Last week, our intrepid veteran Charter Broker, Sue Gearan, headed south to report to our dear readers and clients on the best boats at the Miami Yacht Show (MYS). At the MYS’ new 2019 location, One Herald Plaza, between the Venetian and MacArthur causeways, Sue vetted beautiful and exciting charter yachts, met captains, crews and chefs (also beautiful and exciting), and took clients on board by appointment. Here’s some of what Sue wrote about a boat particularly worthy of note at the MYS.
