Unforgettable Beach Days with FunAir at Monaco Yacht Show

In partnership with the beach days theme at the official Captains and Crew Lounge at Monaco Yacht Show this year, FunAir will be launching three new to market products, perfect for an unforgettable superyacht beach experience.

Outside the Lounge on Quay Louis II visitors will be able to find the new Twin Escape floating on the water. Two detachable beach loungers sit on a stable platform that can float out in the shallows to enhance any beach excursion. The Twin Escape is 3.5m x 3m when deployed and comes with their patented Sea Stairs that help you elegantly step right out of the water and onto the relaxing Escape. Perfect for sunbathing, enjoying time with friends, or perhaps a private chat with drinks out on the ocean.

FunAir Twin Escape

If you like to feel the sand between your toes then you can detach the loungers for beach use and pair them with the second new MYS products launch; the Wave Lounger. FunAir have redesigned their superyacht beach lounger and created a unique, ergonomic flow that is stylish, eye-catching and comfortable. The inflatable Wave Loungers take just a couple of minutes to inflate and deflate, and allow crew to pack multiple loungers on even the smallest tender, making beach set up for larger groups quick and easy. The Wave Loungers can be colour customised and have optional luxury fitted covers available through a FunAir partner. They weigh just 10kg and are around 2.2m long and 85cm wide.

FunAir Wave Loungers

For the starfish amongst you the third product launching at MYS gives you even more space to sit back and beach out. The FunAir Daybed is a double width inflatable beach lounger that can accommodate couples in love, a hoard of kids or give those who like to sunbathe in style all the space they need to stretch out and starfish.

FunAir Inflatable Loungers beach set up

The day bed is an easy to lift 17kg and is 230cm long and 158cm wide. Also available in custom colours and with luxury fitted covers. The Wave loungers and Daybed will be on display outside the Captain and Crew Lounge during Monaco Yacht Show on the dock next to the on-water Twin Escape.

Visitors to the show are invited to come and try out the beach set up for themselves and to experience what total beach comfort really feels like. Captains and crew can also chill out on two loungers stationed upstairs in the private crew lounge where they will be complimenting the interior beach themed space.

ENHANCEMENTS PLANNED FOR 59TH ANNUAL FORT LAUDERDALE BOAT SHOW

As the guests arrive at the 59th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), an array of changes to form and function will offer a fresh approach to enjoying the largest in-water boat show in the world and an even more successful sales environment for exhibitors.

One of the most noteworthy changes to the 2018 show, set to take place October 31 to November 4, is the redesign and repositioning of the main entrance several hundred yards to the north end of the Bahia Mar Hotel and Marina property, along Seabreeze Boulevard, just south of the International Swimming Hall of Fame and Marina. The brand new, professionally designed entrance will feature a plaza-like configuration, efficient security and a VIP and exhibitor gate. The previous main entrance will be used for exhibitor move-in, move-out and other show logistics, improving access for both show guests and exhibitors.

“Informa is focused on evaluating the overall show experience and how FLIBS is perceived by people who arrive from many different places and spend time at the show each day,” said Informa U.S. Boat Shows General Manager Andrew Doole. “First impressions are crucial, which is why we are creating a professionally designed, dedicated show entrance with a thoughtful layout and other elements of convenience for guests and exhibitors.”

A new culinary provider will offer fresh, farm-to-plate fruits and vegetables, sustainable seafood, and natural, organic meats through partnerships with purveyors of locally-sourced, organic and sustainable products.

“Wherever you are in the show, and whether you want to grab a cold drink, a snack or a gourmet meal, we want it to be easy and satisfying,” added Doole.

Miami Beach’s Premier Luxury Yacht Show Receives  New Name and Logo

30th Annual Event Rebranded from Yachts Miami Beach to Miami Yacht Show;

Slated for February 15-19 along Collins Avenue

MIAMI, Fla. (November 15, 2017) – The premier in-water luxury yacht exhibition during Miami’s annual boat show week each February has received a new name and look. Formerly Yachts Miami Beach, the annual event is being rebranded as the Miami Yacht Show on Collins Avenue. 

Set to take place from February 15-19 in Miami Beach along Collins Avenue across from the legendary Fontainebleau and Eden Roc hotels, the show, now entering its 30th year, attracts a global audience to a spectacular display of yachts and marine products, including more than 500 new and brokerage yachts and a wide array of the latest marine technology and accessories.

Spanning more than a mile along the Indian Creek Waterway from 41st Street to 54th Street, the extraordinary yacht show covers more than 1.2 million square feet of space. In addition to the amazing display of yachts and accessories, the show features floating cocktail lounges, food and live musical entertainment.

