Missy Johnston of Northrop and Johnson Yacht Charters,( http://www.njcharters.com ), Newport, Rhode Island attended the Myba Charter Show 2010 in Genoa Italy last week, inspecting crewed charter yachts available for charter in the Western and Eastern Mediterranean for this coming summer. Starting on Monday, May 3 and ending on Friday, May 7, this year the charter show had 67 crewed charter yachts exhibited in the show. Viewing the yachts and attending the show, this year were over 350 Yacht Charter Brokers from countries around the world to see new yachts available for charter, check on condition of favorites available again this summer for charter, meet new crew and greet long standing crew friends. This is also the time to meet with the Captain, Chef and crew to personally discuss charter interests for the charter guests for upcoming charters for this summer that are already booked, to make sure that the charter is all that the charterer is expecting, and more, including custom menu reviews, wines, dockage, special on board events, and special itinerary interests. After all, a crewed yacht charter is all about creating a custom cruise tailored to the Charterer’s menu and itinerary interests.

The largest yacht in the show was the custom motor yacht Nero, built by the present Owner in China to his design and specifications. At 90.1 meters, Nero is very comfortable for 12 guests, with a lot of interior and deck living space to enjoy on charter. A smaller motor yacht, but with a unique design that creates a lot of living space, is Icon at 62.25 meters. The first hull built in the Icon Yard in Holland, the design incorporates having the stern open and unfold into a large aft living area or “beach” as it is called on board, with a great swim platform, and sitting areas, with day head and shower in what has previously organized on other motor yachts as the toy garage. This innovation adds great additional interior and exterior guest living space.

As always, there were many more motor yachts than sailing yachts, however Cinderella IV was certainly a great new sailing yacht to see for charter. Cinderella IV at 39 meters for 8 guests has incorporated in the design, the latest performance details, plus interior cruising comfort, for a very comfortable performance cruising yacht. The hull and mast are carbon fiber, and the hull design has the latest innovations from Bill Tripp.

There were 65 stands of companies associated with the yacht charter world from provisioners, to marina operators, and other vendors representing many services and charter locations around the world, adding to the information available to all at this industry trade show.

This was another great Myba Genoa Charter Show, said Missy Johnston. I am very pleased with what I saw and look forward to offering many of the yachts inspected for crewed yacht charter this coming summer.
