Playing around with FunAir at MYS 2017

FunAir traditionally inflate the Fun each year at Monaco Yacht Show and launch something new to the superyacht toy market. This year they will be showcasing the new FunAir Playground and Junior BigAir Blob.

A redesign of a firm family favourite, the FunAir Playground has a slide, climbing frame and leaving off point for a smaller version of the very popular BigAir Blob, which like its big brother has stabilising outriggers that stop it turning in the ocean, and an inflatable stand-off that keeps it in place. Friends and siblings can jump from the playground straight onto the blob and launch their partners into the air.

FunAir Playground Junior BigAir Blob

The Playground can be tethered to the yacht out at anchor, and also works as the perfect accessory for families when it is secured in shallower waters on beach days.

Standing 3.5m tall when inflated, the playground has non-slip material on the steps and top, comfort grip climbing holds and ultra slick vinyl on the slide. This eliminates the need for a coversheet and reduces weight and pack size. The Junior Big Air Blob is also made from commercial grade 1000 denier PVC with FR and UV ratings. Total set up time is just 30 minutes.

John Courtney, MD of Yachting commented, “Part of the reason we work hard on developing our innovation partnerships is to make sure we get regular feedback on our existing products, what the owners, guests and crew would like to see in the future, what affects the use of our products and where we can improve everyone’s yachting experience.

“The Playground was developed because of our partnership with Titan Fleet who needed a durable playground that was robust and could be used by kids large and small. We redesigned it to make it lighter, taller and more stable. Combining the Playground with our Junior BigAir Blob gave Titan Fleet the perfect activity centre for their fleet of charter yachts.”

The redesigned FunAir Playground with Junior BigAir Blob will be on the water, displayed outside the official MYS Captains and Crew Lounge next to the Yacht Club throughout Monaco Yacht Show 2017.

MONACO YACHT SUMMIT 2017 The guide for new potential superyacht clients

Press release – September 21, 2017

 

This September 26, the 2nd annual Monaco Yacht Summit welcomes new potential superyacht clients – or their reps – to discuss the current issues about first-time charter or purchase of luxury yachts.

Qualified participants will be guided through the daunting processes of Purchase, Charter and Management. New to the 2017 programme is the inclusion of table talks on Design and Crew.

 

PURCHASE

The Purchase & Finance table talk will inspire with a yacht owner’s personal experience, unbiased insight and also provide the tools to determine what advice is required for the process.

Speakers: Ken Judge, Robb Mass, Anouch Sedef

CHARTER

The Charters table talk explores cruising regulations, tax and customs implications, insurance from the owner’s perspective as well as crucial details for the charterer’s consideration.

Speakers: Freddy Desplanques, Sophia Tutino

MANAGEMENT

This important table talk focuses on the importance of yacht managers; their role in safety, compliance, asset protection and cost reduction. Successful management can be measured by the workload it relieves the owner.

Speakers: Xavier Lamadrid, Jonathan Watson

DESIGN

New to the 2017 Monaco Yacht Summit Programme, the future evolution of design will stimulate discussion about creating yachts as “investments” and how design contributes to the success of the yacht on the charter market and later influences its resale value.

Speakers: Laura Pomponi, Stefano Pastrovitch

CREW

Also new at the 2017 event, the Crew table talk will address issues of interest and concern for Owners and Charterers such as employment contracts, crew selection and management as well as social security.

Speakers: John Cook, Charles Dugas-Standish

The subjects will be discussed in a casual ambiance to enable an effortless flow of dialogue.

If you are interested in either the first-time purchase or charter of a yacht and are new to the yachting industry, you are welcome to apply for your participation by emailing concierge@monacoyachtshow.mc.

If you wish to appoint your personal assistant or family office representative to attend on your behalf, please advise concierge@monacoyachtshow.mc.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exclusive and informative programme.

Monaco Yacht Show Superyacht Tenders and Toys

Monaco Yacht Show launches Tenders & Toys: A new exhibition devoted to superyacht tenders and toys

Visitors to the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show will discover a brand-new exhibition area devoted entirely to the trendiest luxury tenders and water toys on the market.

The creation of the Tenders & Toys zone at the 2017 Show is the MYS’ response to the yachting industry’s goal to attract a new, younger, superyacht clientele. Entertainment is one of the leading criteria in the selection of a yacht to buy or charter with the new generation of superyacht enthusiasts. 

Brokerage companies recognize that one of the criteria of a successful charter experience depends on the diversity of the leisure equipment and water toys available on board.

Located on Quai Albert Ier, Tenders & Toys will display fifteen or so tenders on two sites, one on the quay (in the extension of the Dutch HISWA pavilion) and the other on the water (opposite the Car Deck and the Starboard). Yacht owners, skippers and future clients will be able to choose their tenders from among the variety of products on view in Tenders & Toys. A wide range of tenders exists, with different characteristics for different functions – transfer to a marina, beaching on a wilder coastline, a gentle jaunt or a sportier outing – but the trend in the market is towards ever-larger boats offering performance and comfort equivalent to that of superyachts.

Tenders & Toys will thus raise the curtain on the elegant Mazu Yacht Thirtyeight, a 12m open launch for sea-going trips, or the latest Gozzo model from the Italian yard Apreamare, just introduced on 1 September. Maori Yachts will launch its new 17m tender whose ingenious design and superb performance should fulfil even the wildest dreams of its clients.

Cox Marine is coming with its new diesel engine, already hailed as a genuine revolution with a range three times greater than the average for conventional petrol engines. For its first participation in the Monaco Yacht Show Compass Tenders, double prizewinner at the Showboats Design Awards, will be highlighting its expertise in the manufacture to order of one-off tenders for superyachts. As for water toys, Tenders & Toys will present in particular a sea-kart, the new all-carbon version of which will be unveiled at the MYS, an electric surf board, and the very first underwater drone, along with a whole range of nautical accessories and inflatable structures for fun with friends or family.

The new Tenders & Toys zone will complement the range of tenders exhibited for some years already at the Monaco Yacht Show. Visitors can see another 21 tenders afloat on the Quai Jarlan, a private submarine by U-Boat Worx in the Darse Sud Plongeur zone or that of the American manufacturer Triton displayed at the entrance to the Parvis Piscine tent. And of course, two helicopters, the Agusta AW 169 (Tenders & Toys) and Bell Helicopter’s Bell 429 (entrance to the Parvis Piscine tent)!

The Starboard will also house the Show’s official Press centre (access restricted to accredited journalists) and Business centre with private meeting rooms (available only for exhibitors’ business meetings). A selection of yachting and lifestyle magazines will be freely available.

The Car Deck

Launched at last year’s MYS, the Car Deck will be set alongside the Starboard and present fifteen or so prestige vehicles, with some available for test drives by the Show’s premium clients.

The finest and cutting-edge prestige brands will be displayed including Aston Martin, Automobili Lamborghini, Bentley, Elemental Cars, Hoffmann & Novague, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, Shelby by Gentleman Car.

The Holland Pavilion

HISWA, one of the longest-standing exhibiting federations at the Monaco Yacht Show, will again raise the flag of the Dutch superyacht industry with their Holland Pavilion. Eight exhibiting companies will present their best know-how, expertise and high-end nautical products.

The reconfiguration of the Quai Antoine Ier exhibition area will create a new epicentre for activities at the Monaco Yacht Show and will stand as a new milestone in the development of the Monaco Yacht Show since 1991.
