What does the show offer?

The show has an excellent selection of charter yachts in attendance, ready for inspections from charter brokers and press, crew interviews and for non-exhibiting vendors to go boat to boat introducing their product or service. It provides the ideal opportunity for members of the yachting industry to network and discover what’s on offer and to secure the best services for their yachts or clients.

The event schedule includes:

  • Captain’s Briefing
    The Captain of each yacht should attend the yacht registration and Captain's Briefing for final instructions. This will be held on 4th December 2023 at 12.30pm. Captains should then brief their crew on how the show runs. 

  • Chef and steward/stewardess competition
    All yacht chefs and crew are invited to showcase their creative talent by taking part in our Concours de Chef culinary and tablescaping competition, which will focus on the guest charter experience. It’s the ideal opportunity for each yacht to showcase what they offer their guests. The competition will be made up of a number of size categories including yachts 160ft and over, 126-159ft, and 125ft and under. The prizegiving will take place on the 8th December at 5.30pm at the Admiral’s Inn. Discover the competition details

  • Yacht viewings
    Brokers, vendors and press will have the opportunity to view the yachts daily from 9.30am until 5.30pm from the 5th to the 8th December. This gives the Captains the chance to showcase their offering to those who will be promoting charter yachts to others.

What happens upon arrival at the event?

Upon arrival, we ask all show attendees to come to the Hospitality Desk which is located in the Copper & Lumber Store Hotel, Nelson’s Dockyard. On the 4th of December attendees can register from 2.30pm to 7.30pm. On all other show days the Hospitality Desk is open from 7.30am to 5.30pm.

You’ll receive your Show Identity Pass, Show Program, Dock Plans and Bag. The program includes the schedule of events, a list of exhibiting yachts, brokers, non-exhibiting vendors and press, and other useful information. Be sure to follow the schedule of events closely so as not to miss any event you may wish to attend. Please note that you must wear your identity pass to all functions at all times.

How can I get around the event?

  • You can move from marina to marina on the show shuttle which will be waiting in front of each marina. This service is available between 9am and 6pm. 

  • There are also golf cart shuttles at Nelson’s Dockyard Marina and Falmouth Harbour Marina to help you get to the yachts.

  • Evening shuttles are available between 6pm and 9pm to take you back to your hotels from Nelson’s Dockyard or Antigua Yacht Club. These shuttles will be waiting in front of the marinas and there is also a number you can call in your show program on the shuttle page.

  • Please note that if you need transport to your hotel after 9pm, a fee will be charged.

I’m a broker / vendor / press - what extras will I be offered?

  • Brokers and press will be given yacht tours and will be able to interview crew whilst onboard.

  • Brokers and press are invited to all open house evening yacht hops. It is at the yacht's discretion as to whether non-exhibiting vendors are invited to these events, please ask the yachts if you wish to attend and are not a broker.

  • Priority is always given to the brokers. Non-exhibiting vendors will not be offered a tour, they will work around the brokers and must ask to meet the captain, chef, engineer or crew member they want to see to introduce their product.
