The four-strong Luxury Charter Group team will meet in Antigua, one of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean, for the 55th Antigua Charter Yacht Show, 4 to 10 December. Showcasing almost 100 impeccable luxury charter yachts, both mono and multihull, sailing and motor yachts, it is the largest dedicated International Charter Show, attended by industry professionals from all over the world.
The ideal place to inspect yachts and dream of the distant horizons they can whisk their guests to, Antigua will host the event over three big locations: Nelson's Dockyard Marina in English Harbour, Falmouth Harbour Marina and Antigua Yacht Club Marina both located in Falmouth Harbour.
Nelson's Dockyard is a beautifully restored Georgian-era marina that has been in operation since 1745 and was once home to the British Royal Navy. During Show Week, it's buzzing with charter professionals, Captains, crew, yacht managers and of course, what we have all come to see, this year's selection of captivating charter vessels.
This year's Show has been extended by to five days, allowing one day for visiting brokers to experience a mini-charter cruising Antigua's stunning coastal waters and islands aboard some of the finest charter yachts available this season. Many have crossed the Atlantic to be available for charter in the Caribbean season as well as the Mediterranean.
We will be renewing acquaintances and networking, as well as inspecting as many of the charter yachts on show as possible.
Radek Gendek, Luxury Charter Group's Senior Charter Executive in Europe, has been invited onboard the magnificent one-of-a-kind sailing charter yacht, MALTESE FALCON to savour its cuisine and immerse himself in the hospitality this exceptional vessel is renowned for. Declared a "floating masterpiece" by the world superyacht fraternity and voted "Finest Superyacht ever", awarded the Superyacht World Trophy, the 88m (289ft) MALTESE FALCON is the ultimate in luxury and the most spectacular yacht available for charter.
Among the other stand-out charter yachts we will revisit is NERO, another unique vessel that treats its charter guests to a 'Bucket List' experience. The 90.1m (295.60ft) NERO was built in 2007 by Corsair Yachts with the authentic charm and elegance of the glamorous 1920s, complete with the state-of-the-art technology of a modern world class superyacht.
REGINA is the exquisite 56m sailing superyacht that was built to the lines of a classic schooner, famous for her part played in the Bond movie Skyfall. Available for luxury charters in the Caribbean this season and in Croatia and Montenegro I the Med summer 2017, she is in demand for her elegance and incredible deck spaces for dining, sunning and entertaining.
OCTOPUSSY is the 43.59m (143'0"ft) Heesen motor yacht positioned as the ultimate fun family yacht, with plenty of deck and interior space, and an excellent selection of water toys for everyone to enjoy!
The magnificent 51.8m (169'8) sailing charter yacht Q was built for bluewater cruising, with its soaring ketch-rig and sleek hull. Onboard, Q is sheer sophistication, boasting a sublime cockpit with fully retractable windows that offers guests uninterrupted views in a climate controlled area at the touch of a button.
19TH HOLE, the exquisite Sunreef 74 catamaran that was built with space, comfort, and performance in mind. Ultra-modern and supremely livable, 19TH HOLE delivers a luxurious charter vacation in the Caribbean this season and in the western Mediterranean in summer 2017
