Every December, the beautiful Caribbean island of Antigua is inundated with luxury charter yachts for the Antigua Charter Yacht Show.
Marking the start of the Caribbean superyacht season, the Antigua Charter Yacht Show is one of the most significant meets in the charter industry and attracts some of the most impressive luxury yachts in the region.
The week-long event provides brokers with the opportunity to explore the yachts in show, finding out more about their designs, layouts and facilities and meeting their captains and crew. With this insider knowledge, charter professionals are better equipped to match their clients with their dream superyacht.
Each year, around 75 superyachts grace the shores of Antigua and these are berthed across the show locations of the Nelson’s Dockyard Marina in English Harbour, and the Falmouth Harbour Marina and the Antigua Yacht Club Marina in Falmouth Harbour.
There is also a lively social programme of welcome parties, broker lunches, evening yacht hops and activity days. The chef competition is also a mainstay of the event and is one of the most respected culinary contests in the charter industry, with a different theme each year.
To find out more details about the upcoming event and the yachts on display, talk to your preferred charter broker.
Each year a fantastic selection of yachts are available for inspection...
