For charter yacht brokers, lots of homework goes into finding the perfect match for clients who wish to book a week’s vacation or extended trip on a luxury yacht. Working to their advantage is the Newport Charter Yacht Show presented by Helly Hansen Newport, staged annually by Newport Shipyard in Newport, R.I.
Scheduled this year for June 17-20, the show provides brokers with one-stop shopping for unique charter opportunities in New England, and it allows attendees, including agents (who represent the yacht rather than the charterer) and other industry professionals, to network and absorb as much knowledge as possible about their ever-evolving marketplace.
Set to appear at the Newport Charter Yacht Show are 24 world-class yachts. Nineteen of those are motor vessels, five are sailing, and they are all docked within easy walking distance of each other at the mega yacht-friendly Newport Shipyard. Just over half of the vessels are more than 100 feet in length, with the longest being the 150’ Delta Motor Yacht (M/Y) Time For Us, shown by Burgess of New York.
The smallest sailboat is the 60’ catamaran Cygnus, represented by Ocean Explorer Catamarans while the smallest motor yacht is the Nordhaven 63’ Asturias, shown by Superyacht Sales & Charter of Ft. Lauderdale (which also has three larger yachts in the show).
In between are all sizes, makes and designs of beautiful rides and just about any amenity or water toy one can think of to go with them.
The American Yacht Charter Association (AYCA) will host industry-related speakers on Tuesday and Wednesday morning during the show and a historic trolley ride tour of Newport.
It also will host its annual Seminar Series, which features a roundtable format.
