May 8 marks the conclusion of the 21st Annual Genoa mega yacht charter yacht show. The industry-only event draws the top luxury charter brokers and charter journalists from around the world.
It is held at Marina Molo Vecchio. The Genoa boat show showcases 65 mega yacht Mediterranean yacht charter vessels, although it attracted 100 fewer brokers than last year, most likely due to the economy.
The number of megayacht and superyacht vessels that are actually in the show bases on the number that can fit at the available dockage. Several mega yacht owners get disappointed, as a few superyachts are always left on the waiting list.
WHO ORGANIZES THE GENOA YACHT SHOW?
The show is organized by the Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association (MYBA). Yachting-related vendors set up booths along the docks. They represent diverse products, from yacht insurance to hotel and tourism destinations. The most common yachts desired for Mediterranean yachting vacations are motoryachts. Private sailing yachts dominate the Caribbean yacht charter marketplace.
The majority of yachts in the Genoa show are motoryachts, with the largest being the 70+ meter superyacht models, Boadicea and Haida G this year.
New yachts with new crew attend the show. This benefits an industry aching to expand beyond the economic downturn. New private luxury charter yachts include LEO FUN, BIG CITY, PAOLYRE, SALU, SLIPSTREAM, and many more.
The 2008 season was sluggish due to the global economic meltdown. Many brokers at the Genoa show cite an uptick in the number of inquiries for a summertime charter. Brokers, owners, and crew are all optimistic for a rebound in luxury mega yacht charter vacations this summer.
The buzz on the docks this year shows interest by both yacht owners and charter customers. Exploration of areas outside of the standard cote d’azur yacht charter locale is buzzing. Potential charter customers inquire about Croatia yacht charter vacations and Greece yacht charter outings. Yacht owners notice the buzz from charter brokers. As more clients express interest in a region, more owners are then willing to relocate their megayachts to non-traditional destinations. Some of these places include Turkey, Greece, and Croatia.
