IT’S SHOW TIME
Visit the Antigua Charter Show 4th – 9th December 2022. Experience the wonders
the island has to offer along with some of the world’s most impressive yachts
Established in 1961, the Antigua Charter Yacht Show celebrated its diamond jubilee in 2021. The annual event takes place from 4-9 December 2022 at the start of the Caribbean sailing season. It is a celebrated meeting and is the world’s largest multinational networking event for charter yacht brokers, captains, vendors and press.
Set in the historic surroundings of Nelson’s Dockyard Antigua, the show attracts attendees from North America, Europe, and the Caribbean islands. Antigua has direct flights from major international airports and there is a range of hotel and villa accommodation within walking distance of the show. While the time honoured district still conjures up images of its 18th century past, there’s nothing dated about its amenities. Superyachts can now set anchor in Nelson’s Dockyard itself, thanks to the creation of a larger, upgraded dock. The marinas boast a plethora of maritime services with a chandlery and high flow rate fuel, supermarkets, gym, boutique shops/restaurants, laundromat, and medical centre. Everything the visitor or crew may need.
Showcasing the world’s finest Charter Yachts, the Antigua Charter Yacht Show attracts about 60 attending yachts, ranging from under 50ft to 231ft and over. The on-the-water show includes motor yachts, sailing yachts and multihulls.
The six day schedule includes numerous network opportunities organised via the dedicated hospitality desk. Situated at The Copper & Lumber Store Hotel in Nelson’s Dockyard. Charter Yacht viewings are made directly with yacht teams, often with advance bookings.
The main objective of the Antigua Yacht Charter Show is to create the perfect environment for charter yacht industry professionals to network, renewing connections forged over many years, as well as making new ones. The show is bustling with business opportunities and is one of the obvious reasons the show has been running for 60 years, it works and industry visitors come back year after year.
