February 2023 – Awards, Insights and More after boot Düsseldorf
February 22nd, 2023
The Berthon Sales Group hit the ground running with a great start to 2023 and a busy boot Düsseldorf at the end of January.
After the show’s 2-year break, we were delighted to be back, representing our amazing brands Solaris & Pearl Yachts and Marex Boats, with Berthon team members from all 5 international offices reuniting for this keynote yachting event. The icing on the cake for us was to celebrate the Marex 330 Scandinavia winning the 2023 Motor Boat of the Year Award and Pearl Yachts winning the 2023 Judges´ Special Award. We have a very full boat show calendar in 2023 and these are listed at the end of this bulletin.
We are working hard on the 2023 Berthon Yacht Market Report, reviewing the past year and looking into our crystal ball to predict the next. This year’s Market Report will bring you the usual forecast, news from our Flight Decks and an update on VAT – as well as articles on marine finance and yacht transport. We will also be inviting you to join us inside the marketing arm of the Berthon Sales Group – looking at imagery, video and social media.

Berthon Spain recently welcomed Guardiennage Captain, Giles Walton, to the team. You are invited to join Giles in ‘A day in the life of a Guardiennage Captain’. His daily routine is packed with tasks from protecting the Berthon Guardiennage fleet from the weather (come rain or shine), regularly checking all our yachts’ systems plus overseeing haul outs and launches. Oh – and did we mention the weather? He is on constant storm watch!
We are looking forward to boat shows in 2023. Please save the date and come and see the Berthon Team.
