Lambros, one of our specialist Caribbean charter brokers, attended the 32nd Annual BVI Charter Yacht Show from the 7th to the 10th of November this year! He was very impressed with the turnout at this year’s show as well as the quality of yachts present. Read on to see his comments and favoriteyachts!
“As last year, the annual BVI Charter Yacht Show, organized by the BVI Charter Yacht Society, took place in Nanny Cay Marina, Tortola, BVI. The 2013 show has been the biggest show so far with a record number of 77 participating boats. In this year’s show, the foremost display was clearly of crewed catamarans which, in an area where crewed cats reign supreme, is definitely on the up… Overall, the level of boats was rather impressive with lots of new entries in the area including many modern boats with professional crews. Also, the existing boats were in pristine condition.“
“Particularly interesting were the new Fountaine Pajot catamarans! These are 3rd generation design models, with an excellent use of space and so many amenities that it would take me forever to mention them all!
Some notable points are:
– They are super eco-friendly boats, incorporating powerful solar panels that render them power-sufficient (when no A/C is used of course!)
– They both feature 5 very spacious interior cabins
– They boast a very clever “tender garage” in the stern, with huge sunbathing areas on top”
“The 32nd Annual BVI Charter Yacht Show took place for second consecutive year at Nanny Cay Marina in Tortola between 7th and 10th November. Both the number of participating boats and the attending brokers have been a great success. The BVI Yacht Charter Society organized various events such as the “Travel the Nations Yacht Hop” and the Croker (Crew/Broker) Beach Olympics, which was excellent for enhancing the interaction between Brokers and Crews. Also, the CYBA Annual General Meeting took place on 8th November with a satisfying number of attendees according to the organization.”
Nieves has also selected her favorite yachts featured in the 2013 show from all the amazing boats that were present.
“(Christensen 1986 refit 2011) – SYRENE is a spacious and and comfortable charter yacht. Features two master cabins and 2 guests with ensuite private bathroom. Tasteful decoration – nice fabrics and carpets including Egyptian cotton linens. The crew is 4 with her chef. She is the perfect boat for family charters in the Caribbean aboard a motor yacht!”
“(Jeanneau 53 2013) – LORI B V is brand new with a distinctive blue hull. She offers speed, elegance and pleasure. Leather seats and sofas, three spacious cabins with private heads – the forward cabin can be converted into a stateroom with “his” and “her” bathroom. 2/3 double cabins. Captain Berth and Chef/Steward Emily will ensure safety, comfort and super tasty dishes. They love Spanish wines! – there was a bottle of Ramon Bilbao (Rioja wine) in the middle of the table of the boat! And the food they prepared for the Travel the Nations Yacht Hop was delicious, representing the US ’deep south’.”
ORION, a 90 ft Catana catamaran, was a clear winner with our brokers attending the 2013 BVI Charter Yacht Show. The favorite boat on show of both Lambros and Nieves, she is a true luxury crewed catamaran now available for charter with Boatbookings.
