Rhode Island, New England
17 - 20 Jun 2019
Dedicated exclusively to yacht charter professionals, the Newport Charter Yacht Show will be back on 17 June 2019 with another four days of superyacht showcases on Rhode Island.
Agents, owners, brokers and captains will all converge in Newport Shipyard for a comprehensive line-up of yacht viewings, crew competitions and on-land exhibits. Now in its 36th year, the long-running event is the only one of its kind in existence in New England.
The charter yachts signed up to attend are all available for charter in the region, and when the show begins, they will open their doors to attendees for exclusive tours and the chance to meet with the captains and crew.
Such an opportunity imparts brokers with the insider knowledge needed to best match their clients with the ideal charter yacht for the upcoming cruising season.
A dedicated seminar programme will also enable show attendees to discuss a variety of topical issues linked to the luxury charter industry. Past subjects have ranged from VAT in the Mediterranean and insurance to charter itineraries and outdoor photography.
Crews meanwhile will be able to showcase their skills in a programme of competitions, including the popular chefs’ contest. Superyacht chefs are challenged to create a themed dish for a panel of expert judges, and all prizes will be announced during a closing cocktail party on the final evening.
Other social events to look forward to include a yacht hop on the third evening.