“Like all leading global brands, this show is constantly evolving and adapting to best serve its audience,” said Mary Bender, vice president of marketing for Informa, the show’s producer and co-owner. “The new name and logo were designed to follow suit with our portfolio of boat shows. We worked collaboratively with our stakeholders throughout the process and expect the new brand to be well received in the yachting community.”

A new Miami Yacht Show website will debut this fall at MiamiYachtShow.com, along with the launch of Boat Show Market Place, a new online platform designed to allow attendees to more easily plan their visit to the show and schedule appointments with the exhibitors they most want to see. The new site will be fully optimized for mobile browsing.

The new website builds upon improvements introduced at last year’s boat show, including a new physical look and layout that delivered a more interactive and inviting sales experience and environment for guests and exhibitors. Show organizers also introduced a VIP Experience ticket that offers guests who wish to experience the show in celebrity style access to a floating, air-conditioned lounge with a premium open bar, gourmet food, a dedicated concierge to arrange appointments on board yachts and other special experiences.

In addition to its iconic Collins Avenue location, the Miami Yacht Show also includes an invite-only satellite display of superyachts on Watson Island at the Island Gardens Deep Harbour marina, which can accommodate yachts up to 500 feet. Yacht brokers can arrange transportation for clients between the two show locations.

Two different boat shows take place in Miami and Miami Beach during Presidents’ Day weekend in February. Informa manages and produces the Miami Yacht Show on Collins Avenue and co-owns it with the International Yacht Brokers Association. The event runs concurrently with the Miami International Boat Show, which is owned and operated by the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

“Captains and crew are integral to the refit process in any shipyard,” said Jim Miller, Refit Show director. “Providing them with the communication, management and teamwork skills offered by Bluewater will improve their efficiency, making them more valuable to yacht owners and their representatives.”

Kevin Petrovsky, chief academic officer at Bluewater, said, “The refit process involves a wide variety of expertise and experience that must be well organized and coordinated. This seminar series is designed not only to provide an overview of the process, but to provide practical and tangible guidance at each stage of the process.”

FunAir Announces Partnership with Sealed Air Repairs

FunAir Announces Partnership with Sealed Air Repairs Mobile Service Centre for Superyacht Inflatables

Florida
As the global leader in manufacturing inflatable yacht toys, FunAir continue to innovate and ahead of the winter season have announced a partnership with Sealed Air Repairs who opened a Florida based mobile service centre for all inflatable yacht toys earlier this year.

SAR has a mobile service centre that will cover the Floridian coastline offering to pick up your toys and make sure they are clean, dry and ready to inflate the fun, before dropping them back to the yacht. For larger jobs and when working on the biggest inflatables Sealed Air Repairs will collect the product and take it back to their headquarters where the toys can be laid out, inspected and worked on in a clean and secure environment.

The service centers offer a great solution for busy charter yachts who don’t have time to fully clean and maintain their toys, or superyachts about to have a refit who want to make sure they are professionally cleaned, dried, packed and stored before yard time.

In this first season SAR have reported that there have been a surprising number of simple maintenance tasks on the books. It seems there are many yachts that have favourite inflatable yacht toys that have sat in storage because they had lost a couple of D rings, or the guide ropes had gone missing. People just didn’t know where to go to get this servicing, parts and maintenance work carried out; but also didn’t want to throw away a product that had given them so much enjoyment.

John Courtney, MD of yachting at FunAir explained, “We are pleased to announce that Sealed Air Repairs will be our official service centre for the Fort Lauderdale and East coast yachting community. Their online parts store is one of a kind and very convenient for people who have misplaced accessories over the years. Their servicing is of the highest quality and we are happy to leave any maintenance tasks that the yachts prefer to outsource, in the capable hands of SAR.”

Mark Anastasia, founder of SAR commented, “ We are excited to be the first mobile service center for yacht toys and have already had an overwhelming response in this first season. From cleaning and servicing top of the range inflatables to make sure they last for years to come, to repairing some of the lower quality items that have found their way into the superyacht sphere, we have been extremely busy since our launch. “

“Being part of this crazy team is a privilege. Every day during the ride there is a situation that will tug at the heartstrings. The wonderful camaraderie amongst the riders and team, never letting anyone get left behind, the encouragement half way up a steep climb, the laughs, the drink and food stops where we all get so well fed and watered and the mandatory joking around at the end of the day makes it very special.”

The riders will also be supported by a team of experienced osteopaths from the European School of Osteopath who will be ‘on hand’ to provide deep tissue treatments and holistic care whenever needed.

Completing the support team, the De Keizer Marine family van will be along for the ride supporting the riders all the way to Antibes.
