The Gathering of Crewed Yachts

One of the main attractions of the Charter Yacht Show is, of course, the gathering of crewed yachts. These are more than just boats; these magnificent vessels each have their own personality and charm as industry professionals and enthusiasts are able to attend this event to step aboard these luxurious floats. Attendees have the opportunity to explore the cabins, decks and amenities they all offer and engage with other knowledgeable professionals and enthusiasts, including the crews who make these charters exceptional.

Opportunity For Brokers & Industry Players

The British Virgin Island Yacht Show provides a unique opportunity for industry players and brokers to get up close and personal with multiple chartered yachts. These brokers will and do play a significant role in matching high-end clients with the perfect yacht charter experience, as attending this event allows them to explore and gather information on yachts firsthand to improve their businesses and their matching. Holding discussions with the crews, understanding the services that each of these yachts provides and the experience their clientele will have when on board ensures they make informed decisions and recommendations about Yacht Charters to the people they serve. It is a dynamic exchange of information that ultimately benefits the charters, charter enthusiasts and brokers alike.
