Our review of the BVI Charter Show Winners 2022. Ms. Janet Oliver of the BVI Charter Yacht Society organized this event. Check out the winners in the different Categories.

Hurricanes, pandemics, or recessions have not deterred the Charter Yacht Society of the BVI from hosting its annual November BVI Charter Yacht Show for the past 40 years. 

The 3–4-day event enables each yacht to be showcased in their operation to an international sales force of charter brokers.  The show unites all critical players in the industry – the sales force, the product, and the landside services, which are vital to the smooth running of the yacht charter industry. 

Importance of the BVI Charter Show

Charter companies attend boat shows worldwide to promote their brand and then their most recent vessel.  On the other hand, independent crewed charter yachts are not identified by a company brand but by their individual and unique qualities. Even “like” yachts vary vastly depending on décor, yacht, crew, and amenities aboard.

As the yachts have evolved in size and shape, the show venue has changed, but that which has remained the same is the idyllic destination and the quality vacation product, whether speaking of the luxurious vessels or the professional yet amiable crews. 

Despite the advent of the World Wide Web, with so much information accessible, no amount of online research can equal the experience of visiting the destination, meeting crews in person, and seeing a yacht with one’s own eyes.  Charter yacht shows will live on even as technology progresses.
