YATCO has officially partnered with the yachting industry’s largest charter show in the calendar – the Antigua Charter Yacht Show, being held in Antigua from December 4 – 9, 2023.
As official partners of the show, YATCO will have a few team members on the ground, including Mike Hutton, Director of Charter, and Gabriela Yanakieva, European Account Manager.
Since its launch, YATCO’s charter division has grown to include nearly 2,000 charter yachts available for booking through YATCO and seen a boom in interest in clients looking for a reliable and proven MLS system to work with. YATCO is proud to be a part of the yachting industry’s largest charter show and preview the many fantastic yachts available to charter this season.
Hutton shares, “The Antigua Charter Show is an excellent opportunity to get onboard and see some of the finest charter yachts available, with brokers being given a sneak peek behind some of the top charter yachts on the water. With a chef competition, networking events and seminars, there is something for every sector of the industry.”
Karen Kelly Shea, Charter Management, Broker & Sales Consultant at Nicholson Yachts comments, “Nicholson Yachts has a long connection to the Antigua Charter Yacht Show, with the Show being started by Commander Nicholson and his family in the 1950s. From connecting with crew and captains you’ve seen throughout their careers, to a world-class chef competition, informative seminars, and the chance to network with 600 or so of our industry peers, makes this the perfect event to round out the calendar. Antigua really is the home base for a lot of yachts as well, offering the best weather throughout the winter, and the perfect jumping off point for the Caribbean. From 50ft catamarans to 250ft motor yachts, guests get to preview the top charter yachts for their clients.”
