It so happens that the Antibes Yacht Show traditionally opens the spring yachting season in the Mediterranean. As in previous years, the venue is the impressive port of Woban.
This boat show on the Côte d'Azur is famous for its dress «code»: only brokerage and charter, only over 20 meters.
This year it is held from April 18 to 21.
The atmosphere of Antibes has to do with transactions. Those who want to buy or sell a big boat should be here at least because the organizers have done everything to comfortably accompany the purchase. From the spectacular exposition to the comfortable areas to sign a contract and mark the deal with champagne.
Most yachts are available for charter: clients can choose a yacht and at the same time get to know the crew and the captain.
Since 2011, another platform (Refit & Services) has appeared at the exhibition, which includes a variety of services and «technical» support for customers. It includes master classes, meetings with architects and designers, and immediate advice on on-board electronics, engines and repairs.
Last year the exhibition was visited by over 13 thousand people. Let's see how it goes this year.
