Taking into account the high levels of interest and activity during the recent run of autumn boat shows, Camper & Nicholsons are delighted to report on a positive end to the show season.
Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes
Crowds of yacht enthusiasts went in their droves to get a look at over 500 yachts being shown during the week of the Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes in September. Camper & Nicholsons displayed 14 yachts in the Brokerage section, ranging from 24m to 47m in length and between €595,000 and €19,800,000 in price. This substantial contribution to the show was unrivalled and left both clients and competitors suitably impressed. As well as a superior exhibition line-up, our brokers paced the jetties, arranging private visits to the yachts and organising VIP services for clients. The Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes has established itself over the years as a must-visit show for potential buyers, a success that Camper & Nicolsons mirrored in all but taking over the Brokerage section this year.
Monaco Yacht Show
Between 19 – 22 September this year, Camper & Nicholsons displayed some of the best yachts for sale the market has to offer at the Monaco Yacht Show. With a line-up of 16 impressive yachts on show we also hosted a number of eagerly awaited cocktail events, including the Yacht Club de Monaco gathering on the eve of the show’s opening, in association with the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board, CNM and J Craft. This iconic setting marked the start of a successful autumn season, initiating a particularly busy sales season in Europe.
Despite Hurricane Sandy passing close by, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October remained a great success, welcoming a vast selection of luxury yachts and attracting some serious buyers. Camper & Nicholsons displayed some of the best line-ups throughout the show, resulting in a hive of activity around the exhibits. Clients looking at the stunning yachts for sale were hosted in the ultimate style with a range of VIP services on offer.
