The Isle of Man SuperYacht Forum will be present at the prominent London Yacht, Jet and Prestige Car Show. The event represents a new show in the luxury asset management calendar and will be held at the historic Thames-side exhibition venue Old Billingsgate, as well as the luxury yacht marina St Katharine Docks by Tower Bridge from April 8 to 10, 2015.
It is billed by the organisers as “Monaco comes to London” as it will be bringing many of the large yacht and jet and luxury goods companies which exhibit at the annual Monaco Yacht Show to London for the first time.
Visitors to this new event will see exhibits from some of the world’s luxury yacht builders and brokers, yacht charter agents, yacht and interior designers, private jet manufacturers, luxury car manufacturers and luxury goods and service companies.
Commenting on the Forum’s participation at the show the Forum’s Chairman Andy Roy said: “The Forum has been in existence for ten years and in that time the membership and our collective activities promoting the many benefits of the Isle of Man has grown remarkably. Last year, for the first time, we shared the Isle of Man’s Ship Registry stand at Monaco and everyone who participated and attended agreed that it was a great success. We were first approached by the organisers of this new show some four months ago and immediately saw its potential as a way of promoting our various activities in the global luxury asset management market, and not just those tailored to superyachts. The exhibitors are of the highest quality and we expect the visitors to be the same and it is worth emphasising that the Isle of Man is the only jurisdiction and Flag Sate that has a presence at the show.
“The show has already attracted considerable media coverage in the financial and specialist media and we expect even greater coverage once it is underway.”
In addition to the SuperYacht Forum other exhibitors include; Lürssen Yachts, Abeking & Rasmussen, Amels, Nobiskrug, CRN, Benetti Yachts, Trinity Yachts, Fincantieri, Blohm + Voss, Sunseeker, Princess Yachts, Oyster Yachts, Azimut, Sunrise Yachts, Sanlorenzo, Outer Reef, Westport, Vitters, Hodgdon Yachts, Holland Jachtbouw, CNB and the Ferretti Group.
On the brokerage and luxury yacht charter side, several of the world’s largest brokerage companies including Burgess, Camper and Nicholsons, Sunseeker Charters and Fraser Yachts will also be exhibiting.
Located just 5 minutes walk away from the main venue is St. Katharine Docks where an impressive collection of luxury yachts will be on display in the water, together with a Superyacht Tender Show and a small craft show, where some of the finest ‘small but luxurious’ boats can be seen and experienced. In addition St. Katharine Docks provides the Show with a River Thames ‘dock’, where tenders can shuttle VIP guests out to even bigger superyachts moored nearby on the River Thames.
Visitors to the show will enjoy displays from each industry, as well as an array of special events and activities, including a Design, Fine Art, Watch and Gift Gallery; an exclusive VIP lounge; Fashion Shows; Design and Product Showcases and Thames-side Champagne and Cocktail Bars.
The SuperYacht Forum stand is situated at M15 on the Mezzanine Floor of Old Billingsgate Market.
Representatives from the Forum’s membership and senior representatives of the Isle of Man Department of Economic Development and Ship Registry will be on the stand to discuss the Forum’s wide range of activities and services to the superyacht and aircraft industries and the management of luxury assets.
