Newport Charter Yacht Show (NCYS)
20th - 23rd June 2022
Brokers and managers, captains and crews, sponsors and exhibitors – it’s hard to say who gets more out of the Newport Charter Yacht Show presented by Helly Hansen.
The only one of its kind in the U.S., is a trade-only show staged in June each year by owner and organizer Newport Shipyard at its well-appointed 10-acre facility on Newport's waterfront.
The Show buzzes with activity - featuring 24 world class yachts and attended by charter yacht brokers and industry professionals. There were informational gatherings on industry progress and American Yacht Charter Association Seminars - vendors, suppliers and show sponsors to meet too.
The Chef's Competition, Tablescaping, Speciality Cocktails and Designer Water Competitions focused on "Sustainable Luxury" - a global topic and hugely important focus in yachting now and in the future.
“It’s the kind of show where you can spend quality time with the crews; it’s more intimate than some of the others,” said June Montagne of Ocean Independence in Ft. Lauderdale. “The quality of boats is high; it’s well organized, and participation is great.”
She mentioned the American Yacht Charter Association’s signature seminar held on Thursday in combination with that organization’s Annual Meeting. It featured guest speakers and roundtable discussions covering far-reaching subjects; “Breakfast talks” also were held each morning to highlight a specific subject.
Charter Manager Nick Duke of IYC in Fort Lauderdale represented two boats in the show: the motor yacht (M/Y) Independence III, a 111’ Broward that was built in 1997 and refit in 2017, and M/Y Enterprise, a brand-new 86’ Sunseeker.
The latter, with four crew including a French American Chef, is on the smaller side of typical charter yachts, and as such it was important to have it in the show, according to Duke.
For the former, he said it was important to show how the boat has been fully updated. “In my case as a charter manager, the brokers themselves are the clients. IYC’s product is the boat, the crew and the cruising location. It has been busy; we’ve had a lot of movement, a lot of positive feedback, especially since neither boat had been here before.”Read more
