April 2022 – Happy Easter, Our Yacht Market Report and a Gaggle of Boat Shows
April 13th, 2022
The Berthon Sales Group wishes you a very Happy Easter and we hope that it will bring some fine Spring weather for yachting, wherever you may be. With the approach of the new yachting season and now that international travel is a little less onerous, we have seen a super busy month in all 5 Berthon offices.
Please dive into the all new Berthon Yacht Market Report 2022. We report on all parts of the yacht market covered by Berthon and have 2 amazing guest writers – Simon Anslow from PFK on post-Brexit VAT issues, and Richard Power from Fastnet International who writes about yacht insurance in 2022. We also look at supply chain issues, COVID-19 and yachting in 2021, and why some yachts find it hard to find a new owner. The annual Berthon Forecast is also included. If you would like a hard copy of the Market Report please contact email@example.com.
Team Berthon are counting down the days to the Palma Superyacht Village and Palma Boat Show – 28th April to 1st May 2022. An International Berthon team will be at the Superyacht Village for the duration of the show to welcome you aboard our brokerage fleet. In the Boat Show we are showing 2 x Marex Boats. We are the exclusive dealers for the Balearic Islands. We look forward to seeing you there.
There is another UK boat show to add to your calendar this year! Berthon will be showing the Pearl 62 at London Luxury Afloat – St Katherine Dock 21st to 24th April 2022. A fantastic new event in central London with over 30 luxury yachts, both sail and power, on display. There will be new model launches, shore side displays and much more. The Pearl 62 and Team Berthon look forward to meeting you at Berth M007.
We were delighted to welcome FPB 78#02 GREY WOLF II to Berthon’s UK HQ in late February. We have known her since plate was cut at Circa Marine in New Zealand, as well as her predecessor FPB 64#06 GREY WOLF. Both yachts have steamed from New Zealand to Berthon taking 2 very different routes. Whilst at Berthon, Sue Grant chatted to her owner Peter Watson about his incredible FPB adventures. Please do watch the video…
Berthon Spain brings you the Marex 42 Gourmet Cruiser. Developed in-house by Espen Aalrud together with Naval Architecture from Nikl design and with exterior and interiors from VOM creations, the 42 is ideal for long, relaxing days at anchor. Available with Gourmet or Scandinavian cockpit configurations, and with a choice of a two or three cabin layout – she can be customised as you wish.
There is still plenty of time for yacht shopping and the Berthon Team remain on hand over the Easter break to help you with your yachting plans. Just contact your local broker at any of our international offices.
