One of our favourite yacht manufacturers that is going to be exhibiting is Azimut, who make some fine yachts. They will be showcasing the new Azimut 60 (above), which you can expect to see on the charter market in the coming months.

A fine alternative to the Azimut 60, is WILJIM, which is an Azimut 62 Evolution, available for charter out of the French Riviera, perfect for your Summer charter 2013. Her fantastic crew of two will ensure that on your charter you have an extraordinary experience, whether with colleagues, friends or family. For more information on her please click here.
