Corporate Charters with Camper & Nicholsons
In an ever-more competitive world, finding new ways to impress clients and reward or inspire staff can be challenging. Fortunately, at Camper & Nicholsons we have perfected the art of organising prestigious and innovative hospitality and corporate events.
With such a variety of luxury yachts available, based across the world, the choices are endless and destinations far and wide. The preference might be a smaller motor or sail yacht for team-building events on board the likes of Whispering Angel and Aqua Libra or to get involved in a sailing regattas such as the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, Voiles de St. Tropez or the chic St. Barths Bucket on board award-winning yachts to include Silencio, Parsifal IV or Highland Breeze. For the more adventurous, an Atlantic Ocean crossing on board an award-winning sailing yacht like Parsifal III is the ultimate trip of a lifetime.
To create a truly unique impact with a cocktail party for a large number of guests aboard one of the world’s ultimate superyachts, Christina O couldn't be more impressive, to something different for up to 100 guests on board Atlantic Goose or QM of London. Whatever the requirements, our dedicated specialists are at hand to help come up with the ultimate experience on board. These can often be organised around event charters such as the F1 Grand Prix be it in Monaco or Abu-Dhabi, the Cannes Film Festival or static charters to include conventions at the Cannes Palais de Festival for the likes of MIPIM and MIDEM or further afield in the beautiful settings of the Caribbean.
Among our team of experienced Charter Brokers, Suzette McLaughlin and Barbara Dawson both have years of experience dealing with clients who use yachts for corporate entertaining purposes. These have included arranging a tandem sailing yacht program with 10 yachts in the Mediterranean while combining a few days at a luxury resort, or a fleet of catamarans for an entire week in the Caribbean.
More recently McLaughlin helped arrange a much bigger corporate enquiry involving a cruise for a major Russian corporation on board the boutique cruise ship, 134m (440’) Wind Star. “Even though the yachts in our fleet cater for most needs, there are also instances where a client’s requirements exceed the capacity that we can provide for. Providing a boutique cruise ship as was the case with Wind Star to accommodate up to 148 guests was a great alternative and whatever the number, we can always find a way. The charter was a huge success that included stops at the ever-popular ports along the Côte d’Azur for entertainment, dining and even a classic car rally to the beautiful Provence area. With the right yacht and a mix of creativity, even the most discerning charterer leaves feeling content.”
Another unforgettable corporate charter organised by Dawson was for a leading brewery involving winners of a national advertising campaign who were flown to Fiji, all expenses paid to experience a once in a lifetime New Year’s Eve charter to the International date line. Guests were treated to not one, but two New Year celebrations and were left in awe at the extent of the experience.
These are just some examples of how Camper & Nichoslons’ retail brokers think outside the box to cater for their client’s needs. It is a true testimony of the diversity that our brokers bring to the table when making recommendations to clients not only for their private charters but for their corporate requirements as well.
