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.

Informa’s British-based global exhibition division makes an announcement. It acquired Yachting Promotions Inc. Yachting Promotions is doing business as (d/b/a) Show Management. They produce three of the world’s largest in-water boat shows. For instance, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Yachts Miami Beach, and the Palm Beach International Boat Show. Yachting Promotions Inc. owners are Active Interest Media. AIM is a magazine publishing company. It is co-headquartered in El Segundo, CA and Boulder, CO, USA
Informa paid $133 million for Yachting Promotions Inc. (YPI). It was purchased specifically from AIM – Active Interest Media.
Show Management produced the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. It is held at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center in perpetuity. The company also produced the Palm Beach International Boat Show. In addition, they produce the Miami yacht and Brokerage Show. The Miami yacht show recently renamed Yachts Miami Beach. Other shows include St. Petersburg Power and Sailboat Show and Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota, Florida, additionally.
In 2006, Active Interest Media (AIM) purchased Show Management. Show management was formally renamed Yachting Promotions, Inc.
A prepared statement by Andrew Clurman, AIM’s president and CEO follows. Moreover, the sale of Show Management to Informa is part of the company’s long-term strategic plan to accelerate their growth.
“AIM will reinvest the proceeds from this sale to grow our digital video, online education, marketing services, and events in our other verticals.”
Informa’s acquisition of Show Management equals the company’s plans. Specifically, to expand its global exhibitions business in the U.S.A. They also produce the Monaco Yacht Show. This acquisition consequently makes Informa Exhibitions unique. It is the world’s leading yacht show organizer. How will shows change with the new purchase? Will the yacht shows now have red carpets? Specifically like the Dubai International Yacht Show (DIBS)?
Our company president, Jana Sheeder, recently attended the 2017 edition of Yachts Miami Beach. She and Team 1-800 Yacht Charter team inspected several private luxury yacht charter vessels. For example, Lurssen motor yacht MARTHA ANN, James Bond yacht SKYFALL, and the brand new Benetti motor yacht 11.11. Jana comments on the acquisition of Show Management by Informa.
“Informa operates over 200 trade and consumer exhibitions around the world annually. With their global resources, I believe Informa is positioned to focus on the continued growth and success of the world’s finest boat shows. In terms of exposure of charter yachts to prospective clients, this should be a good opportunity for cross promotion; for example, we should be able to promote a winter/spring Florida yacht charter vacation to a client while a particular yacht is here in Miami at Yachts Miami Beach – then bring that client to Monte Carlo in September and host them on the same yacht during the Monaco Yacht Show. I’m excited by the chance to extend customer relationships across multi-show platforms and destinations.”
In conclusion, learn how a private yacht charter vacation can help you. You reconnect with others. Family and friends joyfully spend time with you. Embrace diverse cultures. Rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit. We call it “The Superyacht Experience™.” We want to share it with you!

