We are pleased to announce that Contact Yachts has three yachts registered to attend the MYBA's Pop-up Show in Montenegro this year!

Brokers planning on making the trip to Montenegro for the show will be able to view three of Contact Yachts’ most popular luxury charter yachts: the sailing yacht, DAIMA, the motor-sailing yacht, BLUE EYES and the luxury gulet, KIRKE.

These three yachts will be available for inspection from the morning of the 2nd of September at the stylish "Porto Montenegro” and will remain at the show until its conclusion on the 4th of September. The luxury charter yacht, DAIMA is currently based in Croatia and Montenegro and has been doing very well this summer, her design offering a winning trilogy of comfort, grace and performance. BLUE EYES is also based in Croatia and Montenegro this summer… with great testimonials having been received for the fine work that her outstanding crew of 8 are doing year in and year out: this is a luxury charter yacht with a Turkish crew who have been with the yacht for many years and deliver a service par excellence. Motor-sailing yacht, KIRKE, with owner-operators Menderes and Sigrid on board also requires no introduction, this gulet having been established as one of the best charter gulets available in the Eastern Mediterranean. For the summer of 2016, KIRKE has joined the fleet in the Ionian and Croatia.

All three luxury vessels are incredibly well suited to the cruising grounds on offer in the Adriatic and the Ionian — and all look very handsome set against the magnificent backdrop that is Montenegro! Their crew have enjoyed getting to know the area over the last few years and we would assure all brokers that their knowledge of these cruising grounds is very thorough. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Christmas of 2016

Before Christmas of 2015 even arrives, perhaps you could consider making 2016 the year to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime trip over the sea on a fully-crewed yacht…. as a Christmas charter is the way to go if you enjoy being on the sea, but want to completely relax and take things easy. Your crew will attend to all of the details, including roast turkey with all the trimmings if you so wish! … and you’ll have nothing to do at all… except take an additional swim, stroll along a beach, and perhaps cast a line over the side. A Christmas charter makes perfect sense — there’s something to entertain everyone, and then there’s gourmet meals to keep up your stamina: what could be more enjoyable?

Crewed Yacht Charters - experience true freedom

So many folks spend their holidays by the sea, exploring an entire coast. This works just fine, although packing up and leaving a hotel or motel can become rather tedious! Imagine unpacking just once and cruising from bay to bay for a week or 10 days… just relaxing, contemplating your choices for the day.. and not concerning yourself with anything as mundane as cooling off a hot car yet again. This is the kind of holiday where each morning will see you in a perfectly quiet setting, anchored off a pristine beach with overhanging coconut palms, and each evening will see you moored in a small harbour, where you can take a tender boat ride ashore to do some exploring. All this is do-able, so long as you have hired a crewed yacht, and have made that choice to be barefoot for as long as you possibly can. The sense of freedom achieved by chartering a crewed yacht has to be experienced, and soon becomes a new kind of pursuit.

Attending the MYBA Charter Show 2017

contact-yachts-attending-the-myba-charter-show-2017-001

One of the most prestigious shows in the world of yachting has just concluded: the Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association (MYBA) Charter Show was held in Barcelona from April 24 to 27 and was deemed a resounding success.

It’s the first time that the show has been held on the Spanish coast and Barcelona really turned on her best with show participants being treated to the very finest Spanish hospitality.

The 29th MYBA Charter Show welcomed participants at one of the most luxurious ports in Europe, a world class marina named “OneOcean Port Vell". Its ultra-modern mega yacht moorings became a comfortable business hub by day and the venue for much networking and socialising by night.

Last summer, the MYBA announced that the 2017 charter show would take place in the Spanish port of Barcelona. Considering that Italy’s Genoa had been the venue for the show for the past 16 years, this decision understandably sparked much interest.

Representatives of the world’s leading yacht charter companies had a chance to inspect the yachts, meet the crew and get an appreciation of the yacht’s own brand of service presentation; and with the 2017 summer season fast approaching, the timing is spot-on. In a similar way, brokers and industry representatives were able to familiarise themselves with what is newly available in the way of industry-related services.

The MYBA allows industry professionals to see an encompassing array of mega yachts available for luxury charter. It’s a fundamental element in the process of familiarisation for brokers and agents... before they talk with their clients about their next luxury charter vacation, most of the potential questions have already been answered. A brochure only goes so far in providing that kind of confidence.

Seventy luxurious yachts went on display this time, and among them, the luxury mega yacht, “Ramble On Rose” captured everyone’s attention. This beauty has an expansive sundeck and was well photographed during the show. Likewise, the motor yacht “Joy”, winner of this year’s Showboats Design Award for Best Exterior Design and Styling, was also caught in the lens; displayed, as she was, for the very first time in Barcelona.

Even though professional brokers and yachts’ crew were gathered to talk business, the festive atmosphere didn’t leave the quay for a minute. And despite cloudy weather and occasional rain, nothing could dim the mood. Everyone’s good cheer and enthusiasm made for an upbeat show.

Participants particularly enjoyed the fifth MYBA Superyacht Chefs’ Competition, with first prize in the 55 meter and over category going to talented chef, Dean Conbeer of the motor yacht “Icon”.

At 17:00 hours on the final evening, all participating yachts sounded their air horns in unison, marking the end of what has come to be known as one of the most memorable events on the Superyacht calendar. It was raining at that time, but even so, the experience of being engulfed by a sea of trumpeting horns was enough to rouse the emotions.

Barcelona and OneOcean Port Vell were so well received by brokers and members of the luxury charter yacht industry that the MYBA Charter Show is set to be held there for two more years. Ole!
