In February, Charter Broker Sue Gearan escaped the polar vortex and attended the 2019 Miami Yacht Show at its new location. In between vetting boats, meeting captains and crews, and sampling goodies from top yacht chefs, she toured yachts with clients by appointment. Here is Sue’s choice for the 2019 MYS’s most interesting charter yacht: M/Y BOXER
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.
Just back from the 2018 Antigua Charter Yacht Show and I can report that it was a raving success! Though I missed the ever-popular Chef’s Competition where top yacht chefs from around the world bring their best skills and creativity, reports confirm that everyone enjoyed this year’s theme: A New Year’s Eve Dinner Party Celebration.
As glamorous as attending a superyacht show sounds, it’s actually essential work for charter brokers – fun work but essential. Boat shows like the MYBA Charter Show, provide charter brokers in-depth tours of scores of charter yachts and opportunities to meet captains and crews, sample menus, track travel trends, catch up with suppliers and discover destinations. All of this in-person research helps yacht charter brokers match each client with their perfect yacht, crew, menu, destination and adventure.
