Captain’s Guide

Important information and show guidelines

Tips and best practices to enhance your experience for you and your crew.

The Antigua Charter Yacht Show gives charter yacht brokers and agents an opportunity to see and inspect each charter yacht, and to interview and meet the crew in order to sell yacht charters to their clients.

A Captain's Guide

1. The Captain of each yacht should attend the yacht registration and Captain's Briefing for final instructions. This will be held on 4th December 2024 at 12.30pm. 

2. On return to your yacht please brief your crew on how the show runs:
Captains and crew are expected to be onboard their yachts from 9.30am to 5.30pm each show day to give broker tours and meet with other show attendees.

identity badges and more

3. Yacht Charter Brokers/Agents should be given preference onboard during the show. Brokers and most press require a tour of the yacht and may wish to speak to (interview) several members of the crew.
Broker badges are always RED
Press are BLUE
Crew Placement Agencies are YELLOW 
Marine Vendors are GREEN
Sponsors are PURPLE

4. Marine Vendors do not require a tour of the yacht but will want to speak to a specific member of the crew to introduce their service or product. Please welcome them onboard and if it is not possible for them to meet with the person, make an appointment for them to come back at a suitable time.

5. Crew Placement Agents / YELLOW Badges will be able to visit yachts at any time during show viewing hours and the captains should welcome them onboard unless they are busy with brokers.

6. All crew must monitor who comes onboard to make sure they are wearing a show identity badge. If persons come to the yacht with no badge please do not admit them onboard, send them to find a show representative.


Into the evening

7. Please monitor your crew's evening activities during the show and make sure they are onboard and in good shape each morning, not overdoing it in the bars etc.

8. Informative hours are timed so you can attend before viewing hours, so please keep an eye on the schedule of events so you don’t miss anything you want to attend.

9. On the last day of yacht viewing, the show ends at 5.30pm so please blow your boat horn to mark the end of the show.

10. Crew Party: we have a fantastic crew party planned, wristband invitations will be given to each yacht during the show.
