Antibes is known by many as the ‘hub of the yachting industry’, so having a yacht show in Antibes, at the heart of yachting, makes perfect sense. Started in 2007, the Antibes Yacht Show is the first of it’s kind on the Mediterranean. It provides yacht owners an opportunity to sell yachts and also gives information to people who want to hire a yacht charter. It is the place for professionals in the industry to meet at the start of the season, normally held at the end of April. It is held on the renowned billionaires quay in Port Vauban and gives buyers and sellers a chance to fulfill their dreams or sell their yachts. Last year, the 2012 Antibes Yacht Show had over 13,000 visitors from 65 countries. There are 3 main activities in the Antibes yacht show:
Yacht brokerage is the main aim of the show; giving yachts for sale much exposure and allowing sellers meet interested, potential buyers. The brokerage area of the show in 2013 will focus on selling the yachts through the new live auction and also giving broker and charter companies an opportunity to meet potential clients. The Antibes Yacht show gives owners a chance to meet potential buyers and show their yacht, in it’s best glory, to the possible yacht buyers in attendance.
Yacht Charter Antibes, at the Antibes yacht show is where the show reveals what type of yacht charter is available to those who are looking to charter a yacht for their holidays or event. Both the brokerage and yacht charter displays at the Antibes Yacht Show go hand in hand as many of the yachts that are sold will be available for yacht charter in the future.
Yacht Refit and Services
The other area of the show, which is important for crew members and professionals in the yachting industry is the refit and services section. Many companies are present, displaying everything from sunglasses, crew uniforms, wine suppliers, yacht painters and more, allowing crew to meet with vital potential suppliers before the season kicks off on the Med.
