MYBA Charter Yacht Show in Genoa: Day 3

Cleaning again aboard Queen of Andaman

Once again the rain gods showered Genoa’s superyacht charter show with its damp delights. Crew with determinately good candour seemed to have leathers and water blades permanently welded to their hands and fought an uphill battle to keep the yachts look sparkling.

It is Day 3 of the MYBA Charter Yacht Show and there are one or two thick heads worn by those who enjoyed last night’s parties. Never the less yacht brokers are out in force trying hard to get to see everyone of the yachts here on in display.

It is a tough job, two docks are packed full with sail and motor yachts from 28 metres up to 90 and competition to gain the attention of charter broker is hard.

Today we have chosen to board H2ome a striking 44 metre, black hulled, yacht with a sleek dark brown superstructure and huge on deck areas. Built in Italy her exterior design is by Mario Grasso while her interior design is by Marina Grasso and Federica Giovannone of A-Lab Marine. She is here at the show straight from the yard and she must return to another for a short visit before she will be ready for charter. Her arresting appearance is the result of considerable input from the yachts owners.

Without doubt, this love it or hate it craft is going to be a success during her first charter season in the Mediterranean and her first charter will in fact be for VIPs toview the Monaco Grand Prix. She is available for more Mediterranean work through Primo Yachts

Another brand new yacht, seen for the first time at the show, is the 62 metre Bistango fresh out of the Benetti box and available for charter through Burgess. Built for the same owner who previously commissioned the same yard to build him the smaller Alibella she shares many of the same interior decoration effects. High gloss lacquer work, plenty of gold leaf, the yacht is finished with heavy accents of cream. Large cats provide an accent through the boat with animal statues and skins; it tastefully could be described as Bling goes Wild. The yacht has an internal layout similar to her stable mate the stunning Xanadu and the finished details show the mastery of the shipyard

Highlights not to be missed by charter brokers included the Yamaha Piano in the sky lounge that plays automatically and deep down inside the yachts garage a sleek looking Ferrari Testarossa is finished in bright red of course!

Cloud 9 the stunning yacht built as a sister ship to Slipstream is here at the show and available though Camper & Nicholson. She is a pleasing yacht with stacks of wide open space and a light and airy interior manned by a can do crew lead by Captain Colin Boyle.

Evenings entertainment came with parties hosted by among many others All Services the agency that can fix everything a charter yacht Captain needs doing and the Antigua Charter Yacht Meeting who host the Caribbean counterpart of this essential charter yacht showpiece
