A day in the life of an intern in the Yachting Industry – Antibes Boat Show 2012

DSC01900Well, not just any day, last Friday, the 13th April, and the 2nd day of the Antibes Yacht Show. Having been invited to an exclusive ‘Yacht Hop’ event, which involved a four-course meal, each course on a different yacht, I knew from the outset that I was in for a treat.

It kicked off with a champagne reception with appetizers on the sleek Sunseeker, NEW BEGINNINGS OF LONDON, where we were able to admire the elegant decoration of this beautiful charter yacht. Next was starters aboard D5, where we experienced the chef’s delightful gazpacho and cheese biscuits and then it was on to LADY SOFIA for mains, salmon cooked to perfection with asparagus wrapped in parma ham…simply delicious!

However, it was the fourth and final sunseeker vibe (VIBE) where the party really started with chocolate mousses, fruit and chocolate fondue, strawberry daquiris and Pimms. sunseeker VIBE itself is a

fantastic vessel, sporty, sleek and modern with a great minimalistic interior and fabulously spacious cabins. Captain Phil was certainly the life and soul of the party and it’s evident that with his expert mixologist stewardess Melissa, anyone would be

guaranteed endless fun on a charter on this 23m Sunseeker.

Next we continued on into the actual Antibes Yacht Show where hundreds of beautiful yachts were all open to the visitors to explore their interiors and meet their captains and crew. We also had the opportunity to walk around the stalls and talk to businesses from all aspects of the industry. Overall, it was a fascinating experience not only to go on board some stunning yachts, but also to discover all the industries related to yachting too.
