Exceptional Benefits for Yachts Attending the 2022 Caribbean Charter Yacht Show

As the boat show season fast approaches in the Med, the Caribbean Charter Yacht Show in St. Thomas is only a matter of months away and exciting plans for the second edition are already well underway.

Following a successful inaugural event last year, the 2022 Caribbean Charter Yacht Show, hosted by IGY Marinas in partnership with IYBA, will take place at Yacht Haven Grande from 8-11 December, with the valued support of USVI Tourism returning as the headline sponsor.

Running from Friday to Monday to allow greater flexibility with travel arrangements, participants will also have access to complimentary transfers to and from hotels throughout the show.

With an expanded format and greater numbers anticipated this year, participants can look forward to a highly productive event with a true Caribbean vibe showcasing local cuisine and entertainment as well as opportunities to experience the local area and cruising grounds on the show’s Destination Day on 12 December.

This year’s event will also feature a new tenders and toys section that will include a beautiful 42’ tender presented by Solace, and an exciting in-water demonstration of all the latest toys to give your vessel the edge in charters for water sports fans. 

Reasons to exhibit your yacht at the Caribbean Charter Yacht Show

With low registration fees, competitive dockage rates and no minimum stay, visiting yachts will enjoy a warm welcome and excellent service during the show. A full refund is also available until 1 November should your vessel’s plans suddenly change.

With confirmed attendance from a number of top international charter brokers, easy access for viewings and the option to host broker lunches and yacht hops will ensure ample opportunities for captains and crew to showcase their capabilities.

There will also be plenty of opportunities for networking away from the boat with highlights including an exclusive captains’ dinner and a party for all the hardworking crew to unwind on the final night.

To support your investment in the show, all attending vessels will be listed on the show website and IYBA’s YachtBroker.org. All yachts will also  receive a complimentary yacht profile on the charter marketing platform SuperyachtStories.com for a full 12 months with social media exposure across multiple platforms.
