Exciting new partnership between FunAir and Seal Superyachts

An exciting new partnership has been announced between innovative leaders FunAir and Seal Superyachts, the most established and longest serving yacht agents in Asia and the Pacific.

The deal will allow Seal Superyachts to supply a full compliment of custom FunAir yacht inflatables and 23 in stock QuickShip solutions for any last minute charter requests. Seal are hailed as the charter brokers best friend, and they will now be able to provide Climbing Walls, Yacht Slides, Yacht Golf, Beach Loungers and a host of products that will fit most mid range superyachts that are so prevalent in the area.

Seal will also be an official FunAir service centre and will provide cleaning, drying and maintenance servicing for all FunAir products. Seal can arrange to pick up the inflatables and make sure they are clean, dry and ready to inflate the fun before dropping them back to the yacht. This service is perfect for yachts that perhaps don’t deploy their toys for longer periods during off season, or when the owners are away and want to make sure they are packed and stored correctly.

Adam Frost, Managing Director of Seal Superyachts commented, “The charter market in and around the Pacific and Indian Oceans and Australasia continues to strengthen. There has also been a rise in European yachts visiting the areas with a full compliment of toys and tenders.

“We’ve definitely noticed an upsurge in requests for Yacht Slides, Climbing Walls and other inflatable FunAir yacht toys from our resident yachts, and I put it down to them seeing the European yachts with all their toys out and wanting some of that action!

“The charter market is fast moving here as well, so being able to fulfil last minute requests and deliver the products they want in a week or so is an attractive solution for our clients.”

John Courtney, Managing Director of FunAir commented, “ We are delighted to welcome Adam and the team at Seal Superyachts to the FunAir family. We have worked together in the past when they have provided fantastic logistic support on some of our large custom orders being delivered in Asia.

“They are the perfect fit to represent the FunAir brand in this region and we are safe in the knowledge that FunAir products will be delivered and serviced, efficiently and effectively, meaning more time on the water having fun for the guests. What’s not to love!

Curated Beach day packages for superyachts launched at MYS 2019

A joint project between innovative leaders FunAir and Superyacht Tenders and Toys has seen the launch of three fully curated Beach day packages for superyachts at Monaco Yacht Show.

The project comes following an upsurge in orders from a number of popular charter yachts and brings together a wide range of products essential for providing guests with a 7* beach lifestyle when venturing ashore for the day.

The superyacht lifestyle now reaches past the rails of the yachts and onshore experiences and the yachts toy box have become increasingly important for charter guests and owners. There are so many elements to coordinate when creating the perfect beach experience and both FunAir and Superyacht Tenders and Toys have received many enquiries from yachts seeking a beach day package including everything from luxury shade options and tiki torches to inflatable furniture and water toys, robust BBQ solutions and music systems.

The three packages comprise of the Beach Club Day package, the Beach Club Experience package and the Beach Club Lifestyle package

Time is in short supply for superyacht captains and management companies, so FunAir and Superyacht Tenders and Toys worked together to curate the beach day packages for superyachts which combine everything the yachts need, without the headache of browsing through hundreds of options, and with the assurance that each item has been tried and tested to make sure it lives up to the quality that their superyacht clientele expect.

Superyacht Tenders & Toys launches eco-friendly watersports toy rental service in the Mediterranean

Leading independent tenders and toys consultancy expands European offering.

This month, Queen’s Award winner Superyacht Tenders & Toys (SYTT) has announced the opening of its new superyacht toys rental division in Monaco. The move comes in response to rising consumer demand and offers the company a base outside of the UK in the midst of uncertainty surrounding Brexit.

Open for business from spring 2019, the new department will specialise in eco-friendly rentals, including FunAir exclusive inflatables, RS sailing dinghies and electric toys such as the Seabob, Lift eFoil and bikes. Based in Monaco, SYTT’s rental service will be managed by Roxane Ducruet. Having worked in the yachting industry for a number of years, Roxane has a wealth of experience and a wide network of contacts having lived in Monaco her whole life.

SYTT managing director Josh Richardson commented, “With charter guests increasingly coming to SYTT to hire the latest and greatest watersports toys, investment into a Mediterranean rental outlet is the natural next step for the company.

“We have been supplying other rental operators throughout the Mediterranean for a long time, so it is a logical move to bring it in-house. By managing the rentals ourselves, we can offer clients our usual efficient service and ensure they get the best products at the best price.”

Josh continued, “Roxane is motivated, knowledgable and well-connected; she is a great fit for SYTT and we are delighted to welcome her to the team.”

SYTT will ensure competitive rates with broker-friendly pricing and credits towards future purchases with the aim of building a repeat-purchase customer base. One-way rentals will also be an option, with SYTT collecting the toys from the charter end destination.

SYTT sales agent Roxane Ducruet added, “ All the rental toys on offer are either electric or inflatable, which is not only better for the environment but they are also much more efficient to maintain versus petrol-powered toys. With our next-day shipping service, we will be able to offer a choice of toys delivered to anywhere in the Mediterranean at short notice.”

The portfolio of products available to hire includes Seabobs, Lift eFoil boards, Radinn Jetboards, RS sailing dinghies, yacht slides and a selection of in-stock inflatables from leading superyacht specialists FunAir. Stand-out toys on offer also include Yacht Golf, Yacht Joust and inflatable sailboats.

Our in-stock inflatables regularly assist charter vessels with last minute requests from guests, now they will be able to rent or buy a full toy box from Roxane and the team which is fantastic.”

In addition to watersports toys, SYTT has a fleet of Nautique boats for rental worldwide. From April, a new Super Air Nautique 210 will be available for central Mediterranean charter, which comes in addition to two G23s in the Greece and Ibiza areas.
