The Luxury Charter Group began this year’s Charter Yacht Show circuit in Genoa, 27 to 30 April 2015, at the 27th MYBA Charter Show in Genoa, Italy.This trade only show is exclusively for MYBA Members – accredited charter professionals in good standing with their peers and the proactive industry association. Considered a 'must-do' event, the Genoa show is attended by Europe's top fleet of luxury charter yachts, Captains and crews and international charter professionals keen to appraise them.
Jeni Tidmarsh has been attending the Genoa show for more than 15 years, and considers it a vital part of her role as adviser to her global retinue of clients. "The show is important for us to immerse ourselves in the look and feel of each yacht – and this year there were close to 60 vessels. We take into account the décor, ambience, styling, cuisine onboard, the yacht's specialties, the skills of the Crew, their ethos, which all contributes to the point of difference of each yacht."
In a year, the Luxury Charter Group Team of Jeni, Sharon and Radek each inspects 400 or so boats, "so charter yacht shows are crucial for us to update our knowledge and refresh our ties with Captains, crews and yacht managers".
In four days in Genoa, the Luxury Charter Group Team inspected all the boats on show, and after hours, the networking continued with a full program of social activities, adding to the complete picture of yachts and their capabilities.
Especially impressive in 2015 were the motor yachts THUMPER, a custom-designed Sunseeker 40M Yacht with an impeccable 'Hamptons-style' interior suited to 10 charter guests in absolute luxury, and PERSEUS^3, the new 60m Perini Navi performance sailing superyacht with one of the tallest carbon fibre masts ever built and exquisitely appointed throughout for the ultimate charter experience.
After Genoa, Jeni and her Team inspected a selection of luxury charter yachts available in Greece at the Mediterranean Charter Yacht Show in Nafplion, followed by the Marmaris Yacht Charter Show, Turkey.
Next on the calendar for this energetic team of charter professionals are the European Yacht Shows in September and US/Caribbean shows in November/ December. US-based Sharon Bahmer will be attending the BVI Charter Show, followed by the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Radek, based in Europe, will attend Cannes and Monaco Yacht Shows, and the "The A-Team" will meet up again in Antigua in early December for the annual Antigua Charter Yacht Show, the largest and most important of the year.
"We spend a great deal of time travelling and inspecting yachts," explains Jeni. "It's such an important part of our commitment to gaining first-hand insight so we are best-informed to advise our clients with confidence, and match and endorse their perfect charter yacht. With this experience and knowledge we can create the ideal charter climate for our clients that ensures a brilliant experience all-round – from the time of their first enquiry, to the minute they step aboard, to arriving home with memories to last a life-time."