This is a photo from the beautiful Yachts Miami Beach Boat Show. Our inspections included several private luxury yacht charter vessels docked at the Deep Harbour Island Gardens marina, near downtown Miami, Florida. As we walked along the docks, I noticed our company President, Jana Sheeder, often pausing, bending down, picking up something, and putting it in her “Eco-Hero” tote bag. I asked Jana what she was picking up, and she paused and poured a few of the contents of her bag onto a locker box on the dock.
“Take a look,” she sighed. “This debris can easily end up in the water where it becomes part of the ocean pollution problem, as well as a threat to birds and marine life.”
So, I snapped the photo you see here.
When I look at this photo, I see beautiful superyachts that serve as a gateway to experience the wonders of our oceans. I see a segment of the tourism industry – private luxury yacht charter – that generates millions of dollars of revenue annually. I see a support network of thousands of crewmembers, dockhands, marina workers, and maintenance and repair staff. They all support their families from a livelihood that is inextricably dependent upon healthy oceans.
For me, the trash in the photo is a harsh reminder that the refuse we see floating in marinas and along the seawalls and walkways is a direct threat to the health of our waterways. It is also, therefore, a threat to our own livelihood.
As you read this blog, I can guess what some of you are thinking. “I’m not part of the problem – I would never throw trash in the water.” Good intention, but you or someone you know might still be directly responsible for pollution in our waterways.
It’s a common misconception that most trash comes from people throwing things directly into the water.
“Believe it or not, much to the trash in our waterways comes from litter thrown out of cars, litter that blows from surrounding areas into the waterways, illegal dumping, and this item really irks me – cigarettes left on the ground,” says Jana. “During a big rainstorm, all that junk ends up in the watershed, and some of it eventually makes its way down to the bays, harbors, marinas, beaches, and worse – onto our fragile coral reefs and into the stomachs of marine life (like fish and turtles) and shorebirds.”
Efforts are underway to rid our waterways of trash. In Baltimore, Maryland, two (rather cute) trash wheels are pulling debris from the harbor before it flows into Chesapeake Bay. “Mr. Trash Wheel” (male) and “Professor Trash Wheel” (female with eyelashes) are solar and hydro-powered trash interceptors in place in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Over a million pounds of trash has been pulled out of the water by Mr. Trash Wheel since it was installed in May 2014 (Professor Trash Wheel was installed in December 2016).
John Kellett (a true ECO-HERO!) invented the trash wheels and tracks the debris collected. Since May 2014, when Mr Trash Wheel went operational, almost nine million cigarette butts and over 300,000 plastic bags have been collected. Additionally, Mr. Trash Wheel picks up an average of 14,000 Styrofoam containers a month – second only to cigarettes.
Kellett echoes Jana’s thoughts that the problem starts on shore. “I thought we were being ambitious with the harbor, but now people are talking about cleaning up the ocean,” Kellett said. “But I think the most effective solution is to get the trash before it gets there.”
No matter where you live, you CAN make a difference and help protect our natural resources. Let’s review some simple steps we can all take:
What do I hope will happen? I look forward to the day that Mr. Trash Wheel and Professor Trash Wheel are forced to take days off because there is no debris for them to clean up!
If you are ready to make a difference, text HERO to 305-720-7245 and we’ll send you an “Eco-Hero” tote bag – just like the ones Jana carries with her and also uses at boat shows. It’s Jana’s gift to you – from Jana and our team at 1-800 Yacht Charters!

Her celebrity owner used the yacht all summer. On-again/off-again Mediterranean yacht charter superyacht SEVEN SEAS heads to the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show. The show is September 21 through 24.
The spectacular 86 meter (280 ft) Oceanco motor yacht SEVEN SEAS has been in the news throughout the summer. Steven Speilberg owned yacht hosted family and celebrity friends, for instance, Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Contemporary styling and modern lines define this elegant yacht. To illustrate, she boasts extraordinary interior volume. Her beam is 14.20 meters. Oceanco motor yacht SEVEN SEAS features accommodations for twelve guests. Accommodations include four large guest suites and two luxurious VIP suites.
Oceanco’s signature infinity swimming pool is on the aft deck. It can be conveniently transformed into a helipad. A favorite innovative highlight of 1-800 Yacht Charters’ President, Jana Sheeder on Seven Seas, is a projector. This throws an image up onto the aft glass wall of the pool. It allows guests to watch movies while swimming or on the quay.
The owner has an iconic role in American cinema. He highlights in through his yacht. For example, the main salon has a professional projection system and a 5 x 2 meter screen. These are coupled with two rows of raked seating. The seating can transform into a screening theater. Next to the main salon is a 250m² area. To illustrate, it can host everything from casual al fresco dining to a black-tie Cannes Film Festival gala.
The yacht has an extensive list of amenities. For instance, a custom enclosed 10.5 meter limo tender and custom 9.2 meter open sport boat are watertoys.
Oceanco is proud to present this magnificent yacht. Her presence at the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show is welcome. Her berth number is slip R01. Above all, visits on board will be by invitation only.
