MYBA Superyacht Top Chef Competition

The Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association (MYBA) Superyacht Top Chef Competition in Genoa, Italy is always an exciting component to our charter shows.  Each crew works as a team, supporting their yacht chef in gaining prestigious acknowledgment and prizes.

The theme for this year’s Top Yacht Chef competition in May 2016 was “All Italian Ingredients”. For yacht crews, the coveted Tablescaping Yacht Service award was also at stake.

To view the complete list of winners, visit this  Chef’s Competition Winners announcement.

Categorized by yacht size, judging appointment times are given to the Chef on the day of competition. Food and decor must all be prepared when the judges march aboard.  On May 4th the judges, press and photographers were tightly scheduled to “yacht hop” the two large docks in Genova where this event was sited.
