

By Ben Roberts

When we sat down with Chinese commercial law experts Cheuram at the 2012 Monaco Yacht Show, their ambitions to raise their profile within the superyacht industry came across loud and clear.

Eighteen months on and finding ourselves both at the Hainan Rendezvous in China, perhaps the most prestigious yachting and luxury lifestyle event in the region, it seemed the perfect time to catch up on the consultancy group’s developments.

Speaking to Shari Liu at the Hainan show, Henning Schwarzkopf, managing director of Cheuram, discussed his thoughts on how the superyacht industry is evolving in China, the key changes he would like to see in terms of government regulation, and Cheuram’s plans for the rest of the year.

He was particularly illuminating on the subject of superyachts, which present unique challenges when it comes to legal regulations. Cheuram’s role, Mr Schwarzkopf believes, is to take that challenge away from a yacht owner and leave them free to enjoy their purchase with absolute peace of mind.
