September 2023 – Navigating Boat Shows and an Abundance of Yacht Sales video
September 29th, 2023
All Berthon offices have enjoyed a successful boat show season this year, with much of the team recently gathering on the French Riviera for the Cannes Yachting Festival. Berthon International’s Alan McIlroy and Richard Baldwin were busy at the Solaris Yachts stand, where these innovative and beautifully engineered Soto designs attracted many new admirers, including a Solaris 50 recently delivered to a UK client.

Berthon Spain’s Ben Toogood spent the week with Marex Boats, introducing the brand’s new Marex 440, which is filled with clever ideas and refinements, alongside the rest of the popular Marex fleet.
On America’s East Coast, the weather held up for the Newport International Boat Show. Despite the pessimistic forecast, Berthon USA, who were showing the Moody 41 DS, had a stellar show, and they are now looking forward to wrapping up the season by exhibiting a Moody 54 DS and a Solaris 44 at the Annapolis Sailboat Show next month.
