Unforgettable Beach Days with FunAir at Monaco Yacht Show

In addition to the adrenaline pumping FunAir Yacht Slides, Climbing Walls and other superyacht toys built for action and adventure, FunAir also know exactly how to relax….. 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.

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.

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.

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.”

Varied and easy to obtain food and drinks options are part of the plan, with emphasis on quality and convenience. 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.

One of the Windward VIP Club’s attractive benefits was the dedicated concierge team, Delmay and Partners, who worked on behalf of VIP passholders to arrange various services including yacht tours, local dining reservations, private transportation and other conveniences.
  
“The 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show brought an increase in visits to our displays and enabled us to enter into many strong negotiations and a number of sales,” said Randy Coleman, vice president of sales of Ferretti Group America. “Fort Lauderdale continues to be an important show for Ferretti Group as we see great attendance from our US-based clients as well as an increase in visitors from South America. Our South American dealers were very pleased with the outcome and recognize the importance of attending this show.”

Porto Mirabello superyacht marina

A Season of Success for Porto Mirabello, La Spezia, Italy.

Still a relatively new marina, built out of the sea in 2010, Porto Mirabello is enjoying a very busy and successful summer season in 2017.

This year they have noticed a marked increase in seasonal transits hosting 55 % more superyachts in 2017 compared to the previous year.  As the only dedicated luxury marina for superyachts up to 130m in Italy, many of the most exclusive yachts have stayed at the port in the last few months including MY Savannah, MY Main, MY Grace E, MY BookEnds, MY Just J’s, MY Achillies, MY Emuna, MY Romea, MY Samar and MY Serenity.

Owner of the marina, Alessandro Menozzi commented, “We have worked hard to ensure our marina has all the services and facilities needed for busy yachts. We make life easy for Captains who visit the marina, providing a 7* multilingual concierge team who will solve any problem, and help to make staying at the marina the preferred choice for every yacht.

Our Wellness Centre, 11 restaurants and bars, 25m swimming pool, private BBQ terrace and gourmet food delivery service mean that crew can facilitate a quick turn over between charters, and find time to relax in the marina.”

 

Porto Mirabello, Poets Lounge Terrace

 

Location plays an important role in deciding which port to visit, whether you are a charter or private vessel. Porto Mirabello, in La Spezia is in the middle of a city full of cultural highlights, and next to the most prestigious locations in Italy such as Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio and Portofino. Porto Venere is just 2NM, Forte Marmi a short car journey and you can be in Milan in 45 minutes from the helicopter pad. The marina, nestled in the Gulf of Poets, is also among the most sheltered in the world.

Security has been an important factor in why more yachts have stayed at Porto Mirabello. The team has achieved the approval of the Port Facility Security Plan, which is necessary for the alignment of the harbour structure for the International Ship and Port Facilities Security Code certification. This means the marina has greater control measures in place for access to areas intended to host yachts greater than 500 tons, and owners and Captains can enjoy a completely private space in the Megayacht Quay and Poets Lounge and Terrace.

Porto Mirabello offers a unique combination of an elegant, clean and luxurious marina with top level superyacht services, packaged with the convenience of having a dedicated shipyard on site, and the back up of 80% of the most important Italian shipyards within 22 NM of the port.
