The prestigious Antigua Yacht Show 2012 commences this Sunday at the Nelson’s Dockyard Marina in English Harbour, the Falmouth Harbour Marina and the Antigua Yacht Club Marina. This charter yacht show presents 98 vessels on show ranging from crewed sailboats and catamarans to super yachts, making this show the ideal opportunity for brokers to take a look at the very latest luxury yachts available for the upcoming charter season in the Caribbean. The show grew in popularity with the increase in tourism, as Antigua became an accessible destination, which prides itself on its hospitality, the friendliness of the locals and the fact that part of the island has dedicated itself to the servicing of the yachting industry.
Past shows have proven successful, yet we believe the Antigua Boat Show 2012 is about to exceed all previous shows. Firstly, the yachts on show this year are the best that we have seen, with the latest Sunreef Crewed and Power Catamarans, prestigious Nautors Swan monohulls and luxury CRN super yachts. Attendee’s will also be able to see the worlds largest catamaran HEMISPHERE on show this year, which is definitely worth a visit after our great review of her at the Monaco Yacht Show 2011.
One of the boats that we are most looking forward to see is the luxury sailing yacht REE, a 115 Valdettaro, with accommodation for up to 10 guests in 5 sumptuous cabins. She epitomises the style, elegance and quality of all of the yachts on show at the Antigua Boat Show. She offers all of the luxuries that you would expect to find on a 40m Motor Yacht after her $2.5m refit in 2011. Available for charter in the Caribbean in the winter, you should definitely make the most of her water toys and great can-do crew.
Alternatively, one of our favourite crewed luxury super yachts on show at this years show is SHERAKHAN. This Ververk 228 epitomises luxury and is the perfect yacht to entertain a large number of friends and family, with accommodation for up to 26 guests in 13 cabins. Each suite is extremely spacious, measuring from 30m up to 50m squared. She features a BBQ, Jacuzzi, Jetski’s and enough water toys to keep everyone entertained for hours. Available for charters in the Caribbean at Christmas and West Mediterranean in the Summer, SHERAKHAN is the perfect yacht for those who want to push the boat out!
