The British superyacht industry was represented by almost 60 members at the 23rd show, both in the marina and on land, showcasing the very best of British excellence.  Joining Superyacht UK in a dedicated SYUK pavilion was a wide representation from the supply chain such as Brunton Propellers, Halyard and Solent Refit. Pendennis, Oyster, Sunseeker, Princess and Green Marine, some of the UK’s top boatyards, were also in attendance.

The international show began with increased confidence in the UK superyacht sector as SYUK published results from its seventh annual survey of members. The findings reveal positive signs of growth for the sector, with a rise in revenue of 3.9% to £460 million – an increase on the -2.2% growth recorded in 2011/12.

Continuing the best of British theme throughout the anniversary celebrations, the RAF Red Arrows took to the skies over Monaco with an aerial display. Over 300 guests were invited out to the breakwater for the SYUK reception offering the ideal vantage point to view the aerial display.

Tom Chant, International Development Manager at British Marine Federation and Superyacht UK, said:
“The profile of the UK’s superyacht industry was certainly raised at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show. We went in to the show in a bullish mood with our annual statistics displaying encouraging signs of renewed activity and this was borne out throughout the event, with members reporting increased interest and sales of their products and services. And with the Red Arrows flypast, Superyacht UK certainly captured the attention of owners, captains and key players of the global superyacht industry, positioning our members perfectly for future business.”

Eifrion Evans from Lumishore, who exhibited in the SYUK pavilion, added: “Lumishore has had a wonderful first Monaco Yacht Show. Aspirations and all our expectations were met and surpassed.”

SYUK celebrations and arrival of the Red Arrows were made possible through continued support of members Pendennis, Burgess, Superyacht World, Yachting World and Superyacht Business (Platinum partners); Sunseeker, Princess, Viking Recruitement (Gold partners); Design Unlimited, Saltwater Communication, Halyard, Yacht Carbon Offset, Owen Marine Marketing, Cockwells, JPMA, Atlas B2B and Ince & Co.

Excellent Progress reported by GO2 Global Yachting at Monaco Yacht Show 2013

October 02, 2013

GO2 Global Yachting, responsible for worldwide sales as well as distribution of GO2 (pronounced “go two”) Cerion Energy’s DAME Award winning diesel fuel additive, is delighted to report a great response from the recently concluded Monaco Yacht Show.

GO2


Richard Franklin, Managing Director of GO2 Global Yachting, says: “The Monaco Yacht Show is the highlight of our calendar. It was great for us to start the show knowing that 6 of the 100 yachts exhibiting there were already enjoying the benefits of using GO2, with great feedback on how effective GO2 is at helping with soot reduction. We’re even happier with the excellent response that we had during the show, signing up several new customers for immediate delivery thus starting a long list of new orders expected to come from the show as boats prepare to head west for the winter season. Once they’re in the Caribbean or the US we’ll be able to keep them supplied from our outlets in Fort Lauderdale, St Maarten and St Thomas, as well as using our door to passarelle delivery service in other locations.”

GO2’s next stop is the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show where they will be exhibiting at booth number 1215 in the designers and builders tent. “We look forward to returning to FLIBS again this year, where our staff will be on hand to talk about the benefits of using GO2. FLIBS is always a great show. We’re crossing our fingers that the weather is a bit less exciting that last years’.”

October 02, 2013

Ensuring the Australian International Marine Export Group is abreast of industry activity as well as opportunities for their members, the AIMEX group’s event calendar is full of major shows in Europe, New Zealand, the US and Australia during the upcoming months. Early 2014 will also see an important presence in Asia, with four shows in markets in this region planned.

Supporting their members in the west of Australia and maintaining relationships with key industry stakeholders and the Western Australian government, AIMEX & Superyacht Australia will have presence at the Club Marine Mandurah Boat Show next week.

Superyacht Australia will address the Marine WA networking event updating industry regarding upcoming opportunities, the outlook for the sector and inroads made this year. Given their proximity to Asia another key focus of the visit will be ensuring the industry understands the opportunities around participating in the Superyacht Australia Asian Engagement Project and Trade Mission.

Realising the synergies between the New Zealand and Australian marine industries and also recognising the opportunities to do business together AIMEX & Superyacht Australia had presence at last weeks Auckland International Boat Show. 2013 has been a particularly positive year with the development of the relationship between the two industry bodies (AIMEX & NZ Marine) with NZ Marine’s CEO Peter Busfield attending the ASMEX Conference organised by AIMEX earlier in the year and AIMEX CEO MaryAnne Edwards attending the NZ Marine’s equivalent conference.

AIMEX also has strong ties with New Zealand Trade & Enterprise having developed this relationship over many years. Having a team member attend this show has further enhances the organisations knowledge of this market and relationships consequently ensuring greater value of information and benefits available to their members.

Last week AIMEX & Superyacht Australia CEO MaryAnne Edwards accompanied a number of Australia’s superyacht businesses at the Monaco Yacht Show meeting with a significant proportion of the global superyacht industry and making some great inroads into securing global industry identities to attend the ASMEX conference in May next year who are guaranteed to provide outstanding value to delegates and members.

Before the years end AIMEX will have also undertaken the organisation of the Australian Pavilion at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS).
