This unmissable event for yachting industry professionals promises an unforgettable experience that includes luxury yacht exhibitions, networking opportunities and a celebration of all things yachting.

“We are proud and excited to welcome them once again to the beautiful shores of Antigua, for what is already shaping up to be a great edition of the Antigua Yacht Show.

Our team wants to ensure that networking at our event is a truly memorable, positive and successful experience for all our guests,” the organization says.

The Charter Yacht Show was born in 1961 and each year, its celebration marks the beginning of the sailing season in the Caribbean, bringing together brokers, crews, sellers and the specialized press.

In each edition the best yachts in the world are presented: around sixty vessels between 50 and 231 feet or more. The exhibition also includes motor yachts, sailing yachts and multihulls on display around Antigua's historic Nelson's Dockyard, attracting yachting enthusiasts from North America, Europe and the Caribbean islands.

For several years the event has supported different charitable organizations through donations from organizers and attendees.

The sea and gastronomy
The event has space for entertainment and social gatherings. Among the highlights is the thematic gastronomic contest “the Concours de Chef”, where the culinary skills and design of the tables by the different crews are displayed.

This year, the competition will focus on international cuisine, focusing on sustainable products. “As yacht chefs, participants maintain a nomadic lifestyle and this allows them to experience and immerse themselves in new cultures, cuisines and ingredients from the countries they visit on their travels. In the contest menu we want you to
share innovative creations obtained from your international experience. The use of sustainable products is an aspect that has a positive impact on our planet, and we want their use to stand out in their creations,” the organization explains.

The goal of the contest is to showcase the incredible equipment on the boats participating in the exhibition to give them visibility and perhaps potentially increase their bookings.
